Requirements for participation in the dive safari
Every diver who wants to participate in a liveaboard must have at least the Open Water certificate and should at least have some experience. Please bring your certificate and your logbook.
A check up by a qualified diving physician prior to the trip is highly recommended. We also recomend insurance to cover your travel, and insurance to cover you in the event of sickness or accident.
You will be diving in some remote areas, we need to be self sufficient in terms of equipment. If you are using your own gear make sure it is properly serviced, and bring spares for any essential gear. If you will be renting from us, make sure we know your sizes and requirements in advance, it should be issued to you on arrival, prior to departure day. The Philippines is a warm tropical environment, most find a full length 3MM suit very comfortable, the typical temperature is around 28 degrees in water.
For safety reasons, a dive computer and a buoy are mandatory for all divers, if you have not used either of these before, please let us know prior to departure.
Before the safari begins, we conduct a check dive at the house reef of the respective dive center. This dive should definitely be done, especially if you have not dived for several months and are using new or borrowed equipment. It serves the safety of our safari participants and our crew. The check dive is included in the safari price and will not be charged extra. If you did not dive for a longer time, you should arrive a little earlier and book a refresher course to be fit for the safari.
