Pirate Spotlight

Paul Rauner

Paul has lost the use of his legs from a progressive neurological disease, but that did not stop him from learning to dive at Husker Divers in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska. He was fearless during our trip in 2010 while diving the walls of Cayman Brac or inside the halls of the MV Keith Tibbetts wreck.

Our Mission

Based on camaraderie, compassion, freedom to dive, and the Code of Conduct, Dive Pirates will support, train, equip, and provide dive travel to individuals with disabilities through Classified Scuba Diving.

Our Vision

Dive Pirates will create a community of Disabled Divers that will dive and travel in the mainstream world of Scuba Diving through education and overcoming obstacles.
