PADI Women’s Dive Day Hosts A Series of Global Events

PADI will be celebrating Women’s Dive Day on July 20, 2019, with a series of global events to celebrate women in diving.

According to PADI Worldwide’s Chief Marketing Officer Kristin Valette-Wirth:

“PADI Women’s Dive Day has become a global movement to create and inspire a passionate community of ocean advocates that spans generations. What started as a celebration of women in diving has quickly become the single largest day of diving in the world – something every diver can draw inspiration from.” 

Events this year include:

  • Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands– Divetech will try to break its own world record for the longest female underwater chain with over 100 women participating. The event is to raise awareness for the Breast Cancer Foundation and local conservation organizations.
  • Queensland, Australia– The Brisbane Dive Academy will celebrate the day with a barbecue and shore dive.
  • Thaa Atoll, Maldives– COMO Maalifushi is running various events through July. Events include reef clean-ups, conservation courses, and movies under the stars amongst others. Events will also include Discover Scuba opportunities for local women.
  • Channel Islands, USA– A youth scuba team will embark on a liveaboard trip to the California Channel Islands. The expedition is led by PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer Annie Crawley.
