Two boats left the dock, one came back...
Saw the boats off this morning, only to have one come back in about 30 minutes... its been a little choppy but all in all the weather has been good and our divers are getting a great taste of what it means to be an adaptive diver.
Before we launched...
It was great to see this... it always is, our recipients just talking about their experiences... divers, life, you name it.
Kamron was a diver before his accident, and dive pirates helped him rethink how to do this as an adaptive.

Jared is a diver now, making two dives a morning for the past three days... both of these guys exude that spirit you can't create, you just celebrate!
Retired Sgt. Derrick McMillon, US Army
Enjoyed visiting with Derrick and Dianna McMillon today, he had two great dives today and enjoyed seeing Christ of the Abyss. (see the video below) From our visit today:
"Many people say 'thank you for your service', Dive Pirates does more than say it, the do it, this is meaningful."
Derrick was a diver while in the service, and he loves it as an adaptive diver, enjoying the peace, freedom from pain and instant comradery with all of the pirates on the trip.
Retired Cpl. James Roos, USMC

Ok, I'm just going to say it, Jim and Jo Ann are just precious, and their instructor from Denver Divers Matt Horton is amazing, not only supporting them but being a go-to guy on the boat. James is a Vietnam vet who found the joy and empowerment of adaptive sports in snow skiing and has lived a life of gratitude knowing the amputation of his leg was a change in his life, not a show stopper.
