Who Arranged The Dive Class?

For now, it is not clear who is the person or the team behind operating this dive class. The Northwest Adventure Centre is the institution. It is the base-run outdoor activities operator who had arranged this class.

This group was arranging an open water scuba diver certification. However, the location given on the website for the diving session was somewhere else. The rescuers were assembled at Russell Landing but on the site’s website, the class was supposed to happen on Sunnyside Beach in Steilacoom.

JBLM Scuba is a shop located in the Northwest Adventure Centre. It has quite a reputation as a 5-Star Dive Center. Besides, it is also approved by PADI, an industry association. As per the website, this center is considered to be one of the few centers in the military. When officials were trying to call the center on Sunday, none picked up.  Also, an email was sent but the center didn’t respond at all.

The company’s website mentioned, “Safety is a top priority, and divers with medical problems, such as high blood pressure, must have their doctor’s approval and be medically cleared.”
