The Dive Safety Course or Divers Alert Network (DAN) is a non-profit organization devoted to assisting divers in need. The DAN Research department conducts significant medical research on recreational scuba diving safety. Supported by donations, grants, and membership dues, DAN’s studies are revealing important information that will benefit the entire diving community and improve Recreational diving safety worldwide.

If you ever go for scuba diving to a remote location you could probably expect the medical help to be either non existent or inadequate. With the Dive Safety Course training and membership you can feel at ease knowing that your membership will cover all costs of transportation and medical help which is just a phone call away.

We take scuba diving very seriously and carry emergency oxygen, medic first aid kits and everyone on the boats are trained in Emergency First Response. We also offer short term insurance polices for scuba diving in Kota Kinabalu, so please contact us immediately to get yourself insured.

DAN Asia Pacific


Diverse Borneo is proud to support DAN Asia-Pacific (DAN AP). The Divers Alert Network (DAN) is a global network of not-for-profit, member-based, Dive Safety organisations working for the safety of all divers through education, research and training.

DAN AP provides Worldwide Emergency Evacuation Coverage and optional Dive Injury (Treatment) Insurance Services for Members. In addition the organisation is responsible for funding and/or manning 24-hour diving emergency hotlines throughout the Asia-Pacific.

Anytime anyplace just give DAN AP a call and they will help to ensure that the best medical advise is provided to you at all times no matter where you are. If needed they will provide a privately charted air flight just for you which if you have taken out an insurance policy, this service would be completely free, however for the unlucky ones one dive trip could cost well into the US$100,000’s and if medical help was provided too late the diving conditions could become worse and even terminal.
