Partnering to Protect Our Planet and Diver Safety

Promoting Scuba Diving Safety and Conservation

At JSIS, we have partnered with some amazing companies and organizations throughout the years. Please take a moment to learn more about them.


According to well-known science, 70% of the Earth is covered by water. The ocean provides most of the oxygen we breathe. It's a major source of the world's food supply. Many promising medical breakthroughs lie beneath its surface. There's a big picture many miss. Whether you know it or not, the ocean affects us every day. Ocean First Education is full of passionate educators, scientists, divers, and explorers seeking to guide users to a greater understanding and appreciation of ocean science and conservation. Through in-depth, multidisciplinary instruction, we take our students to the intersection of fascination and education, creating a deep connection with the ocean's vital marine ecology.

DAN exists to provide expert medical information for the benefit of the diving public. DAN's historical and primary function is to provide timely information and assistance for underwater diving injuries, to work to prevent injuries, and to promote dive safety. DAN also promotes and supports underwater dive research and education, particularly as it relates to the improvement of dive safety, medical treatment, and first aid. Finally, DAN strives to provide the most accurate, up-to-date, and unbiased information on issues of common concern to the diving public, primarily but not exclusively for dive safety.

North Carolina Aquariums

The North Carolina Aquarium on Roanoke Island was established in 1976 to promote an awareness, understanding, appreciation, and conservation of the diverse natural and cultural resources of North Carolina's ocean, estuaries, rivers, streams, and other aquatic environments. NCARI was the first aquarium to allow JSIS to use their exhibits for dive students during the winter months.


Project AWARE

Project AWARE Foundation is a growing movement of scuba divers protecting the ocean, one dive at a time. Our focus is on two major ocean issues: sharks in peril and marine debris, or trash in our ocean. There are many conservation issues converging on our ocean planet at once, but we're concentrating on these serious problems where scuba divers are uniquely positioned to directly and positively affect real, long-term change.
