I extend our gratitude for your generous $1600 donation!
This contribution was made to specifically honour and remember two founding members of your organization, Art McNeil and Brad Rahey, who during their lives not only contributed greatly to the success of The Baddeck Barnacles, but who were most influential in promoting scuba diving in the Bras D'Or Lakes region and protecting the unique biosphere environment it encompasses.
Thanks to your donation, Under the Surface will be able to sponsor Canadian Military Veterans and First Responders to participate in the Scubapeutics program; offering an environment of comradery while creating social connections with others, and providing an opportunity to explore new possibilities and build a sense of identity that can lead to personal growth and a healthy lifestyle.

"Newly retired (2016) from the Canadian Armed Forces, my girlfriend and I decided to move to Mexico to take advantage of the weather, the ‘’chill’’ lifestyle and the Caribbean sea for the incredible scuba diving! I have so much passion for technical scuba diving and love to share this with others by giving courses! If you want to live an incredible experience no matter what level you are, do not hesitate to contact me at Blou diving on Facebook."
Jean-Michel has donated $25 from each PADI certification he taught!
