  • i'm planning to learn diving with an aunt, she's in her 50s and generally loves watersports. She has mildly high blood pressure. Any special advice or does it not matter?

  • If shes on medication.... like me.... shouldn't be too big a problem. But never the less.... start really really slow and inform the DM/DC about her condition.

    Btw... I've seen many a divers in their 50s... I even have a dive buddy in his early 60s.

    Goodluck.  ;)
