Our mission is to promote Adaptive scuba training and underwater experiences to enhance the quality of life of individuals, with or without disabilities, through the holistic health benefits derived from SCUBA.
To bring the adaptive scuba community together forming strategic partnerships with the dive industry, scuba training agencies, academic institutions and rehabilitation/therapy departments to advanced adaptive scuba education, training, experiences, safety and research.
Introducing any individual, with or without disabilities, to the “gravity free” underwater world--- breaking the forces pinning us to the earth’s surface and entering a beautiful aquatic environment can invoke an exhilarating sense of freedom and awe.
A weightless sanctuary where all of our stresses are left behind-- leaving the hustle and bustle of everyday life and plunging into a silent world free of unrelenting electronic noises. A place to disconnect. A place where you can experience tranquility and unique biodiversity in an environment essentially unchanged since the beginning of time.
In short, scuba can be extraordinarily therapeutic for anybody. Scientific research and countless antidotal experiences underscores the healing power of scuba as a means to enhance one’s self-esteem, independence, confidence, and enjoyment of life. A modality that rehabs a variety of psychological, physical and cognitive disabilities. TSI’s philosophy is to bring such therapeutic powers to all.
