Recreational scuba diving is unique, it takes you to some of the most remote and pristine places on the planet. It also has a physiological effect on your body that requires specialist treatment in emergency wards and/or a hyperbaric facility if it goes wrong.
These two factors equal a potential for financial ruin in the event your best laid plans don't work out, an evacuation from a remote location and the following treatment utilizing diving Drs, Hyperbaric chambers and follow up treatment prior to flying home can potentially run into hundreds of thousands of dollars. With facilities often requiring a guarantee of payment especially in privately owned facilities, Dive Assist has partnerships with many hyperbaric facilities worldwide, access to diving Dr's that can advise on treatment protocol and over 25 years of experience.
