Note on Diving at Sipadan:
* All divers must show proof of diver certification for each level and specialty
before diving is allowed.
* All divers and snokellers will be required to sign a waiver form.
* Flying after diving (last day at resort) -- The latest recommendation from DAN, Training
Agencies, etc. indicates that you should wait a minimum of 12 hours and sometimes up to 24
hours after diving before you fly. However, SMART recognises that people, agencies and
even computers and tables differ on this. If you choose to dive on the day you leave and
fly, you will be required to sign a seperate Liability/Release Form (Waiver) to do this.
You will only be able to do one morning dive; however, this is at the discretion of the
Resort Management. The extra charge for the dive on the last day is RM50/USD14 per
