As we all know, the coronavirus crisis has affected many sectors, including the world of scuba diving.
In many countries, measures have been taken to allow diving enthusiasts to continue their activity while respecting the rules of hygiene and health recommendations:
Personal equipment highly recommended
The regulators must be cleaned with a special product to disinfect them after each use. However, it is strongly recommended that you have your own regulator nozzle. Of course, the diving company can provide you with one. As far as wetsuits are concerned, it is better to have a personal one, but renting is still possible.
Limited places on the boat
Even on a boat in the middle of the sea or the ocean, one must respect the hygienic recommendations. For example, most dive boats have to limit their places by almost half to allow a better social distancing. Wearing a protective mask is strongly recommended, as well as the frequent use of hydroalcoholic gel, which should be available in all parts of the boat.
Disinfection of boats and equipment
Whether day trips or diving cruises, the equipment and various parts of the boat must be disinfected regularly. It’s a double dose of work for the staff, but without it, diving lovers would not be able to enjoy their passion!
As for us, we can’t wait to get back in the water and be able to dive again. Thailand is still closing its doors to tourists (although it will reopen soon), and the diving season will resume in October 2020. By the way, you can find all our next diving dates and program by clicking here. But by then, let’s hope, the regulations will surely have changed, and we will of course keep you informed.
What is certain is that you will be able to enjoy on board our spacious areas, our Thai and Western buffet meals, and of course the clear and rich waters of Thailand!
