Procedures for First Aid and Diving Accidents are taken seriously at Ocean Tribe. All our dive staff are fully trained in First Aid and CPR. We have an emergency action plan enacted by all staff in the event of an emergency.
Boats all carry emergency oxygen cylinders and a well equipped first aid kit. They carry life jackets and rescue lines with a buoy. Tour leaders and dive professionals carry out extensive dive safety and roster procedures with boat cover available at all times.
The nearest recompression chamber for Ocean Tribe is just down the road in the Kenya Naval Yard in Mombasa.
As a general note, it is a good idea to bring your own small first aid kit with you for dealing with minor scrapes and illnesses. Other good things to bring include mosquito repellent and anti-malarial tablets (not Larium).
