Scuba diving is an equally fun and dangerous sport-leisure activity -- which makes it more exciting. But let’s admit it, though we’re extremely positive not getting hurt during our dives (thanks to our professional dive masters and guides, and the happy hormones: endorphin, dopamine and serotonin -- released when we descend into the beautifully-crafted, multi-colored wonderland ruled by the gilled-beings), we really couldn’t be sure we (and our dive equipment) are already safe from the Claws of Hades. Unfortunate events may still happen (in and out of the water) even how safe and prepared you think you are.
Yes, diving accidents happen.
Unfortunately. According to the Recreational Diving Fatalities Workshop by Richard D. Vann and Michael A. Lang, the leading cause of diving fatalities is attributed to human error in the part of the victim, but misuse of equipment, health problems, and entrapment are also associated to scuba deaths.
No, we’re not asking you to quit scuba diving.
The unfortunate truth above should not discourage you though (besides, quitting scuba diving is as arduous as quitting nicotine and drinking). Instead, it just urges you to be a smarter diver. In the case of a medical emergency, having no insurance may cost you more money (do your homework: research). One trait of being a diver is preparedness -- prove you are a true blue scuba diver by preparing for the unforeseeable.
No, dive insurance is not solely for medical emergencies.
Myth busted. Dive insurance also covers your lost or broken dive equipment and your dive travel emergencies. It just depends on which package you avail.
I’ve never had a dive insurance before. How can I start?
