Jim Elliott and Diveheart do amazing work. I have worked with Jim behind the scenes on a volunteer basis, and I have known Jim personally for over 35 years. Diveheart makes a powerful, positive difference in so many lives. Please support them in their mission.
I have personally had the pleasure of being a volunteer for Diveheart. The experience is incredible and life changing.
This organization is ran by a fantastic group of people that continues to set the standard for adaptive diving.
I highly encourage anyone to be apart of Diveheart in any way possible!
Diveheart is just a wonderful organization staffed by wonderful caring people. I first noticed an article in the paper, and decided to check out the organization. I was blown away first by the founder and president Jim. I spoke with him for awhile on the phone and decided to pursue it further. I am so glad I did. What I have come to find is a caring, well run, amazing resource for almost any challenged person. From the first event I attended as deck help, until the most current event where I am now an adaptive dive buddy, I continue to be blown away by the organization. The people we serve love the events. One must just come out to an event and witness it for oneself to truly appreciate what Diveheart is and can do.

Diveheart is the greatest organization I have been associated with over the years. Jim and his staff have opened the doors to people that may have been in the past closed. From instructor to participant the opportunity for new adventures is around the corner. I have been involved for the past five years and has changed my life. The word NO is not in the vocabulary for diveheart. The answer is what I can I do next to improve in skills and enjoy diving. There are always tears of joy and many smiles on every trip. There are no limitations to set a new goal or to dream a new dream. Lt. Michael P. Burroughs Retired , Advanced Adaptive Dive Buddy
Diveheart gets five stars as a charity. The organization is volunteer driven in its mission to provide people around the world with disabilities with therapeutic, life-changing scuba experiences. Even the president and CEO is a volunteer! To see their remarkable story and results, go to www.diveheart.org.
What a fantastic organization. As an avid scuba diver it is wonderful to see an organization that can bring the same passion and excitement about this great sport to those who would never have been able to. It is my honor and privilege to help whenever I can
It's lovely to see and participate in an org that helps people who otherwise would never think of scuba diving!
I've been volunteering with Diveheart as a adaptive dive buddy for the past two years. This organization has brought so much joy and freedom to both the adaptive divers and the volunteers. I'm always looking forward to the next Diveheart event!
After several years of being a diver and dive instructor, I had the opportunity to meet Jim, train with, and join Diveheart on a trip to Cozumel in 2013. I cannot sufficiently express the extent of how refreshing, and inspiring the experience was for me. The most impressive point for me is one of the most basic fundamentals of Diveheart. That point is to simply redirect attention and emphasis that individuals, participants, and families hear every day, about the limitations or measures of disability, and instead encouraging the functional, recreational, and adventurous sides of peoples lives. The simple shift of perspective is what truly distinguishes Diveheart.
