AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME

The power of the pool resonates in Diveheart training and Diveheart Scuba Experience (DSE) programs. One pool session can very quickly change the lives of children, adults or veterans with disabilities as they escape the confines of gravity, many for the first time ever. With the help of their highly trained Diveheart adaptive dive team, participants can immediately begin reaping the benefits of zero gravity and scuba therapy. These benefits include self-confidence, independence and improved self-esteem that will last a lifetime.
