"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

DAN Asia-Pacific Financials

DAN Asia-Pacific operates as a not-for-profit organisation and is subject to an annual audit by independent auditors.

The 2013 /2014 financial year saw growth in all areas.

Gross income increased by 7% comprising of an increase in Membership, now with a total of 10,561 members, which is an increase of 602 members from the 2012-13 financial year. Interest income was also higher due to better rates of interest on invested amounts.

The operating surplus of $100,221 has decreased slightly due to significant increases in insurance, payroll, accounting fees, freight and overseas travel costs.

Net assets have increased by 0.38% to $2,166,859. This is not as high as expected due to a decrease of $20K in the DAN AP Office building re-evaluation and there was also the removal of a $20K Motor Vehicle from the asset pool. Another temporary grant had been provided by DAN America.
