The Ralph Erickson Educational Foundation is a 501 (C) (3). We strive to provide an opportunity for those divers whose economic status prohibits them from continuing their education to the Instructor ranks of the scuba diving industry.
Ralph knew the amazing connection that occurs when man goes underwater and explores a whole new world. REEF works to provide local islanders with the opportunity to advance in the scuba diving industry. Connect with us on social media!

Ralph Erickson , Co- founder of PADI
Ralph and John Cronin set down one night with a bottle of scotch and an idea that would revolutionize the dive industry. What followed would become the largest organization of divers in the world. Ralph's passion was diver education, REEF aims to continue his dream!
