Diving in Eilat: advice to beginners
We will not get into details of getting a visa to Israel, but start from going through customs. It is here that a diving beginner may face some difficulties.
What does a diver need at customs?
For you to pass the customs control securely you need:
- return ticket;
- a document proving that you have accomodation in Eilat;
- cash money on the basis of 80-100 dollars per day or other bank cards that can prove that you have enough funds to ensure your normal everyday life.
Does a diver need insurance?
It is preferable that everyone who comes to Israel has a medical insurance. It is preferable but not obligatory. Diver’s insurance is necessary not only for beginners, but also for professional divers. It doesn’t matter if you are about to make a trial scuba dive, or spend unforgettable hours doing snorkeling along the reefs, or go through diving courses to become a certified diver and get the ability to practice scuba diving independently, you must have a diver’s insurance. You can do this using the help of the specialists of our diving center. You can find all the details and nuances of this process here.
