Hurricane Relief Efforts

hurricane relief

After two powerful storms hit Texas, Florida and the Caribbean, it has been a difficult time for the millions of people affected by evacuations, flooding, electrical outages and loss of loved ones. We empathize with our friends, family and colleagues after the Category 4 and 5 storms hit, bringing 298-kph/185-mph winds, catastrophic flooding and tropical cyclone rain, leaving 7.5 million people without power for days. With Hurricane Maria currently surging through the Caribbean, our hearts and thoughts go out to those anticipating the storm.

As divers, we want to seize the opportunity to help our fellow dive community in the affected locations. The Red Cross, Caribbean Tourism Organization, and Sandals Foundation are accepting donations to continue providing aid and relief to these specific destinations to help make a difference.

We’ll provide updates on locations that are ready to welcome tourists again once the hurricane passes.
