Operation Aquatic Freedom

Operation Aquatic Freedom is a registered 501(c)(3) national public charitable foundation by Veterans for Veterans. Repaying those whom have selflessly sacrificed so much, we introduce disabled American Veterans to a therapeutic, and relaxing underwater world via SCUBA diving. We then provide our heroes with a new mission and purpose of rebuilding our country’s coral reefs one polyp at a time.

We heal wounded veterans
through scuba diving

All professional dive certifications, proof of insurance, and medical licenses are on file and verifiable free online via such agencies as: Divers Alert Network, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors, the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians, and the State of Florida Department of Health Medical Quality Assurance Board.
