Review for Dive Pirates Foundation, The Woodlands, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My participation with Dive Pirates Foundation both as a volunteer and as a board member has been the most rewarding experience of my life.

I have learned that diving is not just an incredible sport that I love, but that enjoying it while helping others infinitely more fulfilling. I was asked recently, “What does it feel like when you enter the water with classified divers? My response instantaneously poured out of my mouth without thought or hesitation:

The second our fins touch the water, everything goes away except that captured moment. Our minds becomes clear. All of our problems on land disappear. In fact, everything above water becomes nonexistent. And for the next 40-60 minutes, I am privileged to watch and help individuals who on land have limited mobility experience something that is breath taking. They become free from their wheel chairs; free from the restrictions and limitations they face on land. We are all inspired with a renewed spirit for life and everything that can be accomplished.

Simply brilliant.
