Midwest Aquatics Adaptive Scuba Classes

Midwest Aquatics offers an adaptive diver program for individuals with physical needs. Though this program individuals with physical disabilities can become certified divers. According to Darin Duffin from the aquatics center, “the adaptive program was designed for people that could not meet the physical requirements of the standard certification course. (Being) underwater where we are weightless, can be an energizing experience.” Scuba classes are offered on the 1st and 2nd weekends of each month. Classes include all populations and are not specific for those with disabilities.
