PADI Women's Dive Day 21st July 2018

A great big thank you to those who attended both this special event and I hope to see you again next year!  Both women and men who dived  had a fantastic day as it was relaxed but great fun. 

PADI Women's Dive Day was created to grow and strengthen the female dive commuity, encourage more women to experience the underwater world for the first time, dive back into diving, continue their training or begin dive life after falling in love with the aquatic world.

Overall, this day is about brining together the diving community and creating new ambassadors for our ocean.

Keeping in mind, that men aren't excluded from the fun!  They were welcomed in this event and joined in the celebrations.
