Is Scuba diving safe?
Like any adventure sport, there are potential hazards. All of our diving instructors are qualified and current and our staff ensure that all industry safety guidelines are strictly adhered to.
Is it hard to learn?
Scuba diving is fun and easy to learn. It’s probably easier than you imagine — especially if you’re already comfortable in the water. Our entry-level course consists of pool diving, knowledge development, fundamentals and open water dives. The course is performance based, meaning that you progress as you learn and demonstrate knowledge and skill. Our advanced course builds on the skills learned in the Adventure Open Water Scuba Camp.
I have had asthma and/or ear problems in the past. Can I still dive?
Unfortunately, there are certain medical issues such as asthma and ear problems that can be problematic to diving. We are not medical experts, so it is difficult to give a definite answer to this question. Prior to participation in our open water diving course, a diving medical form that must be signed by a doctor. The bottom line is “safety first.”
Does a parent have to attend our Adventure Diving Camps with their child?
No, parents do not attend the dive adventures.
Can a waiver be granted if the teen is not yet 12?
Although 10 years old is an acceptable age by industry standards, Gold Star Teen Adventures will only conduct training with youth 12 years of age and older.
