Dive questions for CN
I will be getting SDI certified in CT this month and was wondering what I will need to bring/do in order to be all clear to dive when I visit in November. Thanks for any help.

I think I've got it now. You need to show up at the water sports desk soon after you get there with your new c-card (certificate) and a log book (you should have one but it's not required). There is a medical questioner they will make you fill out or you can bring it with you. This questioner can be found on this website. I found a link to it in the FAQs section. If you have any abnormalities (ie heart problems) they may require a doctor's authorization. You may want to do this in the states if you think you may need it.
They will review things and either allow you to sign up for a future dive or ask you to go through a check out dive in their swimming pool. The check out dive simply goes over the basics of diving.
SCUBA is a great feature at Couples. The 2 tank dive was great and they offer an optional night dive that you must experience at least once in your life.

From what I understand, if you haven't dove in 18 months you need to take a relatively quick refresher course at the resort. There is a $50 per person fee for that. (I got this info from the Water Sports Hut at CN) I would take the medical form with you or at least be familiar with it to make sure you don't have any conditions that need medical clearance for.
