While we all hope it never happens, sometimes things go wrong. Even the most safety conscious diver can find themselves needing medical assistance.
In general, travel insurance may not offer the cover you require. Therefore it’s important to purchase a policy tailored to a divers needs — after all, chamber or evacuations are extremely expensive and could cripple you financially.
It is the responsibility of each individual to have suitable insurance to cover their holiday activities. Oonas Dive Club does not provide insurance cover for clients. For this purpose, you will be required to sign a liability release stating that you are aware and accept it is your responsibility to have suitable cover for diving.
