Don’t forget, to take advantage of the online discounts you will need to make an online reservation in advance. You do not need to pay up front – we pass on your reservation details to the local dive operator and you settle up with them upon arrival in the resort.  Diving equipment rental is included in your course fee.

You will need to complete a health questionnaire prior to diving. Some medical conditions (particularly those of the heart, chest, sinuses, eyes, ears and claustrophobia) would compromise your safety underwater and, unfortunately, render you unfit to dive. If you suffer from any existing medical condition, this need not be an automatic to the Discover Scuba Diving course, but if you do have any concerns it would be a good idea to visit your local GP before flying out. If you do suffer an existing condition, we may need to ask you for a doctor’s letter confirming your fitness to dive. Red Sea Diving are, of course, happy to arrange a consultation for you at the resort, but you may wish to deal with this beforehand to avoid any inconvenience or disruption to your Red Sea dive holiday.

You will also need to ensure that you are covered for scuba diving under the terms of your travel insurance, as scuba is excluded under some policies. Columbus cover scuba diving as standard up to a depth of 30m.
