Now a huge community event with volunteers and participants from all different shops, clubs and areas, DATC boasts more than 100 divers coming together each year! The event is orignally the brainchild of good friends and fellow instructors, Kyle Larson and Larry Trenda. In 2006, eager to bring the Puget Sound Scuba Dive community together, regardless of shop affiliation or club membership, they wanted to find a way to gather everyone and give back to the community. After tons of searching and reviewing candidates, Seattle Children's Hospital, specifically their Cancer Research Program was finally chosen as the beneficiary.
