Pirate Spotlight

Robert Burke Shelton

Burke spent 10 years serving our country in the US Army, and deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2003 during a night mission to support ground troops by air, the helicopter he was riding in crashed, breaking is back, leg, ankle, hand...I think you get the picture! Burke is blessed to be able to walk, but needs very low impact activities... he's going to love diving!

Our Mission

Based on camaraderie, compassion, freedom to dive, and the Code of Conduct, Dive Pirates will support, train, equip, and provide dive travel to individuals with disabilities through Classified Scuba Diving.

Our Vision

Dive Pirates will create a community of Disabled Divers that will dive and travel in the mainstream world of Scuba Diving through education and overcoming obstacles.
