Can my child just before a dive?

Yes. Actually it is a good idea to eat light before a dive. It is not recommended to have a full heavy meal before a dive.

How old does my child have to be to diving?

According to local law, persons can dive from 8 to 10 years old and have a written consent from parents or guardians to dive with us. If parents want to have fun by learning how to scuba dive can subscribe to the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) package.

Can my child wear its glasses under the mask?

No, but under the water, sight is magnified by one third more and we are only interested in seeing objects close to us.

Can my child wear its contact lenses under the mask?

Yes, soft lenses can be worn, but we advise not to wear hard or medium hard lenses because there is a possibility to lose them. Sight underwater is magnified by one third more.

My child's ears hurt when he/she dive to the bottom of a pool. Won’t they hurt when I scuba dive?

The ears hurt because pressure pushes in on your eardrum. In your Scuba program, you’ll learn a simple technique to equalize your ears to the surrounding pressure, much like you do when you land with an airplane, and they won’t hurt at all.

My child has an ear infection can he/she dive?

It is recommended not to dive with an ear infection. Drops can be purchased at the pharmacy and it normally clears out after a week.

My child has had a perforated eardrum can he/she dive?

If the ear was perforated within 3 months it is recommended not to dive.

My child has Asthma can he/she dive?

If someone has severed chronic Asthma and different types of medicine are taken to control it, it is recommended not to dive. But for someone suffering from common asthma is able to dive but it is recommended that they bring their medicine with them.

My child is deaf can he/she dive?

Yes no problem, as long as there are no internal problems with equilibration.

My child has a pacemaker can he/she dive?

No, since little research has been done on pacemakers and diving, and due to the increase of pressure while underwater it is recommended not to dive.

My child has a cold and a cough can he/she dive?

You can cough through the regulator while breathing underwater, if the sinuses are not blocked with mucus you can dive. If the sinuses are blocked than you will have a problem equalizing the pressure in your ears then it is recommended not to dive.

My child has had an operation can he/she dive?

If the incisions have well healed and if the operation was not performed for medical conditions that will disqualify you from diving, then you can dive.
