What to Bring

It is recommended that you visit a doctor before you go scuba diving, particularly if you plan on taking a course.

If you are already certified, we need some proof of training with an internationally recognized diving organisation (PADI, SSI, CMAS, NAUI, etc). If you have forgotten or lost your card, we can only check PADI certifications online. 

You may wish to bring your PADI Scuba Diver or Discover Scuba Diving log book if you’ve completed either of these programs.

You can hire equipment from us or you can bring your own diving equipment. Check with your airline about any extra charges for sports equipment before flying.
