PADI Women’s Dive Day 2021: Celebrate the Connection Between Humanity and the Ocean

https://www.padi.com/women

With the overwhelming support of the dive community over the last six years, PADI Women’s Dive Day has unquestionably grown into a worldwide celebration that brings everyone together to foster a global community that encourages divers of all genders, ages, backgrounds and experience levels to safely and confidently seek adventure and save the ocean. What began in 2015 as a way to encourage more female participation in the sport has evolved over the years, gaining traction across this industry with both males and females alike. Since it began, tens of thousands of new and experienced divers have taken part in more than 4,000 PADI® Women’s Dive Day events in over 100 countries around the world.

This year, we invite divers to join the global celebration on 17 July 2021 to help create balance between humanity and the ocean. PADI Members are encouraged to host an event – in person or virtually – that celebrates the diversity of the dive community and nurtures the connection between our communities and the waters where we dive.

Many places around the world are beginning to open for local business and even some limited travel, while other locations remain limited in activity. Whatever your situation, PADI Women’s Dive Day provides a unique opportunity to connect with your local dive community – whether its welcoming them back into the water with you or rallying your divers for a virtual event. Of course, safety guidelines should always be top of mind and best practices implemented.
