LifeWaters has a unique perspective on disabilities. They put the primary focus on what I “can” do, not what I can’t do. They evaluated me appropriately, designed a program to become open water certified, and pushed me to achieve that goal. LifeWaters is a culture and a family. Everyone genuinely cares about everyone. For any individual with a disability who is wondering, “I wonder if I can do that?” the answer is very simple. Reach out to LifeWaters and ask.

LifeWaters greatest gift is giving. We work as a team learning about each other’s abilities and weaknesses and letting community and the ocean heal whatever is the burde underwater world. It's about the bonds, friendships, and teamwork. It’s about remembering that we need each other and can be healed by nature and the community around us.

I cannot thank this group of professionals enough. No words describe how much freedom there is below the waves and swimming wherever I want to go. Free for an hour from my wheeled prison.
