Alert Diver

Alert Diver is the dive industry’s leading publication. Featuring DAN’s core content of dive safety, research, education and medical information, each issue is a must-read reference, archived and shared by passionate scuba enthusiasts. In addition, Alert Diver showcases fascinating dive destinations and marine environmental topics through images from the world’s greatest underwater photographers and stories from the most experienced and eloquent dive journalists in the business.

DEPTH & Alert Diver Lite

What to expect from the first issue?

They go global for the most beautiful pictures and the most dramatic unexplored destinations in our oceans from our most iconic divers, writers, photographers, videographers and conservationists.

They kick off with the Indian Ocean - the great International Whale Sanctuary where the whales follow the great plankton upwelling and krill migration from the Southern Ocean and come to give birth in its quiet warm protected waters. They explore the ocean off the East Coast of Africa, where we see the massive shoals of sardines following this seasonal upwelling, relentlessly pursued by the incredible congregation of voracious predators, sharks, dolphins, whales and sea birds, all feasting on the annual banquet.

DEPTH plans to take you on a great global undersea interactive digital adventure.

DAN & DEPTH Collaboration

Douglas Smith from DEPTH and Morné Christou, the CEO of DAN Southern Africa, were meant to connect. After that, the plan was to reboot the Alert Diver Lite magazine and collaborate with DEPTH magazine.

The collaboration sees the return of the Alert Diver Lite magazine as part of the DEPTH magazine. In many ways, this collaboration represents the best of the dive industry in one publication. Morné believes that this partnership will benefit the general diving community and prove to DAN members that we are always looking at new ways to promote dive safety in a fun and enjoyable way.

As part of the collaboration, the DEPTH and the Alert Diver magazine will be made available to DAN members at no charge and will add to the benefits of being an active member.
