Diving

If weather permits it should be possible to have one tank dive on targets we locate during the morning. Wreck One is to be located and we believe it will be in about 8-10 metres depth. Diving computers are required or divers will be limited to BSAC88 Tables.  There are not any strong currents and there will not be any over-head local boat traffic. The wreck is situated off shore and there will be a variety of coral life for some areas.  

As the team is going out to the site each day in local small boats, anyone who suffers from seasickness should bring the usual medication. The average survey day will be motoring at slow speed for the entire morning.

The ADMAT Diving Officer will be responsible for the diving. Full compliance with his instructions will be required.  Due to Health and Safety it is a requirement that all students speak and read English.

Participants must have the following certification as a minimum, either: PADI Open Water, or BSAC Sports Diver (or the equivalent under another agency). Members will be required to send copies of their diving qualifications with their booking. Original log books or certification cards must be presented to the ADMAT Diving Officer on arrival. In addition the medical statement must also be presented upon arrival.

Please note: All divers must be fit for duty in the mornings. Under Health and Safety Regulations, anyone under the influence of alcohol will not be permitted to dive.

Participants will be given a full brief as to the ADMAT Standards of Diving. These are for your own health and safety, and for the enjoyment of all. Team Members and students are expected to follow the ADMAT Standards of Diving, as well as the Code of Conduct and Archaeological Protocol. In the unlikely event that a member endangers themselves or others by knowingly diving outside these standards, they may be restricted from further diving or asked to leave the project immediately. Participants will be required to attend a Health and Safety briefing upon arrival, and to comply with it during their stay.
