Scuba Diving Travel Insurance | Dive Insurance

Scuba Diving Travel Insurance

We have been organising scuba diving holidays since the early nineties and although we do offer the best in scuba diving, we could not say that about the various insurance policies that are out there. Travel Insurance policies generally have diving added in as an afterthought and do not necessarily offer the best service for people on a scuba diving holiday. With that in mind we got together with an underwriter and produced our own policy that truly reflects the needs of today's traveling diver. See below for details on our Scuba Diving Travel Insurance.
