Been over a year since I got to dive at Hedo, but concerned with some comments I heard last year at Dominican Republic, that a dive company was asking for a doctors note to OK/allow someone over 60 to dive. I didn't dive there so only hear-say. Before I call Hedo and ask, does anyone have the answer from a recent trip to Hedo being over 60? All my health question/answers will be positive, and I will have my Advanced Open Water card, so as not to slow down the paperwork, it's just the age question I have. Nothing on PADI's site to help me.

Lots of over age 60 guests dive at Hedo with zero problems. You'll be fine. A total non-issue at Hedo.

If you are able to answer all of the medical questionnaire questions favorably, either positive or negative as appropriate, you will not be required to have a physician ok. The form(s) at Hedo are the PADI Instructional / training form and the H2 release.. I do go to the PADI web site, find the medical questionnaire and get my PCP signiture when i am getting my annual.

Here is a 72 year old Hedo diver. Just answer the medical honestly.

Honestly or approximately.
Taking cholesterol meds, for instance, is not a risk factor for diving...

Since I started this post, thought I would add......having returned from WWW first week of Jun, thanks for the replies....
.
Diving was great. As before, went on shallow dive first day, and since I like the earlier dive, deeper, four more times, so truly a great Hedo stay. As otherssaid, honesty and approximately, common sense, and all is well, nothing said of age. Love those guys, they take good care of you, and I like the new boat, easy to get in to from the water.
