Dive Pirates derives its name, philosophy and pirate code from the combination of diving adventure and the romance of the Caribbean, especially the panache of pirates. 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 and be useful to the rest of the crew. They were also given a pre-determined cut of the booty in exchange for their contribution.
Dive Pirates continues that spirit by bringing the Adaptive Scuba Divers along with the rest of the crew and cutting them in on the priceless booty of scuba diving in the Caribbean.
