Learning to Scuba Dive is the most popular activity here on Koh Tao, and we believe it's something that everyone can do. The Open Water Course is your ticket to diving all around the world to a depth of 18m, and we are sure you will love it.
However, as much as we want everyone to learn how to dive, we want to make sure that everyone is safe, meaning we have to check on your medical history.
No one wants to run into trouble, especially if it was avoidable, and definitely not while you are on holiday, so please be truthful in your answers to the questions below.
In the event that you might need to answer yes, we will need a Doctors approval that you are fit to dive. This can be done here easily for 250 THB.
Diving with New Wave comes with free diving insurance (designed to be secondary cover), while most travel insurance will cover you for Scuba Diving (it was downgraded from an extreme sport in roughly 2012).
However, if you lie on your medical form then the cover will be void.
