Important information about our Cuba diving courses:
A medical certificate of general health is a prerequisite for diving in Cuba. Our diving site may also require that you have a medical examination after diving. This should take place (if needed) at least one day before your last dive and flying home. This is to check for the complete elimination of nitrogen that can accumulate in the blood when diving. These guidelines are followed by all major diving organisations to ensure any health hazards can be eliminated.
