Monterey Bay Veterans and Degnan’s Divers have collaborated to create the Freedom Dive Program for challenged divers. We believe it to be the most comprehensive program of its type in the world. We are now waiting for you to literally take the plunge and fulfill your dreams of underwater adventure.
Some of the divers in Frank Degnan’s classes, and many challenged recreational divers, for whom diving from shore or utilizing standard dive boat operations would be difficult or impossible, have been in need of a method to safely and comfortably dive.
Monterey Bay Veterans has been working on the solution. The Dive Boat Freedom has completed its refurbishment, repairs and customization. It is now ready to assist student and certified challenged divers to participate in some of the best diving in the world. The key component, the Lift to Freedom submersible dive platform, allows safe and comfortable deployment and retrieval of divers regardless of their disability challenge.
