Flying after diving - CAUTION!
Please note: there are regulations about flying or going to altitude after diving, so plan your tours carefully. This includes going to the Tablelands which can be approximately 300m above sea level.
(Altitude is 300m/1000ft above sea level)
- Currently the rules state that for a single no decompression dive, you should not fly/go to altitude for a minimum 12 hours after your dive
- For multiple dives you should not fly/go to altitude for a minimum 18 hours after your last dive
Deep Sea Divers Den recommends waiting a minimum 24 hours whenever possible. These are guidelines only, there are no guarantees that these recommendations will prevent decompression sickness (Currently there are no guidelines regarding diving after flying)
