❗️Our Expectations of All Divers:

  • Divers must not attend any dive activity or go to the shop if they are sick at all or have flu-like symptoms (e.g. fever, coughing, sore throat, fatigue and shortness of breath);
  • While gearing up for dives/classes, customers should avoid physical contact and maintain at least 1.5 metres distance from staff and other people;
  • Each diver is responsible for making sure physical distancing is observed at all times where possible in the shop and on boat, avoid handshakes (or any other close physical contact), gear yourselves up and conduct checks without physical contact from others if possible;

Your assistance in complying with these measures is required to protect our staff and other divers and allow for continuing diving operations.
