After the incredible success of our first ever scuba event in 2018, we’re thrilled to offer a full 8 day scuba course this April!
The RAIDaptive Course is designed to teach individuals living with a disability to become certified divers with the goal of using certified RAIDaptive Dive Buddies to compensate for those skills that they cannot independently perform. The student will be certified according to the following designations:
- Designation 1 (D1) – The student must be able to perform all skills independently with the exception of Entries and Exits
- Designation 2 (D2)– The student must be able to perform all skills independently with the exception of Entries, Exits, Emergency Ascents, Maintaining Positive Buoyancy at the surface by oral inflation of the BCD
- Designation 3 (D3) – The student must be able to breathe continuously and monitor gas supply. The student will require assistance with all other aspects of diving.
To become a certified RAIDaptive Open Water diver, the participant’s need to have basic swimming skills, be comfortable in the water, and should be in good overall health, have a mature attitude, sound judgment and self-discipline to follow the guidelines that they will be taught for safe diving.
