Singer Island 2022
Applications are now open!
Last August Diving with Heroes visited Singer Island/West Palm Beach for the first time. It was amazing. From diving with Pura Vida Divers up and down the coast to experiencing Blue Heron Bridge; seeing sharks and Goliath grouper and sea turtles galore; drifting over the wreck trail and floating 3 miles with the Gulf Stream in the dark of night on our first blackwater night dive...Florida offered us more than we ever could have hoped for. That's why we are going back!
This year join DWH on Singer Island Saturday, October 1, through Saturday, October 8. In addition to all the fun stuff we did last year, we will also be offering the SDI Rescue Diver course and DAN's Diving First Aid Pro course. The trip includes: course materials and certification, seven nights' accommodation, five days of diving, and breakfast and supper each day (alcohol is not included).
Be AOW and EANx certified;
Provide their own equipment (or pay for their rentals); and
Secure their own transportation to South Florida (arrival by 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 1).
Returning alumni and non-beneficiary participants will be asked to pay a $500 participation fee.
Applications will be accepted for this fall excursion now through Friday, July 29. To apply, please send the following to DWH's Executive Director Jill Hottel:
