Signing up for activities

Whether you prebooked activities or not, before you can join us for an activity you need to sign up at our diving school at least 1 day in advance. Then you can plan your activities, fill out the required papers, and fit equipment or have your personal equipment tested.
 

Planning your activities

We make daily schedules for the activities we offer. Our planning closes at 18.00 the day before, so make sure you come by earlier. Please note, that if you want to cancel a planned activity and get it refunded this must also be done at the latest by 18.00 the day before.
 

Paperwork

Every diver or snorkeler needs to fill out a participant form and the applicable PADI forms. Please bring your passportnumber and if you are a certified diver also your diving certification card and logbook for this.
One of the PADI forms for divers is the PADI Medical Statement. This is a list of questions concerning your health that need to be answered with YES or NO. If you can answer all questions with NO, then filling out this form when you are here is sufficient to be allowed to dive. If you need to answer one or more questions with YES, then we will also need a doctor’s statement saying that you are “fit to dive”.
 

Equipment

In the garden of our diving school we have a variety of top quality rental diving and snorkelling equipment. Our materials are serviced regularly and are maximum 2 years old.

When you are diving with your own equipment we check the condition of your BCD and regulator. This is a free service we provide to prevent unsafe and unpleasant situations when you are diving.
