Depth Limits

No Depth Limits- There are no depth limits on IDEC! We simply ask that you follow your associations guidelines. If you want to dive deeper than 130 metres a full dive profile and proposed safety and support measures must be submitted to underwriters for agreement.

We don't just apply your Diver Certification depth limit in any claim; in fact we wouldn't consider declining a claim on breach of depth limits unless it was a pre-planned and deliberate breach and directly caused the accident.

EXPERIENCE COUNTS as much as certification. We always consider your logged dives as well as your certification records before coming to the right claims decision. In fact, in over 30 years, we have never declined an IDEC claim because a diver breached their depth limit.

Please see below for a list of scuba dive insurance entitlements should the worst happen:

  • Death Benefit £10,000
  • Loss of one limb £5,000
  • Loss of two limbs £10,000
  • Loss of one eye £5,000
  • Loss of both eyes £10,000
  • Maximum for loss of limbs and loss of eyesight £10,000
  • Permanent Total disability £10,000

As standard there is no Excess on IDEC.
