    hi all. back now from spain, done 5 dives at the medes islands.
    and was pleasantly surprised, the diving was excellent ,
    water temp 17degrees at 35mtrs,
    i never seen so many groupers and moray eels,
    and some of the biggest fish i seen.
    there were so many that i didn't even notice the small stuff.
    saw a sea hare that apparently are rare.
    overall very impressed,,
    on the diving insurance front i was asked if i had a medical cert,
    answer no, so had to sign some form of waiver.
    or get a medical for €50,
    now my idec insurance is up for renewal
    have been asked for medical statement,
    this is all new to me, iv only filled in the padi certs before,
    and answered no to all questions,
    so do i need a medical, ?
    thanks sam.

    Sounds like some great diving.

    Only need the medical for diving in some places around the world and for taking some courses.

    Medical not needed for diving in the UK unless you're a "professional at work".

    In Malta, none needed unless you are an old man, like me (over 70)
