Back in 2014, we got a call from a manager of one of the largest liveaboard operators in the industry who told us a heartbreaking story. A young couple, both avid divers, had just gotten married and invested all their savings towards a diving honeymoon aboard one of their liveaboards. Unfortunately, their flight from Boston was delayed due to bad weather and missed the boat’s departure from Miami by half a day. The boat’s captain waited for them as long as he could but eventually had to sail. There was no way for the newlywed couple to reach the boat and they lost out on their entire trip payment… No travel insurance company would cover such a scenario (and to this day, only ours does). We helped as much as we could at the time, but also promised to create a specialty insurance product that would cover a scenario like this and many other scenarios specific to diving that are not generally covered by regular travel insurance. This is how our ‘Liveaboard Rider’ was born Available only to DiveAssure members.
