It is recommended that you get diving insurance, because, even though scuba diving is considered a safe activity, in the unfortunate event of a diving accident, insurance payouts can run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. Medical treatment in some destinations, and specifically diving related medical treatment, or medical evacuation, can be very expensive. An uninsured person will need to pay out of pocket, sometimes upfront, and that could be a problem for most.
Courtesy of The Life Aquatic, SSI and DiveAssure, all our SSI Try Scuba, Scuba Diver, and Open Water Diver course students are now covered under the DiveAssure StartDive Plan. This plan includes coverage for treatment of decompression sickness throughout your Entry Level diving training FREE OF CHARGE.
