This hotline offers access to specialists trained in diving medicine and is freely available to anyone with a diving-related query. DAN-SA does not own emergency vehicles (helicopters, ambulances, response vehicle or any other associated emergency vehicles); we rely on third party emergency services and on their availability at the time of an incident.

Dive Travel Notice

A travel notification is to ensure that DAN-SA knows when our members travel abroad, and to add this note on our system. With the information provided by you, the DAN-SA Member, we would be able to ensure adequate planning for any potential evacuation procedures and advise you on the availability of appropriate treatment facilities where you will be diving. Please note that DAN-SA membership is not insurance and is secondary to any other Insurance or Medical Aid you might have. The travel notification only applies to active DAN-SA members.
Please also note that there is a limitation on DAN Membership benefits especially for remote and complicated evacuations. It is always advisable to take additional comprehensive travel insurance in conjunction with your DAN Membership to make up any possible shortfall in such cases.
