Scuba Diving Grades
Scuba Diving is covered to the confirmed depths per Grade, provided you are diving under the direction of an accredited Dive Marshall, Instructor or Guide.
If you are suitably qualified and are not Diving alone, the cover is provided within the guidelines of the relevant diving or training agency or organisation, as confirmed below:
- PADI Open Water - 18 metres
- PADI Advanced Open Water - 30 metres
- BSAC Ocean Diver - 20 metres
- BSAC Sports Diver - 35 metres
- BSAC Dive Leader - 50 metres
Most importantly, for divers going to this depth of water, 30 metres is the depth at which symptoms of nitrogen narcosis can occur.
This condition temporarily alters the consciousness, affecting the senses and movements of a Diver and causing them to experience numbness. It can also lead to hallucinations.
- A change in air pressure can cause damaged sinuses and ruptured eardrums
- Disability or even death, in extreme cases, can be the result of decompression sickness.
- Oxygen toxicity can cause the diver to have a seizure and drown
- Hypothermia, necessitating the use of a wet suit even in mild waters
