Your way to support DAN's mission of providing emergency medical assistance and promoting dive safety. It doesn't include an insurance cover. Benefits include medical advice & specialist referrals, participation in diving safety seminars & conferences, and much more.
DAN is the first and largest organisation promoting diving safety, with an international network of 180+ dive doctors assisting over 400,000 members worldwide.
This means a solid, experienced organisation, backing you in all your dive explorations.
In the early 80' DAN was the first to design specific insurance covers for diving activities.
Today, our organisation has an unparalleled experience in the field, and is able, through its insurance subsidiaries, to manage claims efficiently thanks to a competent, caring team, whilst abiding to industry laws and regulations.
Flying after diving guidelines, diving with diabetes, PFO-related issues, advancements in decompression algorithms, and much more: DAN research continues to act as an important benchmark for the scientific and diving communities.
That's not all: you can actively contribute to all this, donating your dive profile and data, in a fascinating citizen science project.
What does diving safety mean? In our vision, it is trying to make any dive accident and injury free. This includes developing programs addressed to a large spectrum of stakeholders, from dive professionals to hyperbaric chambers.
DAN also supports and promotes safety campaigns addressing specific needs- from air quality to dehydration - with the aim of reducing preventable accidents.
The best advert is the one made by divers themselves. Talk to your local dive community and listen to the stories of cases managed by DAN. Or read comments online about fellow divers assisted by our network. Don't forget the wealth of safety-related, timely information all members enjoy through the Alert Diver magazine and at live events, conferences and seminars.
Inspired by the past, projected into the future. We look forward to working with Members, diving organisations, and the community, to keep making diving safer in the next 40 years.
The Ocean has the capacity to absorb CO2 from the environment. When excess CO2 dissolves in seawater, it causes an acidity increase. This is known as Ocean Acidification and represents a major risk to marine ecosystems. To raise awareness about this crucial issue, two DAN Europe Ambassadors are travelling across Europe and surrounding territories on an electric vehicle, recharging it only with renewable energy. Join us along the way as we meet stakeholders and the whole diving community, to boost the change we all need.
We’ve been providing essential services to the diving community for 40 years now. From recreational, to OC technical, to CCR diving, all kind of divers can feel confident that DAN will be on their side, when they need it the most.
