Diving Excursion Risks

On any liveaboard trip or a cruise of any kind, we are always at the whim of Mother Ocean. All of our ships are equipped with the latest in satellite technology, full time data links, internet at sea and marine radios. Further more, we have taken extra safety precautions to introduce more safety systems such as:

  • Depth detector
  • Collision alarm
  • Nautilus LifeLine

We can’t control the weather but we can monitor the forecasts very carefully and our shoreside management team is in constant contact with our vessels and available 24/7 in case of emergencies.

We need you to be aware that there is always a risk of adverse weather, mechanical breakdown, errors or mistakes made by our crew, medical evacuations or other interruptions to your trip that are beyond our control.

Diving with marine animals entails risk. This is not Disneyland! Scuba divers risk embolism, decompression sickness, dehydration or other medical issues. Guests and crew alike are susceptible to accidents, tripping and falling, sprains or broken bones, heart attacks, stroke or medical conditions such as appendicitis, pancreatitis, diabetic complications, severe infections, abcesses or other emergency conditions.

We require that all of our guests have dive insurance that covers emergency care. We highly recommend travel insurance that covers evacuation flights. We make it really easy to purchase insurance online or at our dive centers in Bali and Komodo.

Costs of medical evacuation from remote areas or decompression chambers are significantly high. You will have to arrange payment up front for these costs before any flight or treatment if you don’t have insurance coverage.

A basic liability release and waiver requires your acceptance, agreement and signature when you visit our dive centers before departing with the liveaboard.

We wish you an amazing and completely uneventful trip with smooth seas and excellent diving.
