Scuba diving Medical

When you are planning on visiting the Great Barrier Reef there are a few things you should know.

A good place to start is completing the scuba diving medical questionnaire.  This questionnaire will let you know straight away if you need to see a dive doctor to be able to participate in scuba diving.

Some medical conditions, age, and medications may prevent you from scuba diving.
