On Behalf of PADI EMEA, I would like to THANK all PADI Dive Resorts and PADI Professionals in Egypt who participated in the 2017 PADI Women’s Dive Day.
Aim of the event is to convert a “male-dominated” diving industry into a more modern and up-to-date one, where women should make up half of all certifications!
Here some examples on how PADI Diving Resorts in Egypt helped in achieving the goal:
Blue Ocean Organized a ladies only day diving followed by an evening party with live music and fire show.
Circle Divers Organized two ladies only dives from the shore with a special lunch break in a picturesque location followed by an evening BBQ at the diving center.Dive Point Red Sea Divers United (Elite Diving) Organized a ladies full day diving Organized a “Safari dress up day!” from the boat (with an intruder). The theme was 60’s flower power!
H2O Divers Organized a ladies only clean up dive followed by BBQ at night.
Pharaoh Dive Club Organized a ladies only reef/beach clean up as well as invited local Egyptian ladies to try snorkeling and/or diving.
This was a great day for everyone to help strengthen and grow the female dive community, attract new women to the sports of scuba diving and freediving, and motivate existing female divers to get back in the water and continue their dive training!
