Can I fly after diving?

Updated: 08-Mar-2007

There are regulations about flying or going to altitude after diving.

Currently the rules state that for a single no decompression dive, you should not fly/go to altitude for at least 12 hours.

For multiple dives you should not fly/go to altitude for at least 18 hours.

It is recommended to wait a minimum of 24 hours whenever possible. This is a guideline only and for maximum safety give yourself as long as possible.

Please be aware that skydiving or a trip to Kuranda or the Atherton tablelands will include going to altitude, so be careful when you are booking tours to follow your dive course/trip.

You can fly then dive the same day, however not dive then fly.
