Medical For Diving

Download medical form

For most courses: If you are thinking of taking a PADI diving course and have any pre-existing medical conditions, please take a look at PADI’s medical form, and read it carefully. If you answer "YES" to any of the conditions, you must have it completed by a doctor prior to any in-water training. It is probable that you will still be able to dive, however, you do need to have a doctor complete the paperwork.

There is no doctor on the island, so if you do it here it will take about a 3 hour round trip to the mainland.  This takes time, but is inexpensive. It is best to get it in advance if you are short on time.

If you are thinking of taking PADI's Divemaster or Instructor course, you must have the medical form completed in full by a doctor, regardless of any pre-existing medical conditions. If necessary, you can go to the doctor on the mainland.
