On July 20, 2019, PADI® Dive Centers and Resorts will host thousands of divers for PADI Women's Dive Day, a global celebration of shared adventure, passion and ocean advocacy. While the first PADI Women's Dive Day in 2015 underscored PADI's dedication to strengthening female participation in scuba diving, it has become evident the positive influence of the day extends beyond gender: Events are taking on conservation and community-minded causes at their core, giving divers the opportunity to take action, give back and be a force for good.
"PADI Women's Dive Day has become a global movement to create and inspire a passionate community of ocean advocates that spans generations. What started as a celebration of women in diving has quickly become the single largest day of diving in the world -- something every diver can draw inspiration from," says Kristin Valette-Wirth, chief marketing officer at PADI Worldwide.
This year, PADI Dive Centers and Resorts will again host hundreds of events worldwide. Here are just a few events to look forward to:
