We always recommend that passengers acquire good travel insurance prior to departure. Participation in an expedition cruise is 100% at your own risk. In our travel documentation (specifically our personal information form for scuba diving), all passengers need to sign a liability statement in which they agree that Oceanwide Expeditions and its dive staff are exempt from responsibility for personal injury and property damage, including the loss of items. Oceanwide cannot accept any claims.
A proper travel insurance that also includes coverage for medical evacuation and repatriation costs by helicopter, plane, or ship is obligatory. After the booking process, you will be asked to provide us with the details of your insurance policy.
