What to Bring

Visit the Dive Center

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.

For certain dive trips or certification courses we need to know about your experience. Divers who haven’t been in over 12 months will be asked to pass a refresher course.

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.
