For safety reasons, you’ll need to fill in a Medical Statement to ensure that you are fit to dive. If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, you need to have a signed medical statement from a doctor prior to in-water training.

If you haven’t been diving for over a year, Dive Friends Bonaire’s policy is to recommend that you refresh your dive skills and knowledge with a refresher. If you haven’t been diving in over two years, it’s required. Your safety is very important to us. Read our article When Do I Need A Refresher? for more information about why we require a refresher course after 2 years of not diving.
