New Catalonia age Limit.
The Spanish region of Catalonia has set a minimum age limit of 16 for sport diving, rather than accept limits set by training agencies.
According to PADI International Ltd based in Bristol, Catalonia is "now working under the national law, which sets a minimum age of 16".
Those planning to holiday with young divers in Spain or the Canary Islands are advised to check carefully with the dive centre concerned as, Catalonia apart, other areas operate rules varying from national law.
