PADI Women’s Dive Day 201921 Jul 2019
PADI’s Women’s Dive Day is an initiative to encourage more women into the sport of scuba diving, either on a recreational level or professionally. 2019 marks the fifth anniversary of this special day for women in diving. The idea is not only to reduce the gender gap in diving but in doing so getting more people actively diving, therefore creating more stewards of the ocean. With diving comes increased awareness of this fragile ecosystem, and with awareness comes the possibility to fight the oceans cause.
20th July was a day of shared adventure and love of the ocean across the Prodivers Dive Centers:
On Komandoo we celebrated the PADI Women’s dive day on 20.07.2019. We took all our female divers to the famous dive site Kuredu Caves, where we spotted 6 huge green sea turtles, 1 blacktip reef shark, 3 grey reef sharks, 1 nurse shark, 1 black spotted stingray and loads of fish. Furthermore, we used this special day to create a new diver – Congratulations to Nadha for completing the Open Water Course. Thank you, ladies, for making this an unforgettable event.
The team at Kuredu hosted a free relaxed afternoon boat dive for all the ladies in the house with snacks and drinks afterward. In total 11 ladies joined and they dived Aquarium which is breathtakingly beautiful.
To celebrate the ”Women Dive Day 2019” the Prodivers Team on Lily Beach organized a special afternoon boat for ”ladies only” to a beautiful reef close by. Guests and hotel staff enjoyed a cheerful dive with eagle rays, a turtle and a shark. Even a mermaid showed up! Girls just wanna have fun!
The Prodivers team at Vakarufalhi celebrated this special day by taking all the certified lady-divers to a boat dive at Vakarufalhi Beru Thila. This site is well known for it’s beautiful soft corals which are covering the thila completely! For the non-certified women, a free try-dive was organized in our lagoon to discover and enjoy the underwater world.
As Innahura Island Resort and Spa only opened recently, our women divers were exited to take part in this year’s PADI Women’s Dive Day. On this morning’s dive numerous hawksbill turtles, a feather tail stingray, a nurse shark, a mobula manta and a garden of anemones with Maldivian clownfish and a porcelain crab were among the local residents that greeted our women divers. Lots of fun was had and to celebrate, the ladies toasted with the local coconut drinks, the Kurumba.
