All PADI Courses require a medical statement to be completed prior to the course commencing.  Please check this medical statement in advance and if you answer “yes” to any questions, consult with your physician. Your physician must then write a letter clearly stating that you are “fit for scuba diving” which you bring with you so we can keep it on our files. Without this letter you may not be able to participate in the course.
