Snorkelling & Diving Medical Declaration:

I understand that predisposing factors elevate risks for snorkelling and scuba-diving and some of the controls for some of the predisposing factors include but are not limited to: hydrations, physical fitness, and physical ailments. I am aware snorkeling can be a strenuous physical activity and may increase the health and safety risks to me if I am suffering from:

  • Any medical condition/s that may be made worse by physical exertion.
  • Any medical condition/s that can result in the loss of consciousness. 
  • Asthma that can be brought on by cold water or salt water mist.

I Agree


I understand that I shall be fit to snorkel or dive and shall not snorkel or dive whilst under the influence of alcohol or any other drug regarded as a contradiction to safe snorkelling/diving. 

I Agree
 


I understand and agree to advise the crew prior to any in-water activities of any pre-existing medical condition that I am aware of. 

I Agree
 



DIVING INFORMATION AND CERTIFICATION VALIDATION

To ensure everything runs smoothly on your day of travel with us please have a digital copy or image of your diving certification and any medical certificates ready to upload in this waiver when asked. 

All scuba divers please note: If you have ANY medical conditions or are taking ANY medications you MUST have a current medical clearance to dive from a medical professional.

Seasickness Prevention and Treatment*

Conditions vary from day to day. The trip to Lady Musgrave Island and Lagoon is an open ocean crossing and we recommend that every guest take preventative measures to avoid becoming seasick. Seasickness is preventable however is difficult to treat once you are experiencing the symptoms onboard. Pharmacists recommend seasickness prevention medication Travacalm Original is taken 40 minutes prior to boarding and 40 minutes prior to your return trip for the ultimate comfort on your trip to the Great Barrier Reef. 

For those who knowingly suffer seasickness Pharmacists recommend: 

  • Take Phenergan (seasickness medication) the night prior
  • Stay well hydrated
  • Avoid alcohol the night prior to travel
  • Get a good nights rest before travelling
  • Avoid milky drinks, coffee and tea the morning of travel
  • Eat before taking seasickness medication
  • Take seasickness medication (such as Travacalm) 40 minutes prior to boarding

*Please check with your pharmacist or doctor prior to taking any medications.

If you experience seasickness whilst onboard:

  • please make yourself known to the crew and allow them to assist you. 
  • move to the outside seating at the rear of the vessel where it is calm and our team can assist you
  • you will not be permitted to stay inside when experiencing seasickness as this will exacerbate the condition and may put the health and safety of yourself and other passengers at risk.
  • our team are there to help you, please follow their directions and let them assist you where required

I understand that prevention is the best cure for seasickness 

I Agree
