Brisbane Water Aqualung Club


I understand and agree that neither Brisbane Water Aqualung Club Inc; nor any  Committee members, club members, instructors, divemasters, or other volunteers (hereinafter referred to as “Released Parties”), may be held liable or responsible in any way for any injury, death or other damages to me or my family, estate, heirs, or assigns that may occur as a result of my participation in club activities, or as a result of liability or the negligence of any party, including the Released Parties, whether passive or active.

I understand that diving with compressed air involves certain inherent risks, including but not limited to, air expansion injuries, decompression sickness, embolism, and drowning. Hyperbaric injuries can occur that require treatment in a recompression chamber. I further understand that this activity may be conducted at a site that is remote, either by time or distance or both, from such a recompression chamber. I still choose to proceed with such activity in spite of the possible absence of are compression chamber in proximity to the dive site.

I declare that I am in good mental and physical fitness for diving, and that I will not participate in club activities under the influence of alcohol, of any drugs that are contradictory to diving. If I am taking medication, I declare that I have seen a physician and have approval to dive while under the influence of the medication.

I understand that skin and scuba diving are physically strenuous activities and that I will be exerting myself during this activity and that if I am injured as a result of heart attack, panic, hyperventilation, etc., that I assume the risk of said injuries and that I will not hold the Released Parties responsible for the same.

I will inspect all of my equipment prior to the activity. I will not hold the Released Parties responsible for my failure to inspect my equipment prior to diving.

I am aware of safe dive practices. Accordingly, it will be my responsibility to plan my dive allowing for our diving limitations and the prevailing water conditions and environment. I will not hold the Released Parties responsible for my failure to safely plan my dive and complete my dive.

In consideration of being allowed to participate in club activities, I hereby personally assume all risks in connection with the dive(s) for any harm, injury or damage that may befall me while I am a participant, including all risks connected therewith, whether foreseen or unforeseen.

I further release, exempt and hold harmless said activity and Released Parties from any claim or lawsuit by me, my family, estate, heirs, or assigns, arising out of my participation in this activity, including both claims arising during the activity or after I complete the activity.

I further state that I am of lawful age and legally competent to sign this liability release, or that I have acquired the written consent of my parent or guardian. I understand the terms herein are contractual and not a mere recital, and that I have signed this Agreement of my own free act and with the knowledge that I hereby agree to waive my legal rights. I further agree that if any provision of this Agreement is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision shall be severed from this Agreement. The remainder of this Agreement will then be construed as though the unenforceable provision had never been contained herein. I understand and agree that I am not only giving up my right to sue the Released Parties but also any rights my heirs, assigns, or beneficiaries may have to sue the Released Parties resulting from my death. I further represent I have the authority to do so and that my heirs, assigns, or beneficiaries will be estopped from claiming otherwise because of my representations to the Released Parties.
