Trident Warriors Diver Training

Our goal is to harness the support of civilians who are willing to conduct their diver training with us so that we may provide free diver training to combat veterans.

Our Mission: To give purpose and provide physical and mental relief to combat veterans of all allied forces using Scuba Diving to harness the power of the ocean and its three-dimensional weightlessness to help recharge the mind, body and soul with zero cost but time and effort to those that have given so that we may be free.

Each package will include a free identical package for a combat veteran.  When you train with us we make an oath to train a Combat Veteran at zero cost to them.
