Sea Camp Hawaii – Dolphins & Whales

Dolphins on Kona Coast

Join Jack’s Diving Locker for a week long day camp devoted to dolphins and whales. The Kona coast on the island of Hawaii is well known for its resident dolphin pods that cruise the coastline. Campers will learn all about dolphins and then go on a boat trip for a chance to observe them in the wild!  During the week, campers will head to the beach to explore tide pools, snorkel over a coral reef, get some Hawaiian shave ice and conduct a beach clean-up. Instructors will teach the PADI Skin Diver course and certifications will be issued to those who successfully complete the requirements. Campers will also go on a real scuba dive in our scuba training pool with the PADI Discover Scuba Diving or Bubblemaker program.  Take all six Sea Camps and receive the Jack’s Diving Locker Hawaiian Marine Life Ambassador Award.

A Quick Look at the PADI Medical Questionnaire

Scuba diving is an exciting and demanding activity. To scuba dive safely, you must not be extremely overweight or out of condition. Diving can be strenuous under certain conditions.  Your respiratory and circulatory systems must be in good health. All body air spaces must be normal and healthy. A person with heart trouble, a current cold or congestion, epilepsy, asthma, a severe medical problem, or who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs, should not dive. If taking medication, consult your doctor before participating in this program.  The purpose of this Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by a physician before participating in recreational scuba diving. A positive response to a question does not necessarily disqualify you from diving. A positive response means that there is a preexisting condition that may affect your safety while diving and you must seek the advice of a physician.  Please answer the following questions on your past and present medical history with a YES or NO. If you are not sure, answer YES. If any of these items apply to you, we must request that you consult with a physician prior to participating in scuba diving. Your PADI Professional will supply you with a PADI Medical Statement and Guidelines for Recreational Scuba Diver’s Physical Examination to take to a physician.
