Underwater Oahu is a proud supporter of the Handicapped Scuba Association. Our HSA Open Water course is specially designed for people with disabilities and are taught with a high margin of safety. We also teach Advanced Open Water certification courses for divers with disabilities.
These training techniques have been carefully developed based on 20 years of continuous research and feedback. All handicapped students are trained and certified according to HSA Physical Performance Standards. HSA has carefully trained us to work with divers who have a wide range of disabilities, including paraplegia, quadriplegia, the blind and those with high-functioning brain injuries.
