The Dive Accident Report Database is an ongoing feature sponsored by Spare Air. We believe that most minor and many major dive accidents that don't result in death are never reported. This can give recreational divers a false sense of safety and hide many diving issues from discussion.
The purpose of this database is to allow divers an anonymous method of reporting any part of a SCUBA diving experience that compromised safety. It is also a resource for study and discussion for anyone interested in dive safety.
Issues we would like reported include bad regulators (that caused a safety issue), BC inflating without warning, O-rings failing at depth, gauges reading incorrectly, buddies going too deep, dive boats leaving without passengers, anything regarding the safety of recreation diving during an actual dive.
