How to keep your diving dream safe

The Covid-19 virus has affected our lives: what was once normal and spontaneous is now forbidden or controlled. The relationship between people has changed, and with it the way we approach our everyday lives. Scuba diving connects people with the same passion to the underwater world. But what can you do when you have to follow social distancing restrictions?
The scuba diving community is confronting the challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic all around the world. We want to keep our diving dreams alive and Covid-19 is not going to stop us on our adventure. So here are some Covid-19 risk reduction and diving safety tips to keep you and the people around you safe from Covid-19 while enjoying your scuba diving experience.

Personal Hygiene

Personal hygiene is the Nr. 1 rule!
Always practice a high level of hygiene, including frequently washing your hands, coughing or sneezing into your elbow and not touching your face.


Practice social distancing as much as possible and wear a mask if it is not possible to keep the distance.


According to DAN, divers should sanitize equipment in a 10% bleach solution or an antibacterial and chlorhexidine solution. This is especially important for masks, snorkels, whistles and BCD oral inflators.


Use defog instead of saliva on your mask prior to entering the water. If you dive with your own mask, you will be 100% safe.

Air sharing

For buddy checks and air sharing training exercises: do NOT use the same mouthpiece as your dive buddy, unless it’s an emergency situation.


Carry disinfectant solution in your dive bag in case any other situations arise.


Always keep your diving certifications and dive insurance up to date. Carry your certification cards and insurance information with you.


Choose the best travel insurance for you and read the small print as some travel insurance companies are refusing to pay out for COVID-19 related claims.


If we provide transport, all passengers must wear a mask. The use of a private vehicle is recommended.

Private equipment

Using private scuba diving equipment is the best way to keep safe. Ask for a customer special price.

Sea water power

A SARS-CoV-2 infection by contact with sea water is highly unlikely. However, respecting social distancing and not touching people is recommended.
