The Raja Ampat archipelago is very remote. In the unfortunate event of a diving emergency, the best care is far from Sorong. The nearest Hyperbaric chambers are located in Manado (Sulawesi), Singapore and Darwin (Australia).
In order to maximise diving safety, Raja4Divers requires the following:
• All guests must sign a Liability release. • All diving guests must be certified Scuba Divers, and must present a valid Certification Card upon arrival. • All guests using Nitrox must be Enriched Air certified, and must present a valid Enriched Air Certification Card upon arrival. • Diving computers are mandatory. All diving guests must dive with computer. • All dives are recreational and are planned within non-decompression limits. • Diving guests who have previously experienced DCS must bring a letter of clearance from their Hyperbaric Doctor. • An SMB (Surface Marker Buoy) is mandatory, if you do not have your own, you will be issued with a loaner for the duration of the trip. • Dive insurance is mandatory. All guests must have dedicated diving insurance which covers for emergency evacuation, and must present proof/card upon arrival. Divers Alert Network (DAN) is recommended. • Please keep in mind that your diving insurance covers accidents only within the depth limit of your certification. For Open Water Divers (max. 18m) we offer the Adventure Deep Dive course that will allow you to dive up to 30m.
Special notes: Travel insurance is NOT the same as dedicated Diving Insurance, which is specific to diving emergencies; travel insurance may not cover for emergency evacuation and DCS treatment.
