The WAVES Project has been established to provide an opportunity for Veterans with Service related physical and emotional injuries as well as their families to experience scuba diving. SCUBA diving can help the wounded warrior by promoting independence and self-confidence in many ways. The veteran will benefit from becoming an underwater equal to able bodied divers and discover new personal goals and opportunities. They will also enjoy the peace and relaxation achieved by the weightlessness that our silent world provides, reducing their PTSD symptoms. Through reduced external influences, scuba diving allows them to concentrate on less painful recovery and rehabilitation.

To Enroll in the WAVES Project you must complete the WAVES Application  and submit with your VA Rating Letter to the WAVES Project at
