Dive insurance is mandatory on all our dive trips, and not included within your trip price.

Guests must have travel insurance which includes trip cancellation coverage with no exclusions for Acts of God and Force Majeure events. If trips are cancelled due to weather conditions or closure of harbour by Harbour Master there are no refunds.

For diver insurance please make sure that it covers you for the depth of your certification and for dive accident cover including recompression treatment.

We can provide short term DAN insurance at an additional cost.  Please ask at time of booking if you would like this.

Here is a list of travel insurance operators and links to their websites in order to find the right cover for you:

DAN – Divers Alert Network – Dive Accident Insurance, Dive Trip Insurance and Dive Equipment Insurance for Worldwide cover please visit your regional pages.


World Nomads Insurance – Lonely Planets trusted travel insurance providers for diver and travel insurance.

National Park Fees

Park fees are subject to change at any time at the discretion of the relevant authorities.  Please make sure you are aware of all fees prior to making your booking. See individual package for details as Komodo and Raja Ampat have different systems in place.  All park fees must be paid in IDR cash, foreign currencies are not accepted.

Fuel Charges

We will try not to pass any increases in fuel prices on to you but may need to apply a fuel surcharge if there is a significant rise in prices.
