Zero, the less expert often hear something about the No-Flight time in scuba diving, without documenting themselves properly.

Just tell us when you have the flight and we will schedule the program in a way that you will not encounter any risks

NO! Exclusion is a word that we hate, diving is for everyone literally, obviusly there will be individuals that will need a different approach or more attention, but that is just to give the same fun experience to everyone using different methods.

Not only that but studies have shoun that scuba diving can be a beneficial activity for the individuals in the spectrum, improvng social skills, reducing anxiety, and enhancing sensory integration. But like always the best idea is to discuss that with your phisycian and after his clearence will be happy to give the most suitable experience for the individual.

Depends, on what type of surgery you had, how long ago, how invasive, how did you recover from it. The best advice we can give you is to contact your physician and discuss with him, after you will get the medical clearence we will be happy to bring you diving!

I want to try scuba diving but I have no one to try with, how can I do?

Who said you needed someone to try to dive, and even if you don't this is one of the activities, if not the activity where yo make the most friends, there is nothing more fun than meeting someone that is doing your same course, it's excited for the same dive, exchanging the pictures you took underwater, filling the logbook pages together. But also divemaster and instructors can be your friends, of course you have to listen to them during the dive activities because they are stll professionals, but after that hearing stories from more experienced divers that did the same path you are taking, is  memorable experience.

So don't worry to not having nobody to dive with, come to our dive centers and embrace the warm and friendly atmosphere of thedive family.
