Blue Planet Scuba's COVID-19 Outbreak Response

The health and safety of our divers continues to be our highest concern. We are closely monitoring the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, local health officials around the country and the Divers Alert Network and will rely on their expert recommendations. 


Until further notice, all training classes will proceed as planned. If you’re not feeling well, please contact us immediately to reschedule as needed. We will waive any rescheduling fees in light of the current situation. 

While we have always been vigilant about sanitizing all our dive gear, we will be taking extra precautions both at the pool and at the lake during training weekends to ensure everyone’s safety. Click here to read the article put out by the Divers Alert Network and know that we have always used Steramine for sanitation of dive gear. We will have buckets of this sanitizer readily available during all trainings so our divers can feel certain their gear is safe to use.


As of now, all scheduled group travel will proceed as planned. We’re in direct contact with the various destinations and we’re monitoring U.S. State Department travel advisories. If any scheduled trips are cancelled, we will work with the destinations to arrange refunds or credits, but this will need to be done on a case by case basis.

If you have concerns about your upcoming travel, click here to read an article from the travel industry that will hopefully make you feel more secure about traveling! You can also search the State Department’s country specific updates by clicking here.

All of us at Blue Planet Scuba understand that this issue is cause for concern to many of you. As the situation changes, we will make decisions with the health and safety of our divers our top priority and share new information as it arrives.
