To celebrate women in diving, PADI is hosting its inaugural PADI Women’s Dive Day on 18 July 2015. This is a special day to get women together to go diving. The emphasis is to get as many women as possible, at every level, diving on the same day in order to build awareness and interest for the sport of scuba diving.

While the focus is on women, all are encouraged to get involved. This is a great opportunity for everyone in the family to get together for a fun day of diving.  We encourage husbands to join their wives, for mothers to bring their sons and daughters, or for life long best friends to enjoy the day together.

At Pura Vida Divers we pride ourselves on having multiple female staff members ranging in roles that include:  Course Director, dive instructor, dive master, boat crew, manager, and owner. But most importantly, they are all avid divers.

So what are you doing on 18 July 2015? Join Pura Vida Divers and divers from all around the globe as we celebrate PADI Women’s Dive Day with a Blue Heron Bridge Dive lead by Course Director Barbara DeClerque!

Itinerary for the morning:

Check-in begins at 8am at Pura Vida Dive Shop. All divers must complete a liability release before heading over to Phil Foster Park.

High tide is at 10:30am. Barbara will give a detailed briefing at 9am by the shower on the east side of the bridge and begin her dive at 9:30am. You may join her or start your dive whenever you feel the most comfortable.

You may join the group dive, dive on your own with a buddy, or request a private guide. Please remember that each dive group must have a legal dive flag. Barbara will be conducting a dive for approximately 60 minutes. If you wish to stay longer then 60 minutes, or would like to leave the group for any reason, please bring your own dive flag.

Please register with Pura Vida Divers in advanced to guarantee your reservation.

For reservations call or email.
