Sonfish Outdoor Adventure program is a nonprofit 501 C (3) that provides marine-related adventures for families living with disabilities. We host and provide adventures that will benefit the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of the individual with special needs as well as provide disability awareness to the non-disabled volunteers.
Having a child with a disability changes the typical expectations that a family has for their child. When a child is born, parents expect to see growth and development, as well as anticipated social interactions. Making plans for the future becomes more complex as the child grows older. Many families struggle with the limited opportunities available for their child.
Sonfish provides activities allowing families living with disabilities to enjoy what any typical developing child may experience. A disability does not only affect the child, but also the family. We involve all family members in our activities. Not only do they acquire an expanded view of what their child can accomplish, they also learn from the camaraderie with fellow parents.
Here are some of the activities Sonfish provides for the families.
Here are some of the benefits of being in or around water.

At Sonfish Outdoor Adventure Program we believe in giving back. We had the amazing opportunity to visit the island of St. Kitts and provide a dolphin swim for families that have children with Autism. It was an amazing experience. The families had a wonderful time at the dolphin center. Once again the children overcame their fears and enjoyed an activity that helped stretch their fine motor, gross motor, language, social and cognitive skills.
We Can't wait to travel to a new island to provide this special opportunity.
Give the gift that makes a difference. Consider giving to Project Blue Island. You can give on the website or send me an email for more information.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
