Skin and scuba diving have inherent risks which may result in serious injury or death.
Diving with compressed air involves certain inherent risks; decompression sickness, embolism or other hyperbaric injury can occur that require treatment in a recompression chamber. Open water diving trips which are necessary for training and for certification, may be conducted at a site that is remote, either by time or distance or both, from such a recompression chamber. Skin and scuba diving are physically strenuous activities and you will be exerting yourself during this diving programme. You must advise truthfully and fully inform the dive professionals and the facility through which this programme is offered of your medical history.
