TRAVEL SAFETY | Apr 7, 2020

Boaters are natural problem-solvers trained to plan for worst-case scenarios. Even on our simplest outings, we manage numerous risks. With the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), cruisers and sailors are now managing an entirely new set of risks, many of which carry unknown consequences. While the disruptions this virus will cause remain unpredictable, one thing all our members can rely on is DAN Boater’s commitment to keeping them safe.

Fortunately, we are well equipped for DAN Boater staff to work remotely, and most of our operations continue uninterrupted. Services offered by DAN Boater remain available to all of our members. Although we have suspended the shipment of retail products due to our office closure, we are still taking orders and will ship items as soon as we are able. Our medical and research staff are monitoring the pandemic closely and applying their expertise to identify information and solutions to keep boaters and travelers as safe as possible during this outbreak. You can find information related to the pandemic at

The DAN Boater Emergency Hotline (24/7), Medical Information Line, and Member Services Line are all operating on normal schedules. If you have questions, DAN Boater is here to take your calls.

  • The DAN Boater Emergency Hotline remains in operation 24/7. If you experience an emergency, call the hotline at +1 (919) 667-9111.
  • The DAN Boater Medical Information Line is operational Monday through Friday, 8:00am – 8:00pm ET. If you have a travel-related health question, please call the information line at +1 (919) 490-2011.
  • The DAN Boater Member Support and travel insurance teams are available Monday through Friday, 8:30am – 5:00pm ET. For questions, please call +1 (919) 490-2011 or email

The entire DAN Boater team is committed to providing the full range of services that you have always relied on us to provide, but we need your help. We can only do this because of our members. If it weren’t for your purchase of a DAN Boater membership, there would be no emergency medical hotline, no medics to answer questions and no research to help support boating or travel safety. It's your support that allows us to continue doing the work we care about so much.

From everyone at DAN Boater, we thank you.
