As a 63-year-old dive master I have been involved with Diveheart for the past several years. I am also past president of the American Association of Diving Program Administrators.(ADPA) This group is composed of dive safety officers from most of the public aquariums and marine parks in North America. in addition to working with members of our group,Diveheart has enabled many other organizations and nonprofits to help folks with disabilities all over the planet.I also was personally involved in facilitating the 1st blind and deaf diver in history on a dive trip in Cozumel 2 years ago. Spending a week with a diveheart team introducing divers with disabilities to the beauty , serenity, and adventure of diving was one of the high points in my 45 year diving career. You cannot overestimate the value of these experiences to the disabled divers or the divers fortunate enough to work with them. It was truly one of the most wonderful experiences of my life. If you love to dive, and use your skills for the good of others–volunteer with Diveheart. it can and will change your life.
