Almost anybody. The minimum age is 10 years old. There is no maximum age. You don’t need to be an athlete but you do need to be generally fit and healthy.
As a beginner we need to make sure that you are fit for diving. Please read the questions on Page 1 of this Medical statement. If you can answer ‘no’ to every question you don’t need to see a doctor. If you answer ‘yes’ to any question you will need to see a doctor before you can dive. The doctor should complete Page 2. You can visit a doctor. The doctor doesn’t need to be a diving specialist.

It’s possible but very unlikely. You and your Instructor can easily check your air supply. It’s like reading the petrol gauge on a car. For extra safety we always end a scuba dive with at least 25% in the tank (that’s enough spare air for about 15 minutes dive time).
As a beginner you will always be close to your instructor. If you feel claustrophobic just signal to your Instructor and you will go together to the surface. Livein Adventures Scuba have Instructors that have managed all types of situations for thousands of students. You will be guided underwater in the safest and most comfortable way dependent on your own level of confidence. You are in great hands and this is your chance to overcome any prospective adversity.
Sometimes on a flight or diving down to the bottom of a swimming pool you may feel pain. This is because the air pressure is increasing and squeezing your ears. This won’t be a problem while you are diving because your Instructor will teach you a simple technique to prevent this (called ‘equalisation’). You’ll be able to use this technique on flights and in the swimming pool too!
