DAN Insurance

DAN is Divers Alert Network, the diving industry’s largest association dedicated to scuba diving safety. DAN provides emergency assistance, medical information resources, educational opportunities and more. One of DAN’s best-known resources is the 24-hour DAN Emergency Hotline, which stands ready every hour of the day to help scuba divers in need. DAN’s response time and ability to deal with scuba diving incidents far surpasses those of alternative insurnace providers and it is for this reason that Nomad and Lutwala request that all passengers on our dive tours hold a DAN diving travel insurance policy.

DAN offers three different dive accident insurance plans to cover medical costs related to a diving accident; there are no mileage restrictions when you use your dive accident or injury coverage. These plans will cover you if you are diving locally or internationally.
