If you’re a diver and don’t have dive accident or travel insurance, don’t kid yourself thinking nothing is ever going to happen. The one time something does happen (and hopefully it never will) will be when you are going to really hope you have it, especially if you do multiple dive trips in a year! Either DAN or DiveAssure both offer plenty of choices depending on your needs and type of diving you like to do. Get all the info needed to sign-up for DAN or DiveAssure here!

Upcoming Vacation Trips


British Columbia-Nanaimo & Campbell River-June 22-30, 2019


warbonnet in canadaDiving British Columbia is AWESOME and it has some of the best cold water diving you will find. This is CIDA’s 7th trip back to Vancouver Island, B.C. and it sure will NOT be the last! Why is diving Vancouver Island so HOT? Because of wolf eels, wrecks, deep vertical walls, large metridums, ton’s of small inveterate life, giant pacific octopus, lot’s of colorful fish and much more.
