1. Swimming requirements / Do I need to know swimming to try Scuba Diving?: We say this LOUDLY! You do NOT need to be a swimmer to try SCUBA in Pune. The Try Dive is for everyone from 8 years going to 80! Swimmer or not, everyone can SCUBA!
2. Age: PADI offers SCUBA Diving experiences and certification courses for children as young as 8 years of age. Certain physiological effects of SCUBA Diving on a child’s developing body may pose risks, therefore, PADI India and Absolute SCUBA restrict kids below the age of 8 to undertake SCUBA diving activity. Similarly, there does not exist an upper age limit for diving; the only criteria are physical health, ability and enthusiasm, of course.
3. Medical Fitness: As SCUBA Diving is an adventure sport and comes with its own set of risks, PADI India has laid down certain medical conditions under which SCUBA diving may be unadvisable. In order to successfully undertake any diving program across the range of PADI courses, one needs to be in reasonable medical health. PADI has provided a medical questionnaire for self-evaluation which our PADI professionals will recommend every participant to read through.
