It makes sense as golfers normally can easily maintain the 2 metre distance.

I hope that the same logic will apply to dive operations as they can also maintain the distancing.

Some issues that may come up before they give it a green light is resolve the ability to Buddy Breathe (share regulators) without spreading the virus even if one owns their own equipment. Others are proper sanitation of rental gear like regulators, snorkels, Instructor, student social distancing.

Sounds good; unless you still have to have a barangay pass which they may refuse if you are over 60.

Or if you are prepared to wait 3 hours on the street for a travel and medical pass as is the case where I live. Glad I don't plan on getting out often.

Cheers, Steve.

This is a big topic of discussion on the scuba boards.

That is all easily maintained and enforced. In 24 years of diving I have never seen an emergency share air situation. They happen but I have never seen it. Never even talked about one occurring first hand with other divers and instructors.

Personally I am secondary donate (The regulator that you get to use is not the one I am using.) and that is the most common setup.

In an emergency, 100% risk of drowning and a lesser but unknown risk of the virus, I will risk the virus every day.

I would be concerned about rental gear sanitation, always was and that is a big factor in my owning my own gear. Last time I used rental gear was in 1996 on my basic open water course. Even if a shop is strict on having the gear sanitized there will be mistakes made, pressure to do it quickly to get the gear out or so the shop worker can go for beers.

I can maintain 2 kilometers social distancing on my fishing boat, but I'm still not allowed out. What makes golf so special?

I have heard of small boats for less than 5000 p. Lots of the fishers here are poor powerless locals just trying to get supper.


Unfortunately for me, only foreigners dive. All I can rely upon is the power of the local dive operators to push the case to reopen diving.
