Useful Information

The DAN-SA temporary membership benefit was intended for dive charters seeking something to cover their guests as well as persons going on diving vacations at short notice and not yet convinced of the need for an annual DAN-SA membership package. The maximum cover is restricted to R300 000 and this may indeed not be enough for a diver to be evacuated, treated and returned home in many of the popular diving locations around the world. however, this amount is usually sufficient for someone to be evacuated and treated within Southern Africa, where we can manage the resources and service providers more directly. 

This package is premised on the basis that the excursion membership package is available for diving in areas where there are at least suitable medical facilities, including a recompression chamber facility, or at least where these can be reached realistically. It is not suitable for areas where evacuation is almost impossible and there are no recompression facilities. Please also note that any evacuation to South Africa or the country of residence within Southern Africa implies that all cover ceases on arrival in the country of residence.

These are the countries that fall under the DAN-SA region: South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Angola, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Kenya, Zaire, Madagascar, Comores, Seychelles and Mauritius.

Important Note
Temporary Dive Cover

Temporary dive cover can only be taken for five days or consecutive five days at a time and is applicable to worldwide diving. This is only available to persons diving outside of their country of residence. This includes South Africans diving outside of South Africa and visitors diving in the Southern African region.

Free-divers & Spear Fisherman

Freedivers and spear fisherman have access to the temporary dive cover benefits. This is limited to recreational freedivers and spear fisherman and  not competitive freedivers or spear fisherman.

Free-divers participating in competitions will need to join as Master members and be registered with Pure Apnea or SAFF. In addition, an emergency plan for freedivers engaging in a competition needs to be submitted to the DAN office for each such event by the Pure Apnea or SAFF approved organisers.

Spear Fisherman
Avoid hyperventilation prior to diving (i.e., defined as taking more than 4 deep breaths prior to diving), avoid bottom times in excess of 90 seconds, avoid depths in excess of 25 meters, never dive alone, never attach speared or wounded fish to your body via a stinger or similar device, where possible & inform DAN of any spearfishing trips prior to departure. 

Spear-fishermen participating in competitions will need to join as Master members and be registered with SAUFF. In addition, an emergency plan for spear-fishermen engaging in a competition needs to be submitted to the DAN office for each such event by the SAUFF approved organisers.
