DIVING COURSES AND DIVE TRIPS – TERMS AND CONDITIONS

All courses require a completed PADI Diving Medical Statement which can be downloaded below. The participant must answer all the questions with ‘Yes’ or ‘No’. If any questions require a “Yes” answer then a signature from a physician on the back of the form is required to confirm the participant is fit to dive. If this is not done prior to attending the course we are unable to allow the participant to dive and cancellation fees will be incurred.

To book the course we require full payment in advance unless an alternative payment scheme is agreed in advance in writing. Once booked your courses is non-refundable. If more than two weeks notice is supplied we will be happy to change the course to an alternative date but this is subject to availability. If you are prevented from attending due to a long term illness then we will refund the full cost of the course less a £25 administration charge providing you provide a valid and relevant doctor’s letter. Only the person(s) who is/are unfit to dive is entitled to receive a refund, if you will be fit to dive again within 6 months then we will reschedule your course to a date where you are fit enough to dive. Failure to arrive within 15 minutes of the start of your course will result in the cancellation of your course.

For UK dive trips a deposit will secure your space and final payment is required 4 weeks prior to departure. Overseas holidays will be subject to the terms and conditions of the suppliers we use.
