    INSURANCE:  We strongly encourage purchasing Divers Alert Network Travel Insurance.  They off competitive rates, and your money goes to a fantastic program.  Most divers-in-the-know also have DAN Dive Accident Insurance.  Which requires an Membership.  Family Membership is $55 annually, or $25 for Individual Membership.  We have the Preferred level, but you could go Standard, which costs $30 per person.  If you have the opportunity to use my referral number, we get points: 1403373.  DAN has helped many of our guests (including ourselves) recoup money for medical expenses and lost dives (from ear infections, etc); unfortunately, we have also seen a few divers need helicopter rides to a decompression chamber.  The thought is that insurance gives you the ability to listen to symptoms which otherwise you might ignore.
