Boat Dive Calendar 



To become a scuba diver, you need to be confident in the water and possess basic swimming abilities. Your instructor will have you do a 200-metre swim and 10-minute float to determine if you possess basic swimming capabilities. You should also be in good overall good health, particularly your respiratory and circulatory systems. 

Before beginning scuba diving studies, each student completes a brief Scuba Medical Questionnaire to identify any medical conditions that could make diving dangerous. If no medical conditions apply to you, you simply sign the form and may begin your scuba diving lessons. If any of these conditions apply to you, as a safety precaution your physician must assess the condition as it relates to diving and sign a medical form confirming that you are fit to dive.

Dive medical in accordance with Australian Standard AS 4005-1 (1992).

  • Some medical conditions may prevent you from diving, for example, heart disease, asthma, epilepsy, or diabetes. If you are unsure of a particular medical condition, please check with us prior to reservation.
  • The minimum age to start this course is 12 years. Children under the age of fifteen must be accompanied by a parent or adult over the age of eighteen.

Please note:
