Have Laptop, will work anywhere!
And we mean anywhere! The Dive Pirates Board, Officers and staff met in Houston to plan and plot 2022, and, well, accommodations were a bit challenging, this is a quick pow-wow in Tyler's deluxe accommodations err... trailer/whatever... hey all we need is a bed and a hot shower, (ok and coffee, and rum ) and we can plan what's next for our pirates in training!
Executive Decisions
When our new president Tyler Brandes needed to stand up straight he would go out to the lanai/patio area, he almost fit in the executive lounge chair and table provided :-)
All funning aside, we thank all of our board members for taking the time to meet and plan our next adventures and more.

Dive Pirates In Action: June 2021
Despite COVID-19, the closing of the Caymans to travel, the inability to be in person for the ball and other fundraisers, and so much more, we faced and accomplished our most challenging effort to date, and we want to share it with you. 
Living Fearlessly...
Jared Davis is a person with quadriplegia from the neck down, a state he has been in for 15 years following a rollover car accident. Working with Waterdogs Scuba and Safety, LLC in Clarksville, TN, his dive team worked up a system of full-face masks with communications, how to transport him in and out of the water using a backboard, and prepared him for the Key Largo, Florida Dive Pirates trip. After the second day on the trip, Jared became a certified adaptive open water diver; supported by a team of volunteers, a dive operator willing to accept the challenge, and a foundation backed by people like you supporting the mission of celebrating life after injury. 
Because of you our recipients like Jared receive and train in their own gear, fitted to them, for a lifetime of exploring the world as an adaptive diver or adaptive diver buddy. Thank you for your continued support seeing opportunities, not disabilities!
