"No matter how careful divers are, there is always a risk of decompression illness. The local hospital in our remote Magical Munda paradise is not fully equipped to deal with DCI and being evacuated by air at least as far as Honiara, where there is a volunteer-run recompression chamber, can be expensive! For your peace of mind and ours, we cannot recommend strongly enough that you have insurance which specifically covers you for diving and for air evacuation in the event of an emergency. Our requirement is that divers take out Divers Alert Network membership and insurance, or check their travel policy very carefully. Dive Munda is a proud Super Supporter of DAN Asia-Pacific and we cannot run our dive business safely and effectively in this remote location without DAN Asia-Pacific as our partner." Belinda Botha, Operations Director & SSI IT, Dive Munda
