DAN Link to Espacio Profundo: the Best of Two Worlds

From Dan Leigh, DAN

Espacio Profundo, the Mexican dive magazine, has joined in a partnership
with DAN's Alert Diver to provide DAN members residing in Latin America a combination of these two great publications.

Previously, DAN Members in Latin America only had the option to receive the
Alert Diver magazine in English. To better benefit Spanish-speaking members,
DAN sought a way to provide the Alert Diver content in their own language.

As of January 2006, Espacio Profundo becomes the "official magazine of
Divers Alert Network in Latin America." It includes additional pages from
DAN and dive safety information from DAN's award-winning magazine, Alert
Diver. This partnership will provide those members the latest in Alert Diver
feature articles in Spanish, and the beautiful photography and captivating
stories found in Espacio Profundo.

For those members in the affected regions who prefer to read Alert Diver in
English, DAN has given them the ability to access Alert Diver online at no
additional charge.

Also as of January 2006, DAN Business Members in Spanish-speaking Latin
America started receiving both the Alert Diver in English and the new
version of Espacio Profundo in Spanish. Since Business Members often deal
with English-speaking customers who also read Alert Diver, it will benefit
them to have both copies.

Espacio Profundo has also agreed to help DAN and dive safety grow in Latin
America by giving their several thousand subscribers in Latin America the
opportunity to convert to DAN membership. And when they convert, they have
the option to choose DAN's worldwide dive insurance.

DAN Members in Brazil will continue to receive the printed English version
of Alert Diver. Eventually, DAN hopes to provide a Portuguese-language
diving publication to Brazilian-based members.
