Divers with Disabilities Try Scuba Experience

Ever since you can remember, you’ve wanted to try scuba diving, right?

Maybe you watched a cool movie on television that had scuba divers in it or maybe one of your friends just returned from a trip to the “Islands” and dove with dolphin, turtles and other neat critters.

Craig Hospital and A-1 Scuba & Travel Aquatics Center have created a FREE try scuba experience specifically for the disabled. Our instructors have specialized training from the Handicapped Scuba Association and are experienced in helping you discover the wonder of the underwater world. We have successfully introduced scuba diving to many individuals with disabilities to include Spinal cord Injury, Cerebral Palsy, Blindness, Brain Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Amputee and others.
