Safety and Medical Info

Please understand that this a very remote location and the medical facilities are limited. Prior to arrival we need any and all medical questions and concerns addressed and remedied. If you do not heed this advice and still attempt to join a trip – our policy is to err on the side of caution and safety for all guests – we will cancel your booking and issue no refund. Neither our staff or the local “doctors” are qualified to decide whether an individual is fit to dive. We can not risk any individuals safety simply to join a diving trip.
Due to the remote nature of these trips, and the lack of medical facilities – in addition to the potentially erratic airlines – it is mandatory for all our guests to have travel insurance that covers trip cancellations AND evacuations as well as diving accidents. If you can not provide proof of insurance at time of check-in, you will be given opportunity to purchase insurance. If you choose to not do so, you are not permitted aboard the trip. No refund will be issued for lack of insurance.

With the activities we undertake and, most importantly, the well-being of our guests – we have strict policies regarding health and safety on our liveaboards.  If someone suffers from severe allergies or conditions – we must strongly urge you to re-consider your options for joining these trips. The medical facilities are minimal and evacuation to the nearest major hospital can take 12-24 hours in good conditions. Please learn more about these

Prerequisites/Experience Required

These trips are suitable for divers of beginning levels and up. However, the transit to and from Raja Ampat does require a personality more suitable towards remote locations. We do mandate that every guests have recent diving experience (less than 1 year ago) before joining the Raja Ampat Liveaboards. If not, we will require a “scuba tune-up” or refresher…believe us, the trip will be soooo much more fun!

Our team is happy to help with any questions
