Join Pura Vida Divers as we celebrate Women’s Dive Day with a fascinating July social night presentation of Women in Diving by Renee Power on Friday, July 27th! Renee will share with us some of the history of women in SCUBA diving, as well as discuss social concerns, fitness and training, and gear selection tips beneficial to ladies of the sport. All divers are welcome, and Renee promises a surprise plot-twist that will be engaging for everyone in attendance!

The event begins at 6:30 PM. Guests will enjoy a “happy hour” spread of hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine prior to the presentation. Full event itinerary below…

Renee will be diving with Pura Vida over the weekend as well! Join us for a Ladies Dive aboard charter vessel Sirena on Saturday, July 28, or explore the Blue Heron Bridge during a Ladies shore dive the morning of Sunday, July 29. All events will be led by our female dive guides!
