In August of this year, a group of veterans touched down on balmy Bonaire: their mission to absorb the camaraderie, excitement, and therapy of scuba diving. Wounded in their time of service, these men and women joined the Handicapped Scuba Diving Alliance (HSDA) of New Jersey for a weeklong adventure in one of scuba diving’s crown jewels: an aquatic paradise disconnected from the noise and grind of contemporary life. Bonded by a common goal, they and their allies in the HSDA sought solace and fellowship with themselves, and with their generous hosts; and they returned home forever changed by the experience.
Returning to Washington DC early next year is the DC Dive Show: a weekend celebration of all things aquatic. Slated for February 22 and 23, the convention offers a wide range of activities, events, and displays that spark the imagination and sate that hunger for the sea.
The world of scuba diving is inviting and expansive: while enveloped within the blue, scuba divers enjoy a realm unlike any other: a zone of serenity and calm that sweeps away worries and emboldens its practitioners. For disabled divers, adaptive divers, this world opens avenues previously unavailable: while under the waves, adaptive divers experience the freedom of weightlessness, and a heightened determination augmented by supportive buddies. Managing adaptive diving programs is no small feat, and requires students and instructors to go beyond their limitations. As scuba diving has evolved over the decades, training agencies, dive centers, non-profits, and individuals have joined together for this noble mission. Such is Diveheart: one of the most prolific adaptive diving organizations since 2001.

Scheduled for Saturday, February 22, 2020 at 2pm EST, the exploratory showcase will feature two of scuba diving’s most prolific polar explorers, who have explored the region for many years: Jill Heinerth, who was the first diver to cave dive within an iceberg; and Amos Nachoum, the first to photograph polar bears from underwater.
