"We recommend DAN Membership to our clients travelling to dive destinations throughout the South Pacific and beyond. As DAN Members, our clients travel with the reassurance of knowing if they encounter a diving related incident while travelling, they will receive advice and assistance from an Organisation whose existence is for Divers and has an understanding of the associated risks, medical symptoms and the importance of timely evacuation and medical treatment." - Mike Budden, Dive Fish Snow Travel

Accident Reporting & Research

As part of its mission to improve dive safety DAN collects and reports on diving incidents, injuries and fatalities.

In addition, DAN is the industry leader in diving physiology research and is one of the major organisations in the world that conducts significant medical research on recreational scuba diving safety.

DAN's studies are revealing important information that will benefit the entire diving community and improve recreational diving safety worldwide. Without DAN, many important questions about recreational diving safety would not only remain unchallenged, but unanswered.

Our research projects to date have included the effects of flying after diving, ageing and its effect on dive health, as well as diving with diabetes.
