FAQ

DIVING is no more dangerous than driving or jogging. The potential danger is obvious, we are underwater where we need specific equipment to be able to breathe, added to the risk of having to reach the dive sites by boat. That said, scuba diving is a relatively safe sport when performed under the supervision of professionals following safety regulations. Several studies carried out in the US, Canada and Japan show that the statistical probability of death during diving is 2-3 per 100,000 dives, most of the time the injuries are sunburns, bruises on the boat when walking on slippery surfaces or jellyfish stings. Following training and safety instructions under the supervision of professionals reduces the chances of unfortunate accidents.

The practice of diving with autonomous equipment today (January 2021) is limited to people over 8 years of age and has no maximum age limit, as long as there are no physical and / or mental complications.

Depending on the country, it is necessary to pass a medical check-up that certifies that you are fit and that diving is safe. In other countries the good faith of each individual is presumed and it is enough to fill out the following form, once we answer this form, if there are 1 or more existing medical conditions it will be necessary to obtain the medical certificate. (This certificate costs around 200 Thb in Koh Tao)

Nitro Dive has a very clear policy on refreshment programs to ensure the enjoyment of all its divers.
The less experienced will enjoy the knowledge of a diving professional to solve all their doubts and practice some exercises before venturing to greater depths.
More advanced divers can enjoy their dive excursions without altercations created by the inexperience of other divers who have not dived for long periods.

  • Certified divers with less than 20 dives, the date of their last dive being between 6 months and one year.
  • Certified divers with less than 50 dives and more than a year without diving.
  • Certified divers who feel the need for extra attention and want to start with basic exercises like rig assembly, pre-dive and buoyancy check, mask and regulator emptying, air exchange, buoyancy, etc.

SSI courses are designed primarily to meet the safety needs of the divers involved, the course objectives and the environment in which the dives are conducted, as well as the technical difficulty of the subject matter. Not only does the human body develop more as one ages, but experience, understanding and the ability to assess risk and react to problems also increases. SSI has implemented specific age restrictions to ensure that the diving experience remains a safe and accessible sport for the widest possible range of participants. More details on age limits can be found in the SSI Training Standards.

DIVE SKILLS UPGRADE

The SSI Scuba Skills Update program is intended to provide certified divers with a safe and enjoyable way to refresh and update their skills. It can also provide non-certified Open Water Diver students with another practice session before participating in their open water training dives.

When breathing compressed air under the sea we absorb nitrogen bubbles, before traveling we have to wait for them to leave our body. If you have done 1 dive you have to wait 18 hours, if you do 2 or more you will have to wait 24 hours.
