International Women’s Dive Day 2017
Back in the 60’s, scuba diving was a predominantly male activity. Since then, there has been an increasing proportion of women joining the sport.
In 2015, PADI created the Women’s Dive Day initiative – a special day to get women together, in the water and involved in diving and the goal is to get as many women as possible, at every level, diving on the same day in order to build awareness and interest for the sport.
In 2016, we joined the event with some 16 fine lady divers cleaning our seabed diving against debris. This year, we are joining the initiative again. So this article goes out to all women and women at heart who are in Cebu on the 15th of July 2017. Save the date! We will be doing two (2) easy shore dives in Kontiki. To put more meaning to the dive, we will also make this a dive against debris as a tradition – we will be collecting underwater trash in our colorful girly mesh bags which you can take as souvenirs of the event. At the end of the day, we will collect all data regarding the trash we have collected and report it to the Dive Against Debris website to contribute to the collective view on the status of our adopted dive site, Kontiki Marina.
We are calling out to all women who are avid fans of the ocean to participate in this world celebrated event exclusively for women.
This event will be held in Kontiki, Mactan, Cebu.
If you are interested to join but you have not tried scuba diving yet, or if you are not a certified scuba diver yet, send us a message to find out your options.
The registration for the event is P 2,500, this covers the resort fees, lunch, event t-shirt, reusable bottled water, recognition materials, use of basic equipment, 2 tanks of air and weights. Mystery gift awaits to those ladies who joined us in last year’s Women’s Dive Day event.
