DIVING F.A.Q.

    • I’M A CERTIFIED DIVER. DO I NEED ANY DIVING INSURANCE?

      Yes you need an insurance suitable for diving or underwater activities. Diving insurances are available at the Diving Center.

     

    • MY SON IS 8 YEARS OLD. CAN HE TRY SCUBA DIVING?

      Children can start diving at the age of 8 years old. To the age of 10 years they can get their scuba diving certification following junior scuba diving programs.

     

    • I’M JUST CERTIFIED OWD AND I DON’T HAVE MY EQUIPMENT. IS IT POSSIBLE TO RENT SCUBA GEAR?

      At the Diving Center are available full kit diving equipment including BCD, regulator, wetsuit, mask, fins, snorkel, diving computer and weightbelt.

     

    • DO YOU ORGANIZE SHORE DIVES AS WELL?

      The house reef is quite far from the beach so only diving boat excursions are available. In the lagoon is possible to dive only for children during their Bubblemaker course due to the very shallow water.

     

    • IS A CHECK DIVE COMPULSORY?

      The first dive is always a check dive. During this dive you simply have to remove and replace your mask, recover your regulator and check the accuracy of your weights. It will take just a couple of minutes then you can enjoy your dive.

     

    • IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I DID MY LAST DIVE. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?

      For people who have not dived for more than one year a scuba review is mandatory. It consists in a session of exercises in the pool where you can go back to the Open Water Course skills and one dive in open water.
    • DO I REQUIRE A “FIT FOR DIVING” CERTIFICATE FROM A DOCTOR TO DIVE OR LEARN TO DIVE WITH YOU?

      Every diver is highly recommended to have a regular medical examination to ensure he/she is fit to dive. When you register to dive with us, one form you will be required to complete and sign will be the RSTC medical self-declaration. If you can answer all questions with “NO”, have no other medical conditions and are under 65 years of age, then a “Fit To Dive” certificate from a doctor is NOT required. However if you do happen to have to one or more “YES” answers, and/or are 65 years or older, then you would need to bring a “Fit To Dive” certificate from a doctor. If you are 75 years or older, our insurer applies special conditions; please contact us for more information before booking your vacation.
    • IS IT NECESSARY TO PRE BOOK DIVES, DIVING PACKAGES OR DIVE COURSES?

      It is not necessary to book dives or dive packages unless you are part of a large group. Even once you arrive, you can simply dive and at the end of your stay you will be billed for the dive package that you have completed. Many courses need no pre booking – however please contact us anyway if you are interested in doing a courses such as Rescue, Dive master and some specialty courses do require pre booking and are subject to availability.
    • DO YOU PROVIDE NITROX FOR FREE?

      Yes, nitrox between 28 to 32% is provided for no extra charge to nitrox certified divers.
