  4. For those registered on the Maritime Heritage Trail Dive this Saturday (tomorrow), just a quick update.

    The dive is still scheduled to happen, although the water will NOT be flat. Expecting 2 to 3 foot seas. If you are not comfortable diving in or riding on a boat in those conditions, that is your call. Just let us know if you will not be attending.

    Red Algae Update: Again, the boat dive will happen. The last update (you can see this here: http://www.myfwc.com/research/redtide/statewide/) shows that the area we are diving is not yet affected by the Red Algae, picture here.

  5. Unfortunately, we did not receive the VA Grant for Adaptive Sports this year. That means we're in desperate need of sponsors for our veterans to make use of SCUBA Diving as a recreational therapy. We will try again next year, but our military veterans need you. This year-long program is only $3,000 per veteran. If you can, or you know of someone who can, sponsor a veteran; please help. Being disconnected from service is a mental hardship affecting many veterans. This helps reintegrate them into civilian society and removes many of the environmental pressures. The Discover SCUBA activities are great, but they are a one day activity. What the Sponsor-a-Veteran program does is get them involved all year with a therapeutic activity that does not involve hospitals are treatment centers. What is more is that it sets them up to continue the activity after their year program is done.

    SCUBA Diving not only is great therapy for physical ailments and injuries, it is an ideal therapy for emotional and mental concerns like Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Please help our veterans cope with the reintegration into civilian life with the help of healing ocean waters and nature. Please help by sponsoring, or sharing with your network of family and friends the need for this support.  Do you know a veteran that you would like to sponsor specifically? We do allow directed donations, so you can earmark your donation to go to a specific veteran. The only limitation is that this program is conducted in the Fort Lauderdale, FL area. We will be expanding to other areas down the road, but right now, it is location specific.

    Donate Here.   OR   Sponsor the Program Here.
