Testimonial

My name is Julika Kennaway! I had a major diving crisis. It was on a remote island in West Papua in Indonesia. Without DAN I dread to think what would have happened to me. The reality is that I could be blind, paralysed or dead.

Each guide delivers relevant diver health and safety information in a concise, easy-to-read format.

Take note
THIS WILL BENEFIT YOU

Your  primary medical insurance may exclude scuba diving as a hazardous recreational activity and/or may not provide coverage when you are traveling out of the country. If it does provide coverage, it may pay only a minimal amount for chamber treatments. There are also often large out-of-pocket payments for deductibles and co-pays. These alone can total thousands of Rands.  DAN's Dive Cover Plans are recognised worldwide and can be confirmed 24 hours a day through the DAN Emergency Hotline (+27 828 10 60 10). DAN's Dive Cover Plans provide secondary cover of up to R800 000 and pay 100% of eligible expenses.
