There are also minimum age limits on continuing education courses
Upper age limits: There are no upper age limits on diving but you will need to meet the requirements stated on the Medical Questionnaire.
Although once in the water, diving is usually a relaxed activity, there is a certain level of physical fitness required outside the water. This can be supported if we know that a future diver has problems such as with back and leg pain which mean they will need extra help in managing equipment. Please let us know if this is the case.
Before learning to dive you will be asked to complete:
- Medical questionnaire
- Liability Releases and Acceptance of Risk Statements
- If under 18 years of age parents are required to read and sign releases as well.
These documents are available on the website to ensure that you understand all legal requirements before you sign up for a course.
Please use our email: firstname.lastname@example.org to book courses or to let us know in advance that you wish to dive with us.
