Members of the public who are not associated with a club can often join club Reef Watch dives. If you intend to join in a dive please contact Reef Watch first. All divers should check the information line 0418 898 302 before departing from home in case of any cancellation or change in arrangements, e.g. due to weather.
Our training dives aim to be educational, enjoyable and, of course, safe. The dives are supervised by PADI instructors. To ensure your well-being and to meet the requirements of our insurers, we require dives to complete the standard PADI forms, including a medical form. If you answer "YES" to any of the questions then you must provide a medical certificate from a doctor confirming that you are medically fit to dive despite the condition.
To ensure the smooth running of these sessions please contact us to book a place (or let your club dive organiser know for club dives), advise us/them if you become unavailable, otherwise ensure that you're there on time and bring your certification card.
On the day of the dive, before departing from home, you are advised to check the Reef Watch Dive Information line, 0418 898 302, to ensure that the location has not changed nor the dive cancelled.
Note that all divers must be certified, medically fit to dive and must not have the flu, hay fever or a cold.
Divers must not have consumed alcohol, taken drugs nor flown in a pressurised aircraft in the previous 12 hours.
Divers must use equipment that: is in service; is in good working order; has been maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications; and has been checked prior to partaking in the dive.
