Under Pressure Dive Policies for COVID-19:

  • All Dive Crew & Guests are asked to wear a face cover while in the cabin and around others.
  • Please fiil out and print the Under Pressure Waiver Form prior to arrival.  A link to it is on our main Charter page. Hand your completed waiver form to the Under Pressure mate. 
  • Please have your certification card out and ready to show. 
  • Please have all your dive gear (excluding tanks) inside a gear bag or bin upon boarding the Under Pressure dive boat.
  • Please practice Social Distancing while on the boat.  Scuba tanks will be spaced on the boat to help with this.
  • We encourage everyone to bring their own reusable water bottle or water bottles.
  • Please remember to bring a towel, snacks or lunch, and personal disinfecting products. 
  • Marine Head - Please remember that no paper towel products or wipes are to be placed in the toilet.  There is a trash can in the bathroom for those products. 
  • Please do not spit in your mask or on the deck of the boat.  If you do not have Defog solution, we will only have fresh water mask rinse bottles available.  The mates will squeeze water into your masks as needed.  There will be NO communal mask rinse bucket. 
  • The Under Pressure will be disinfected throughout the day.
  • End of Dive Day - ALL dive equipment and tanks must be removed from the boat to allow the crew to properly sanitize and disinfect the boat for the next day's dive trip.
  • We recommend that each diver bring a personal Rubbermaid bin/tub to store their dive equipment overnight at the Beach House after you have cleaned your gear. No gear is allowed in the Beach house and must be stored either in your vehicle or in a bin/tub outside.  Wet suits can remain hanging overnight to dry, but all gear must be stored back in your gear bag/box.

Tips to help keep you safe and minimize risk for exposure to COVID-19:

  • Divers should sanitize their dive equipment, especially - masks, snorkels, whistles, orally inflated SMB's, BCD oral inflators, and second stages of regulators.  Use a defog solution instead of spit for your mask.
  • Dive buddies should not use/share the same mouthpiece unless it's an emergency situation.
  • Carry disinfectant solution in your dive bag in case needed.
  • Wear a face cover (i.e., face mask, gaiter, buff, bandana, etc.)
  • Practice Social Distancing while at the Beach House and on the Dive boat.
  • Practice proper hygiene, including frequently washing your hands, coughing or sneezing into your elbow and not touching your face.

We appreciate your help and understanding with these guidelines that we have in place for your and our health and safety.
