INSURANCE: Most divers-in-the-know use Divers Alert Network Dive Accident Insurance. We also strongly encourage purchasing DAN Travel Insurance. They offer competitive rates, and your money goes to a fantastic program. DAN has helped many of our guests (including ourselves) recoup money for medical expenses and lost dives from even minor maladies; unfortunately, we have also seen a few divers need helicopter rides to a decompression chamber. Insurance gives you the ability to listen to symptoms which otherwise you might ignore.
