Australian Scuba Diving Standards require that all certified divers are medically fit to dive. Should you have a pre-existing medical condition such as Asthma, you will be required to have a Medical Form (AS4005.1) completed by a Medical Practitioner with knowledge of diving medicine, prior to your arrival on Lizard Island. This form must be presented to the Lizard Island Marine Centre prior to you participating in any form of diving.
If you do not have any pre-existing medical conditions, you will simply be required to sign a medical declaration confirming you are fit and well, prior to diving.
Final medical clearance is at the discretion of the island Marine and Medical teams. A list of accredited doctors can be obtained from the website for the South Pacific Underwater Medicine Society: www.spums.org.au
No diving 24 hours prior to departing flights
Please be advised that safety regulations require that divers are not permitted to fly for a minimum of 24 hours after their last dive. If you fly to and from the island – this is critical information for your planning.
