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 Adaptive Scuba Diving.

OUR VISION

 The Dive Pirates Foundation will create a community of disabled divers that will dive and travel in the mainstream world of scuba diving through education and overcoming obstacles.

"Traditionally, pirate crews would take care of injured crew members by making them peg legs, hooks, eye patches, etc.

Disabled crew members were not banished from the ship, but were given new tasks that they could perform for a cut of the booty!"

Dive Pirates gets Platinum

We are proud to have been awarded the GuideStar Platinum Participant level.  This demonstrates our ongoing commitment to nonprofit transparency and accountability whilst we focus on providing life changing experiences for our adaptive divers.
