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

ANNUAL COVER

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.
