Do I need insurance for scuba diving?
DiveAssure Scuba Travel Insurance

With scuba diving activities, sometimes it does not matter how careful you are, accidents can and do happen!

To dive with peace of mind, you must put the odds on your side and protect yourself. Should an accident happen, treatment in a hyperbaric chamber or an air evacuation can be extremely expensive, especially if you are not in your own country of residence. This is why it is essential to be insured.

Why do I need diving insurance?

Do you scuba dive?
Do you take vacation and dive while you are abroad?
If you answered ‘yes’ to either of the above questions then you need diving insurance, and/or travel insurance that incorporates scuba diving activities into the policy.

You may think you are a safe diver but even if you follow all the rules of PADI, SSI, CMAS, NAUI or another professional diving association, accidents can and do still happen! Nobody is immune to a scuba diving accident and if you have the misfortune to be involved in a diving accident then the costs can be astronomical. This is sure to ruin even the best of holidays!

What dive insurance should I choose?

There are many good insurance companies for scuba diving. Divers Alert Network is a very popular choice among the diving community.
However, at SUB AQUA DiveCenters we have recently partnered with DiveAssure to cover our insurance needs. We highly recommend their dive travel insurance packages to guests diving in the Maldives.
