This past Saturday, on July 15th, 2023 we celebrated Women’s Dive Day with a cleanup at Point Panic that included a special raffle for our women participants. Women’s dive day was started by PADI 9 years ago as a simple idea to encourage more women to go SCUBA diving. It has since grown into the most celebrated day of diving on the planet, transforming lives and opening the door to the underwater world.
Volunteers started showing up to the beach park around 8 AM. It was a gloomy and rainy start to the day causing some divers to stay at home or leave in search of clearer skies. The ones who hung around for the event were still happy to be there in spite of the rain!
