BECOME A DAN MEMBER TODAY!

DAN members have a passion for the water, a quest for knowledge and love of community. So be part of something bigger. Join nearly 500,000 divers worldwide and experience valuable benefits to make you a safer, smarter diver.

Divers Alert Network (DAN) is the world’s most recognised and respected dive safety organisation comprised of dive professionals and medical experts dedicated to supporting divers. Through research, medical services, educational programs and global response initiatives.

For over 20-years, DAN has created an extensive network capable of providing divers around the world with vital services. Everyday divers rely upon DAN for dive safety
information and health guidance. They know that in event of emergency, we’ll be there for them - no matter where adventure takes them.

PROTECTION

Smart divers’ benefit from this opportunity. The cost of a dive accident can exceed R200,000 a cost that isn’t always covered by primary insurance. But don’t worry, as a DAN member, you have access to the industry’s leading dive accident cover.

DAN offers comprehensive plans that provide protection and peace-of-mind in the event of a dive accident for far less than the cost of an unplanned event.

DAN’s Dive Accident Cover Plans are recognised worldwide providing secondary coverage of up to R900,000 and paying 100% of eligible expenses.

CHOOSE YOUR DAN COVER PLAN

TEMPORARY COVER
Sign up for Temporary Dive Cover as a recreational diver, free-diver or spear fisherman. With the temporary dive cover package you know that your dive trip is covered, it gives you peace of mind when you are on the move and is taken for increments of five days at a time. Cover is limited to diving outside your country of residence and only covers dive related emergencies. Cover limit of R300,000.

STUDENT COVER
DAN's Student Cover (open water or equivalent courses) is free of charge to entry-level students from the first pool session to the qualifying dive or for a duration of six weeks. Recreational dive, freediving and spear fisherman entry-level students are all eligible. Cover limit of R300,000. This complimentary dive cover, fully subsidised by DAN, covers entry-level students in the unlikely event of a dive injury during their entry-level training. As a diving-related injury or illness can be costly, it pays to be prepared. While entry-level students focus on learning to dive and getting comfortable underwater, DAN has them covered should an unexpected incident occur — above or below water.

SUPPORT DIVE SAFETY
When you support DAN, you support the organization’s ongoing efforts to reduce dive injuries and improve first response and medical treatment. One hundred percent of DAN’s profits are reinvested in research, medical services and programs that make diving safer for all divers. As a diver, you need DAN — and DAN needs you.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE GEAR
Every day, divers and emergency-response personnel around the world trust DAN’s oxygen units and first-aid kits to perform in an emergency. That’s because DAN’s products have been developed, tested and refined with input from leading doctors and researchers to meet the discriminating requirements of the diving community. Be ready to respond. Explore the DAN Shop to make sure you are prepared with the latest safety equipment to effectively handle any dive emergency.

BE PREPARED BEFORE YOUR DIVE

Enroll in DAN’s Free Online Prepared Diver Course
The human body wasn’t designed to breathe underwater, but with the right equipment and proper training, almost anyone can become an underwater explorer. Unfortunately, to err is human and accidents happen; but they don’t have to happen to you.

The five most common scuba diving accidents are preventable. That’s why Divers Alert Network (DAN) created the Prepared Diver course.

Most divers don’t plan to run out of air or make an uncontrolled ascent, but there are common, preventable mistakes that lead up to these emergencies. DAN’s Prepared Diver course is based upon real-life dive accidents and uses engaging video modules to help divers learn more about the science of diving so they can make informed decisions and minimise risk.

Prepared Diver Modules
Each video-based module covers one of the five main triggers of dive incidents. Once you enrol your divers, they can access and review the information independently via DAN eLearning.

Wild Coast Student Tour - Sardine Run 2020

The Just Africa Scuba Career Development students along with the Just Africa Life Skills Preparation Year students will be touring with us to Cintsa on the Wild Coast, 45km north of East London in the Eastern Cape.

The Sardine Run is an annual migration of sardines up the East Coast of South Africa from the Southern Cape to Kwa-Zulu Natal, where the fish spawn.
They follow a cooler than usual counter-current which passes close in-shore and there is an array of marine predators ready to meet them, from thousands of Cape Gannets, huge pods of Common Dolphins, several shark species, such as Dusky sharks and Copper sharks all the way up to the impressive Brydes Whales.
