There are inherent hazards associated with scuba diving and kayaking.  All the material on this website is designed for certified scuba divers.

There are documented cases of DCS in divers who exercise, work out or perform a strenuous task too soon after diving. It takes about 24 hours to eliminate residual nitrogen from your body. Those who advise divers not to exercise immediately after diving say that it might increase the chances of bubble formation from residual nitrogen levels. The research on exercise before/after diving can be contradictory.  Medical opinions vary on waiting between two and twenty four hours before doing strenuous exercise after scuba diving. The information shown here is not medical advice. If you have concerns about paddling a kayak before/after scuba diving and/or have a medical condition relative to the exercise levels involved in paddling a kayak before/after scuba diving consult a physician beforehand.
