Every year, Dogtag provides Scuba Diving Insurance for hundreds of divers from raw beginners to divers with decades of experience.
With Scuba Diving cover, we don't differentiate in terms of your diving experience, we'd rather do it by the type of diving you'll be doing - basically, we know that you're not likely to be going down to fifty meters on your second day with a brand new shiny log book and we also know that even with twenty years experience your main thing might be shallow or reef diving where you rarely go below twenty meters.
So... which Dogtag Sport level to choose to get the right level of scuba diving insurance? First of all you need to have a think about the depth you'll be diving to. Dogtag Sport level will cover you to dive to 30 meters (we think that's a long way down) although, admittedly, we're not all that well-'ard as divers go. If you want to go down to 50 meters then you'll need to choose Dogtag Extreme.
Enhance Scuba Diving Cover
The Enhanced Scuba upgrade will also provide extra cover for loss of diving days (say, due to storms), compensation if your dive equipment is delayed on your journey and you need to hire kit. There's also extra cover for your precious gear up to £1,000 in total (£250 per item) with Dogtag PRO, or £2,000 (£500 per item) with our MAX cover level. Once you have a quote for Sport, Sport+ or Extreme, you can select the dive cover upgrade and recalculate your quote. Check this HERE.
If you want to cage-dive with sharks, even if it's less than thirty meters, you'll need to choose Sport+. If you're also diving below thirty meters, your Extreme cover will also cover everything that Sport and Sport+ covers so you're covered for cage diving.
Swim with & feed sharks
Here you need to purchase the Enhanced Scuba Dive cover upgrade. You can do this once you get your quote for Sport, Sport+ or Extreme. The Enhanced Scuba upgrade will also provide extra cover for loss of diving days (say, due to storms), compensation if your dive equipment is delayed on your journey and you need to hire kit and extra cover for you precious gear.
