Customer guide to a safe diving holiday:

Please arrange for your personal diving and health insurance prior to your arrival.

Listen carefully to all dive briefings to ensure that you have a safe dive holiday.

Providing that you dive within the limits it is extremely unlikely that you will need any treatment for decompression injuries.

You are responsible for your own health so do not dive under the effects of alcohol, tiredness, drugs, illness, dehydration and some prescription medicines.

If you have any doubts or questions about your fitness to dive then discuss these with the staff at the dive center.

Every diving professional will have first aid training and all boats and equipment will be regularly inspected and serviced.

PADI is the largest diver training organisation in the world and all of its professional members work within rigidly defined safety standards.

Hospitals in the cities are of international standards.

There is an Hyperbaric chambers (or re-compression chambers) on Sipadan island.
