When you are ready to take that big trip of a lifetime, it’s important to know all the facts before you book your flight. While there are many different rules and regulations for what is allowed when going on a plane, here is some information about flying before and after scuba diving:
Can you fly before scuba diving?
Yes, you can fly before scuba diving. However, you should consult your doctor first. There are no specific restrictions on flying before scuba diving, but it’s always a good idea to check with the airline if you’re unsure about any specific health concerns that could affect your ability to fly after scuba diving.
Scuba diving is an activity that involves going to a certain depth underwater with a breathing apparatus.
Scuba diving is an activity that involves going to a certain depth underwater with a breathing apparatus. This can be done in several ways, but the most common are:
- Snorkeling, which involves breathing through a tube that you hold at your mouth (with your head outside of the water)
- Free diving, which involves using breath control techniques to stay underwater for as long as possible (without any equipment)
- Skin diving, which involves wearing an oxygen tank while swimming without an oxygen mask
Before you go on a scuba diving trip, take some time to read up on the correct procedures.
Before you go on a scuba diving trip, take some time to read up on the correct procedures. The first thing you should do is read through the safety briefing. You’ll want to be sure that your mask fits properly and that your fins aren’t too tight or too loose. Next, check with your dive master about the weather conditions and water temperature where we will be going (this varies depending on where in the world we are). Finally, ask about visibility at our destination if this information isn’t already included in written materials you’ve received from us.
Make sure you are well rested before you start your scuba diving trip.
You should get a good night’s sleep the night before your scuba diving trip. This will help to reduce stress, which can make you feel fatigued during your flight and drive to the airport. You may also want to take time for other activities that can help you sleep better, such as:
- Taking a warm bath before bedtime
- Listening to relaxing music
- Reading something that interests you
It is important to eat a healthy meal before going scuba diving so that your body has the energy it needs to keep going all day long.

Some examples of healthy meals are:
- eggs and toast
- yogurt and granola bars
- cheese and crackers
Many diving companies provide their guests with an orientation session when they arrive at the dive site for their first time so if you are wondering about how deep the water is or other safety questions make sure to ask them now!
When you arrive at the dive site for your first time, one of the things you will be asked to do is an orientation session with a dive instructor. Most often this will be done before you enter the water and it is very important that you ask questions about depth, safety procedures, and how long you can stay underwater.
Can you fly after scuba diving?
Your scuba diving instructor will teach you about the risks of flying after scuba diving. If you have been diving in less than 24 hours, it’s best to wait at least 12 hours before flying. You should also avoid flying if you are feeling any symptoms of decompression sickness (DCS). DCS is a medical condition caused by rising too quickly from a dive in water with high levels of dissolved nitrogen, which can cause problems like:
If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms and want to fly, speak with your doctor first and ask whether they recommend that you delay your flight until the symptoms pass away on their own.
One of the most common questions people have when it comes to flying after scuba diving is whether or not it is safe for them to travel by air within 24 hours of their last dive.
There are some serious health risks associated with flying too soon after diving, including decompression sickness (DCS), which can be deadly. DCS occurs when you ascend from a dive too quickly and your body absorbs more nitrogen than it can safely process. Symptoms vary in severity, but they can include intense headaches, nausea and vomiting, joint pain and paralysis—in extreme cases death may occur if an individual does not receive treatment quickly enough.
If you have been scuba diving in less than 24 hours and plan to fly, be sure to wait at least 12 hours until boarding your flight. If you are flying within 24 hours of your last dive, you should wait at least 12 hours before flying.
It’s also important that divers know where they can decompress if necessary during this time as well as what symptoms may occur when ascending too quickly from depths above 30 meters deep (100 feet).
Seek advice from your instructor about decompression and how you will mitigate the effects of it.

Decompression is a process that allows the body to slowly adjust to the change in pressure caused by ascending from submersion at different depths. If you don’t decompress properly, it can cause serious problems such as skin rash, joint pain and shortness of breath.
You can fly before and after scuba diving.
You can fly before and after scuba diving.
You can fly within 24 hours of your last dive (in this case, a flight that takes place less than 24 hours after completing your last dive). However, if you’ve been flying for more than 12 hours since your last dive, it’s best to wait at least 12 hours before flying again. This is because the nitrogen absorbed into your bloodstream during diving is released into the bloodstream at a rate of 1% per hour. If more than 99% of the nitrogen has been removed from your body when you go back underwater, this may cause decompression sickness (known commonly as “the bends”).
Conclusion: Can you fly before and after scuba diving?
We hope this article has given you a better understanding of whether or not it is safe to fly before or after scuba diving. If you are planning on going scuba diving soon, make sure you know the rules of your destination and follow them accordingly so that you can enjoy yourself while still being safe at all times!
