Discover (or Rediscover) Scuba Diving During PADI’s Women’s Dive Day on July 16

Padi Day

This is a sponsored blog; while the views expressed here were genuinely mine, consideration was paid to me by PADI to review this product

I have a bucket list item that I hope I can check off in the future, and that’s to go scuba diving. I am sure I am not the only woman in the world with this bucket list item and thanks to PADI Dive Shops; they are making sure women everywhere take the time to go exploring in whatever body of water happens to be around you with Women’s Dive Day.


What is Women’s Dive Day?


Well, it’s an adventure, of course. 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 exceptional opportunities for more women to enter the sport of scuba diving.

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!

Women divers

The inaugural 2015 PADI Women’s Dive Day event was a 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 families) from all over the world enjoyed the 2015 event.

I am not certified, yet, so I won’t be joining in on this year’s Women’s Dive Day, but I hope that I will be jumping in next year with all the others! Will you be joining in this year?
