The M/V Conception

Please Help Support the Families of Those Lost


On September 2, 2019 a fire aboard the M/V Conception claimed the lives of 34 divers. This terrible tragedy has rocked our dive community.


In the aftermath of this disaster divers have been reaching out to ask how they can help the families who lost loved ones. The outpouring of support has been extraordinary.


In an effort to help these families, Divers Alert Network (DAN) has joined with PADI, SSI, TDI/SDI, NAUI, Scubapro, DUI, the Women Divers Hall of Fame, PSI-PCI, California Diving News and Undercurrent to establish a fund and seek donations from anyone who wishes to contribute.


If you would like to donate, please visit


All donations are fully tax-deductible, and 100% of the money raised will go directly to the families.


Thank you for your support.
