We hope you get the “SCUBA bug” and choose to pursue training to become a certified SCUBA diver!  The members of the Adapt-Able Team would be happy to answer questions you might have and provide some guidance on your journey.  SCUBA certification does come with a price tag; but the good news is there are lots of organizations out there that provide financial assistance to Adaptive athletes to help them achieve their goals.  Below is a list of such organizations and their email addresses that will hopefully be a helpful resource for you. If you know of any other similar resources, please let one of the Adapt-Able Team members know so we can add it to our growing resource list.
