  • “The most exciting part of NABS for me is 2 fold. Through NABS I have made lifelong friends, friends that I would have never met if not for this wonderful sport of scuba diving. I have gone to places that I would have never gone to if not for scuba diving. The other most filling part is watching the NABS youth grow up. Students like you we have become Marine Biologist, Journalists, Lawyers, Teachers, etc.” From former Youth Committee Chair, Kenneth Stewart.
