What is Women’s Dive Day you ask? Its an adventure. A day like no other. A day to share a life-experience with current and new friends.
July 16, 2016 marks the second annual PADI Women’s Dive Day. It’s an annual celebration of women in scuba diving and provides special opportunities for more women to enter the sport of scuba diving.
I got PADI certified when I was just 16 years old. Exploring the incredible world under the sea is so indescribable and exhilarating that over the years, I’ve talked many friends into getting certified as well. The perma-smile on their faces after their first open water dive says it all.
During PADI Women’s Dive Day, PADI Dive Centers and Resorts, dive clubs, and other organizations around the world will offer female-friendly dives and events, ranging from first-dives to shark dives, beach clean-ups to special speaker engagements, and much more. Some PADI Dive Shops will also offer the opportunity to try scuba diving, for the first time, through the PADI Discover Scuba® Diving program. Others will focus on PADI ReActivate™, which gives lapsed divers the opportunity to refresh their scuba skills, rediscover the sport they love and reactivate their dive certifications!
The inaugural 2015 PADI Women’s Dive Day event was an historic day for diving. More than 6,000 divers from 65 countries participated in 335 special events on all seven continents. The PADI photo album on Facebook shows how women (and some with their their families) from all over the world enjoyed the 2015 event.
