Scuba Diving

No matter where you go - Maaya Thila in the Maldives or The Blue Hole in Belize, diving is a great way to explore the depths of the ocean. Scuba Diving is covered in your 1Cover Travel Insurance policy.*

You're only covered if you hold an open water diving license or you are diving under licensed instruction.

What's licensed instruction? It means that the person who is instructing you and taking you on the scuba dive is a PADI licensed instructor or any other instructor with an open water licence recognised in Australia

All our overseas travel insurance policies (Plans A, B, C and E) will cover you for scuba diving so get out there and explore.

  • Want something different? Why not try wreck diving where shipwrecks are explored?
  • Did You Know? Scuba stands for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus.
  • Scuba Diving Certifications. Every year there are over one million people who obtain scuba diving certifications worldwide.
  • Vending Machines Are Twice As Likely To Kill You As A Shark. And people are 30 times more likely to die from a coconut hitting them in the head.
  • Is Scuba Diving Dangerous? Scuba diving is not dangerous if safety guidelines are followed.
