DIVE INSURANCE AND TRAVEL INSURANCE
In the event of unexpected changes in your travel plans we highly recommend: cancellation/interruption insurance, accidental, medical, and baggage insurance.
Each insurance policy is unique and different. Please research and understand the details of the policies your consider. It is important that you understand the coverages your policy offers and any limitations that may exist on claims made. Some policies offer a LiveAboard Rider (insurance) that includes additional specific coverages beyond trip cancellation and interruption that cover scenarios that are unique to liveaboard vacations such as missed LiveAboard departures due to airline delays, mechanical failures of liveaboard boat, inclement weather (in addition to named storms), medical inability to dive and other incidents.
