Health and Safety

Regulations

Diving centers in Polynesia are subject to very strict local regulations regarding the organization of the activity. See the text: DELIBERATION N ° 92-176 AT OF OCTOBER 20, 1992 relating to the guarantees of techniques and safety in clubs, centers, schools, bodies of underwater diving sports and leisure in French Polynesia. This text defines in particular the prerogatives of the divers according to their technical level and their certification.

Note some Polynesian specificities

French level 1 divers, CMAS 1 *, PADI Open Water or Advanced Open Water have the opportunity to dive up to 29 meters deep with their instructor. This advantage is related to the conditions of visibility and water temperature particularly favorable to the practice of recreational diving in Polynesia.

French level 2 divers, CMAS 2 *, PADI Rescue Diver can evolve supervised by an instructor up to 49m.

Given the current conditions in Rangiroa's passes, whether you are an instructor or beginner, you will be accompanied by a monitor who knows the site very well during each of your dives. We take special care to make small groups with divers with the same level of skill.

Insurance and Medical Certificate

Insurance

Y Aka Plongee Rangiroa and his staff are insured in civil liability.
The medical expenses incurred by a diving accident or even a suspicion of a diving accident are very expensive. Also it is strongly recommended to subscribe an additional individual insurance, specific underwater diving covering the "bodily injury".

Medical Certificate

The law does not impose the medical certificate for the practice of diving. Caution requires, however, to ensure the physical integrity of the divers. The medical certificate of no contraindication to underwater diving issued by a physician familiar with diving is recommended to practice this activity safely.
See ANMP recommendations
