I was surfing and was bitten by a shark in Tortuga Bay, Galapagos Is. I was able to walk to the medical center in nearby Puerto Ayora, where I received emergency medical treatment from Dr. Idrovo. The treatment consisted of cleaning the wound, local anesthetic and ten stitches. A course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories/ pain-killers was prescribed. A follow of check 24 hours later (today) revealed no infection. I am able to provide photos of the injury and treatment.

As Australia’s and New Zealand’s hard border closures continue, we’ve decided to pause sales from 1 April 2021 for Australian and New Zealand residents only. We will be taking the opportunity to update our travel insurance for travellers. We plan to be back in the market ready for when the Australian and New Zealand borders are fully open.
