Our Impact

Since 2008, we have dedicated countless hours to assist hundreds of participants to either get back in the water or experience the ocean for the first time. Our camps leave participants with a better sense of their abilities and day filled with accessibility. We facilitate families to experience an uninhibited day on the beach by providing a safe and accessible environment.



Years Serving communities

What began as a fun project has become our life's mission.





Our camps range from a one day event to week long events.
