Specialist Shark Cage Diving Insurance

Shark cage diving offers you the chance to get up close and personal to some of the ocean’s most impressive predators.

Popular sites for shark cage diving are in South Africa, Australia and the Americas as sharks such as the great white are commonly found in the southern hemisphere’s tropical or temperate waters.

Our Sports Travel Insurance  is perfect for divers as standard travel insurance policies often exclude shark cage diving.

The policy mixes normal travel insurance – covering things such as delays, lost baggage and cancellation – with medical expenses and repatriation cover if you’re involved in an incident involving your sport.
