Medical Requirments
Scuba diving requires a minimum level of health and fitness. Chronic health conditions, certain medications and/or recent surgery may require you to get written approval from a physician before diving.

Avoid disappointment, download and review the Diver Medical form to ensure you won’t need a physician’s approval to dive before enrolling in a scuba course. Instructors, divemasters and dive shop staff are not physicians and should not be asked for medical advice; only medical professionals can give medical clearance to dive.

This course requires both knowledge development and inwater training for certification. When you purchase PADI eLearning from our website, the cost covers the knowledge development portion only. To purchase the PADI book please contact the shop. 

There is an additional cost to complete your certification with a PADI Instructor. Boat fees are an additional cost. 

In addition to basic scuba gear, you will need a surface signaling device, such as an inflatable signal tube also known as a surface marker buoy or SMB. A spare parts kit is also a good idea. Descent Divers staff may suggest additional equipment depending on where your boat diving adventures take you.
