Your safety is one of our top priorities. That's why we are following all of the PADI standards really closely and we always think "safety first" in all of our activities. Diving is lots of fun and a totally safe activity, but make sure to follow the safety rules.
Safety and diving
We always encourage everyone to dive safely and take care of one of the main reasons for diving related accidents - dehydration. At Kuda Divers, drinking water is free of charge, available 24/7.
All of our dives are planned within safety limits and we expect everyone to follow their dive plan. We always carry emergency oxygen and a first aid box with us on the boat.
Please make sure that you leave enough time between your last dive and any flight you may be taking. Divers Alert Network (DAN) recommend that there should always be at least 24 hrs between your last dive and first flight.
Safety on land
Because we are living on an island, we have put a little extra thought into possible emergencies. Our emergency management plan is available for everyone to read at Kuda Diver's base.
Our center has 3 different size emergency oxygen, 2 really well prepared first aid box and a stretcher. And we also have fire extinguishers in every room.
In the case of emergency
Our closest hospital is located in Kampot (4hrs from here) and international hospital in Phnom Penh (6hrs from here). Our closest pressure chamber for dive related accidents is located in Thailand. When you arrive on the island, we ask emergency contact information and copy of your passport, partially because of this.
NOTE: We kindly advise every student and fun diver to have their own Dive Insurance. Our recommendation is DAN. This is special insurance for divers and they have dive doctors available 24/7. And also price is really reasonable. Insurance is valid always one year from the date of purchase!
