Do I need to be certified to go on a Scuba Holiday?
No. If you are not certified, resorts offer a resort course for around US$70. After taking the course will be able to dive once a day up to 30 feet dives. Also, most resorts offer full certification as well as upgrades.

What if I want to do a full certification course?
We can help contact the dive instructor and arrange a course. Be prepared to spend most of your vacation getting certified. We also recommend you do most or some of the required reading BEFORE you go on your trip to limit the load.

I am a licensed diver but have not dived recently. Will I be required to do a refresher course before diving?
Most resorts will require all divers to do a brief check before diving. If you fail the resort check, you will be required to do a refresher course at an additional charge.

Up to what time before flying are we allowed to dive?
You are not allowed to dive on the same day you fly.

Can my non-diving partner come on the boats?
Maybe … This will depend on the captain, dive master, alignment of the stars … basically you can ask … nicely … and hope for the best.

What is the minimum age requirement?
For certification, divers must be 12 years or older. As an alternative, most resorts offer snorkeling trips.

Do I requite shots and medications before I travel?
It is your own responsibility to contact your family doctor concerning what is best for your own health. Your family doctor or community health unit will advise what shots and medications are required for the destination...e.g.: malaria pills, yellow fever shots, hepatitis shots, etc. It is recommended that regular inoculations are always up to date.
