Notes for Divers’ Safety Measures:-

Certified divers need to assess their condition objectively. It is not worth compromising their safety — which could ruin more than the whole trip — because he/she is in a hurry to make the first dive.


How long does a Diver have to wait before flying after diving?

- Staying at ground level before going to altitude is like doing a decompression stop. Deeper and longer dives will leave with more residual nitrogen, thus requiring a longer pre-flight surface interval. The time the diver should wait relates directly to the pattern of diving completed.

- We recommend a general practice of allowing a surface interval of 24 hours or more before flying after diving. This should bring reasonable peace of mind and help to provide a buffer for unexpected problems, like a loss of cabin pressurization during flight. Ultimately, it is better safe than sorry and almost every location has enough to entertain for the final day.

- Flying After Diving (last day at resort) – We, at The Reef believe that this differs from different individuals, agencies and even dive computers / dive tables. If divers choose to dive less than 24 hours (recommended hours) before they fly, they will be required to sign a separate Liability/Release Form for this matter. However, this is still subject to the approval of the Dive Centre management.



In the event of cancellation, the following cancellation shall applies:

#Confirmation date to 8 days before actual check-in date - 10% deposit of the trip's full price forfeited.
