I understand that scuba diving is a hazardous activity with inherent risks and dangers associated therewith including, but not limited to, risks associated with equipment failure, perils of the sea, as well as acts of fellow divers which could result in my serious injury or death.

I do not have in my possession any illegal drugs, nor am I taking, nor have I recently taken any drugs or medications which could cause an adverse reaction as a result of combining such drugs and/or medication with scuba diving. Prior to diving, I will inspect all equipment to be used to make sure that it is in good operating condition. I will not hold the released parties or anyone else responsible for my failure to inspect my equipment prior to diving or for any equipment failure which may occur. I understand that I have an affirmative duty to plan and carry out my own dive and to be responsible for my own safety. By way of my signature I expressly agree that I will plan all my dives as no decompression dives and within safe limits of recreational scuba diving.

I am fully aware and have been trained in the dangers, risks and hazards of holding my breath while diving on compressed air. I fully agree not to hold the released parties responsible for any such injuries sustained by me. I understand that diving activities may be conducted in a remote site by time and distance from a medical facility and a recompression chamber. Nevertheless, I expressly wish to proceed with diving activities and assume all related risks. I understand there is no obligation on the part of the released parties to provide medical assistance or first aid.
