Covid-19 Concerns

Mick%20Corona%20Virus%20COA.jpg

We are living through unprecedented circumstances and we are all currently confronted with a great deal of uncertainty. Safety of our staff and divers has always been a core value of our business, therefore Lets Go Adventures has been closely following the very concerning circumstances developing as a result of COVID-19 for the last couple of months.

According to all current official advice, as long as basic hygiene precautions are followed, then snorkelling and scuba diving can remain a healthy and enjoyable activity.


By its very nature Scuba Diving avoids some of the chief causes of the disease transmission. Dives are conducted out in the fresh air, personal contact is limited and during the actual dives we are breathing clean, highly filtered air.

Our usual procedure after every dive is to clean our hire equipment with a disinfectant solution, which accords with the recommendations provided by D.A.N. to mitigate risk of transfer of COVID-19. For diver reassurance we are also taking the extra precaution of providing a 9 to 1 bleach solution so that divers can rinse masks, snorkels and mouthpieces at their own discretion. 

With these, and other precautions in place it is our intention to continue to plan and conduct diving activities until circumstances and or government directives dictate that we must pause. We hope this will enable us to continue to employ our dedicated team of staff throughout this crisis.
 

Therefore we ask that you join us in maintaining a positive attitude in these uncertain times and consider joining us on some of the adventures that we have planned over the next few months.

What can you do to help?
  • Always ensure good hygiene practices. 
  • Have patience as we review each of our planned trips, booked dive travel and events.
    • If plans change we will update via email, facebook and personal phone calls to those with bookings.
