Practical information to prepare your winter sports vacation at Club Med

Practical information

Packages include scuba tanks, BCs, fins, masks, regulators and diving belts. Lockers are also provided. And your safety is always considered, as most of our scuba resorts have a nurse and a scuba physician on premises.


Go diving only if you are in good health.
Documents to supply before you get going:

- Medical self-assessment questionnaire (adopted by Club Med, in accordance with PADI procedures). Can be found here, and downloaded. Fill it in with your GP. Any positive answer to a question on the form will call your fitness into question. As a last resort, the opinion of a doctor on site will be final.
- A medical certificate attesting to the absence of contraindications to scuba-diving drawn up within the last year by a doctor competent in underwater diving (sports doctor, hyperbaric doctor or a doctor authorised by a scuba-diving federation). Required for taking any 1-star or equivalent CMAS (World Confederation of Underwater Activities) advanced diplomas.
- Identical documents and conditions for “Outside of Club Med” diving offered by outside providers.

Medical examination at your expense. Don’t forget your certificates and record of dives.

The following are required for minors:

- Written authorisation from parents and a medical certificate with ENT examination drawn up in advance by a hyperbaric doctor. This certificate cannot be issued at the resort.EQUIPEMENT

Transport to “Outside of Club Med” activities is arranged by outside providers.
