You do need to complete a medical questionnaire. If you answer "yes" to certain questions you must get a doctors note and take it with you to the resort. Ultimately, the dive instructors at Sandals & Beaches Resorts have the final approval on whether or not a guest is considered fit to dive.
Medical Questionnaire Form
This is not required however we highly recommend travel insurance to cover a variety of issues. Such as, medical/illness/injury expenses during your trip, travel delay due to weather conditions, a missed connection or overnight hotel stay, and other unforeseen circumstances before or during your trip that may cause cancellation or incur additional unexpected expenses. We can assist you with options.
You must bring/show your Certification card which must be issued by a known accreditation such as PADI, SSI, NAUI. Bring your log book as you must show your last logged dive. If it has been longer than 6 months you may be asked to do a quick pool skills check, longer than 18 months and you will be asked to take a refresher course at an additional cost. A shirt, rash guard, or wetsuit is required to dive - wetsuits are available to rent and shirts and rash guards are for sale at the dive shop or bring your own!
Sandals and Beaches provides you with a BCD, Regulators, Mask, Snorkel, and Fins for FREE! If you need a wetsuit (preferred at some destinations and during certain seasons) they are available for rent at approx. $10/day.
