Submit a Dive Plan

Scientific divers must be up to date on relevant certifications and training and must complete a dive plan using the online diving management system called Bloop. The Dive Plan form, along with a number of other forms can be found in Bloop as a PDF fillable form. After logging into Bloop, the PDF forms can be located on the left-side menu under "Documents".

If you have previously submitted a dive plan at Penn State, an account has likely already been set up for you in Bloop. If you have not previously submitted a dive plan with the University, you will need to first request an account by emailing the Dive Safety Officer (DSO) Dr. Timothy White. When an account has been created, you will receive notification via email on how to proceed.


The resources below offer guidance for navigating the online diving management system.
