Courses and booked dives can be rescheduled for free if requested 14 days or more prior to the course. Course or trip bookings can only be re-scheduled once. If you wish to reschedule Courses and other activities within 7 days of the start date, if it is possible, there is a 25% rebooking fee (on the total cost of the activity). No refund or reschedule will be possible within 7 days of the course or activity. A new booking will be offered at full price minus the PADI certification and administration fees.

For all courses and dives, the PADI Dive Medical Statement Form must be completed at the latest, two weeks before the original first day of the course. No refund will be possible for a failed medical, or failure to see a doctor in time, within 2 weeks of the beginning of the course. Scubanautics Diving Academy strongly recommends everyone participating in a dive course or activity undertakes a dive medical with a doctor who specialises in dive medicine. A proper dive medical to the Australian standards can detect issues that could cause injury or death.

All divers must review and agree to the liability release details in the Continuing Education Administrative Document prior to diving. You must not dive with us if you do dot agree to exempt Scubanautics, it’s staff, instructors and dive masters from ALL liability.

In the case of medical problem, a medical certificate is required to rebook the course or activity for the customer with the medical condition. Cancellation and refund will be offered if the medical conditions stop the students from diving.

If the online learning material or medical has not been completed at the start of the course, we will not be able to complete practical training, the course will have to be fully rebooked minus the PADI certification cost. The student or diver can not take part in any water activity under the effect of alcohol or drugs. Be aware to allow 24 hours between your last dive and a flight. We can reschedule the course if we do not have our minimum numbers (5 for a course).
For your safety, the instructor can cancel or change the destination if the weather puts the divers at risk.
