Let’s Ensure Safety Before Exploring Underwater Attractions

Medical Questionnaire

Snorkeling and scuba diving are exciting and demanding activities. To scuba dive, you must not be extremely overweight or out of condition. Diving can be strenuous under certain conditions. Your respiratory and circulatory systems must be in good health. All body air spaces must be normal and healthy. A person with heart trouble, a current cold or congestion, epilepsy, asthma, a severe medical problem, or who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, should not dive. If taking medication, consult your doctor before participating in this program.

The purpose of the medical questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by a physician before participating in recreational scuba diving. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of a physician.

Please answer the following questions on your past and present medical history with a check. If you are not sure, check the box. If any of these items apply to you, we must request that you consult with a physician prior to participating in scuba diving. If you answer Yes to any of the questions click here to download a copy of the medical evaluation form that your doctor will need to sign prior to our dive adventure.

If you are doing a Discover Dive (a.k.a. you are not a certified diver), make sure you have reviewed the medical questions and can answer “No” to all the questions. If there is a check on any of the medical questions, this does not mean you cannot dive, just that before you dive you must get a doctor’s note stating clearly that you are okay to dive with this medical condition. You must review the medical questionnaire prior to reserving your tour. If you have a check on any of the questions please let us know, and we will send you a copy of the medical release form your doctor must sign to clear you for diving.

At the dive site prior to diving, you will be required to fill out and sign the medical questionnaire. If anyone checks any of these questions, they will have to provide a signed doctor’s note at that time stating that the medical condition does not prohibit you from diving. If you have checked the box and do not have a doctor’s note, you will not be able to dive that day and will still be charged for the price of the tour. You will have the option to reschedule if there is availability. If there is no availability, then you will not be able to reschedule and will still be charged for the price of the tour.
