Our Programs

Through our various programs, SEAKERS Aquatic Adventures dedicates its outreach focus on enriching the lives of the people within our community. Our programs are designed to help each participant realize the many ways God has blessed their lives by exploring His kingdom through a different lens. With a focus on quality over quantity, we work individually with every SEAKER with a goal of increasing self-confidence, of developing healthy relationships with family and peers, and of finding a renewed path for growth both personally and professionally.

Cabarrus County High Schools &

Youth Scholarship Program

Believe, Belong, Become Program

SEAKERS Aviation

As our largest outreach program,  SEAKERS teams instructors and certified divers with students from the Cabarrus County High Schools to include the Performance Learning Center (PLC), and the community. The PLC is a small, non-traditional high school geared toward students who are not succeeding in a traditional high school setting. Each year SEAKERS offers scholarships to these students that provides them the opportunity to become NAUI Open Water divers at no cost. Those students who remain active in the program have the opportunity to receive professional level certification through Professional Scuba/Cylinder Inspectors, earn internships at Open Water Adventures and even become NAUI certified divemasters and instructors with employment opportunities around the world.

Adaptive Diver and

Buddy Program

Whether in the swimming pool or in the ocean, SEAKERS instructor, Dr. Shannon McAteer, works with divers with a wide range disabilities, or, as we like to say, ABILITIES! As an active status instructor with the Handicap Scuba Association, Dr. McAteer can introduce the amazing underwater world to people who never thought it possible.

Additionally, SEAKERS offers training to certified divers who wish to become adaptive diver buddies. This program not only teaches divers special techniques to buddy with divers with disabilities, it also lets divers experience what its like to dive without sight, without the use of legs and without the use of arms in a controlled environment.

SEAKERS partners with local High Schools Air Force JROTC and provides aviation education, flight experience and training towards students private pilots license. The SEAKERS Aviation program helps the students be more competitive for the the Air Force JROTC Flight Academy, Chief of Staff Private Pilot Scholarship program. This program allows chosen applicants to participate in an approximately 8-week summer aviation training program, conducted at partnering universities nationwide. Upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded a Private Pilot's Certification

SEAKERS Dive Classes

SEAKERS offers NAUI Certified Scuba Diving Courses from Introductory to Advanced Certifications to the general public. We also have the ability to teach Technical and Professional Level Certifications.  Because we are not a typical scuba organization and all of our instructors are 100% volunteers we do not offer these certifications on a scheduled basis, but offer them on demand and when we have instructor availability. The cost of some of these certifications are below; but for the most up to date pricing and information please contact us to find out more.  Proceeds from all certifications will be used to fund our outreach programs.  A paid customer can give someone a chance to experience an opportunity of a lifetime.  If you are interested in taking a Scuba Certification Course with SEAKERS Aquatic Adventures please fill out the interest form by clicking the button below.
