Every quarter the City of Littleton council members go out into the community to tour businesses; meeting owners and company personnel to learn more about all the interesting and unique businesses within our city borders! This quarter was a deep-dive into all the fascinating aspects of A-1 Scuba & Travel. District 1 Councilman Pat Driscoll and his wife were on site along with Craig Hospital President and CEO Jandel Allen-Davis joining A1-Scuba & Travel owners, Lynn and Scott Taylor on a tour of their facility. Lynn and Scott have been avid divers since the late 1960s! Lynn oversees the in-house travel agency and accounting for the business and Scott primarily handles the education department but is hands-on in all aspects of the business. Two things you may not know about this facility is that it has an indoor pool and, for over 40 years, A-1 Scuba has provided FREE adaptive scuba lessons and partners with Craig Hospital to provide scuba experiences to those living with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries and other disabilities.
A-1 Scuba was a recent recipient of the Revitalization Incentive Grant that the Economic Development department for City of Littleton awards to businesses to encourage private property investment and improvements while making revitalization efforts affordable, creative and beneficial to the community. The grant made it possible to assist in needed updates to the building’s parking lot including ADA improvements which helps benefit their adaptive scuba program.
