A casualty evacuation plan is in place with links to the nearest recompression facility in case of an emergency. This is constantly re-checked to ensure that it runs as smoothly as possible. Diving is performed with full safety equipment. The catamaran is outfitted with First Aid Kits and Medical Grade Oxygen. A fully trained Emergency First Responder is on board.
Safety is the number one priority aboard the Vaza Vezo. We plan all our dives as recreational dives (no decompression dives). However in the unlikely event of decompression illness we are prepared with a casualty evacuation plan, 2 x 4 litre medical grade oxygen units and a remote emergency oxygen unit (REMO). This re-breather system extends the use of our oxygen unit to 8 hours, easily sufficient to get you to Trinidad or Barbados where the nearest recompression chambers are, both of which are only a thirty minute flight away. Diving insurance is compulsory and we strongly recommend getting it from DAN (Divers Alert Network) www.DANEUROPE.org . For entry level training (Padi Open Water Diver Course) we can currently organise a DAN student membership which is free insurance for this period of training free of charge. Some holiday insurance packages include diving cover – please check with your insurer.
