Scuba Diving Spain

We can do it for you 😉

Tank check

If you have your own diving tank, you must have it checked periodically. These tests are strictly necessary and mandatory in order to maintain the tank and to ensure the safety of the person using it. 

There are two types of tests for diving cylinders. First of all, a visual inspection, your tank must have this done every year according to Spanish Law. Secondly, a hydrostatic test, this must be carried out every 3 years.

We can check your tank for you. Both the visual inspection and the hydrostatic test. Please remember that you must never handle a tank or open the valve, this must be done by an authorized inspection centre.

The price for the visual inspection is 50€

The price for the hydrostatic and visual inspection is 60€

* All tanks must be collected within 3 months of being tested. We reserve the right to recover any expenses through the sale of tanks that have not been collected.

Medical certificate for Diving ( NOT MANDATORY )

In Spain, it is not mandatory anymore to have a medical certificate done every 2 years to dive. Also, if you would like to dive at Tabarca Island Marine Reserve, is not a requirement the medical certificate. 

The doctor will perform the necessary tests on you so he can determine if you are suitable to do recreational diving. Prevention is key in the diving industry and because of this there are very few recreational diving accidents in Spain. 

If you have had COVID-19, your lung capacity could have been affected. So, we would recommend you undergo a new medical examination to make sure that you are physically suitable for recreational diving.

How to get a medical certificate?

First of all, if you live in Spain, you must go to the pharmacy and by an official medical certificate sheet (hoja de reconocimiento medico). If you do not live in Spain, you can ask us for the PADI medical form or download it from the PADI website. Then, you must take the medical sheet to a doctor so you can have the relevant tests done, this way you can be sure you can fully enjoy the wonderful underwater world.

If you do not know where to get your medical certificate done, we will be happy to suggest several places.
