Medical facilities and more information
There is a new hyperbaric chamber in Waisai, located at the Rumah Sakit Umun. Please bear in mind that hyperbaric chamber treatment is very expensive and operation times are limited.
Our dive guides will guide the dive very conservatively and to a maximum depth of 25m. The best marine life is in shallower water, it is not necessary to spend too long in deep waters. We do not do deco (decompression) dives. It is imperative to dive conservatively. Become acquainted with your dive computer. If you have not dived recently, please let us know, so we can do a refresher course. Additionally, we do check dives, which means that we will start with an easy dive site. We want to check your level and make sure that you have an enjoyable and safe dive experience with us. After that, we will choose the dive sites according to your level, and increase the difficulty little by little.
There are no nearby DAN approved decompression chamber facilities in Papua. The closest chamber is in Manado and evacuation is extremely expensive and difficult to arrange. We provide Oxygen for dive emergencies, but Oxygen is insufficient treatment for DCS.
