Because most dive sites in Galapagos have currents, surge and offer not the easiest of diving conditions, it is a good idea to obtain dive insurance for your Galapagos diving adventure.  Emergency medical evacuation and use of a hyperbaric chamber can cost tens of thousands of dollars.  We strongly recommend you be safe and obtain the right insurance program for your diving trip.


• Island-based Diving Trips: Dive insurance is optional, but highly recommended.



• Liveaboard Diving Trips: Dive insurance is obligatory for all.


We offer Diving Insurance through Dive Assure, which offers the best diving accident and dive-travel coverage through its relationship with Duke, including the Diamond and the DDM Package.   You can choose between their 3 coverage programs:
