Less than one percent of the world's population has tried scuba diving. Less than one percent of the diving community works with people with disabilities. A very small percentage of that adaptive dive community works with individuals with virtually any disability and only one organization does all of the above and promotes and facilitates adaptive scuba, the business of adaptive scuba and ground-breaking research surrounding scuba therapy, around the world. That organization is Diveheart.
