Do you have a schedule of dates for classes?
We do not have any set dates at this moment. We prefer to work with our Veteran and Dive Buddy teams to find a date that accommodates them.
What is the minimum age for Dive Buddies
Yes, they must be 12 years old and they can only dive with a Guardian after completing the certification per scuba safety guidelines.
Is a Dive Buddy mandatory?
No, a Veteran can enroll in the program by their self, but we recommend a dive buddy to help encourage the Veteran or First Responder out of self isolation and interacting with others.
