 GOLDEN AGERS

FANTASTIC CRUISE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ELDERS OVER 60

GENERAL INFORMATION

With aging populations throughout the world and continued advances in medicine and lifestyle, more and more seniors lead active lives. Many pick up new sports or continue their favourites well into their golden years. The MV. Voyager, staff and crew are experts in welcoming & accommodating  golden agers offering age compatible activities, with some considerations.  .

 

SCUBA DIVING

Perfectly safe for most of us as we age, keep in mind the common knowledge of the strains and risks of old age on the body.

Golden Agers dive with Pemco's assistance:

 

+Full face helmets with direct communication to dive masters and/or instructors to reduce increased risks during the Golden Ages.  

+Electric propelled Pegasus Thrusters and/or underwater scooters assist with decreased muscle power

+Assisted water entry and water exit technology so no climbing up or down ladders and/or haul ingheavy equipment.

 

RISKS OF SCUBA DIVING FOR THE ELDERLY 

+Age doesn’t necessarily increase the inherent risks of scuba diving itself. 

+No scientific proof indicates old age has more risk of decompression sickness 

+Some health issues when combined with scuba diving can be a problem, check with your local doctor for advise. 

+An honest appraisal of health assists us to monitor your diving experience.  

+Decreased bone mass and muscle strength are also problematic for scuba diving such as heavy gear.

+Lifestyle choices and prescribed medicines from your physician can make diving safely possible. 

 

FITNESS AND THE AGING DIVERS 

+Monitor health, get regular medical check-ups, stay active and maintain good fitness levels. 

+Combined strength & cardiovascular training ensures muscle strength and maintain a healthy body weight.

+Keep up rather than to catch up.

+Daily exercise keeps the strength needed to dive but also helps maintain bone density to some degree.

SCUBA TIPS FOR THE GOLDEN AGERS DIVERS 

Metabolism tends to slow down with age, older divers are more susceptible to hypothermia.  Solve this by wearing doing our 5 MM Scuba Pro wetsuits or bring your own heated suit.  Pemco's Golden Ager Program makes shallower dives, to protect against exposure. Prescription masks and contact lenses can solve the problem of poor vision. Diving is a completely viable form of physical activity for baby boomers and seniors alike.
