Pro Dive International hosts second Annual PADI Women’s Dive Day

Published

on

Pro Dive International has announced their participation in the second annual PADI Women’s Dive Day on July 16th, 2016.

In its inauguration year in 2015, PADI Women’s Dive Day featured events across 65 countries and all seven continents – a historic day in diving history.

PADI Marketing Director Katie Thompson said that the ratio of male to female SCUBA divers was about 65 percent men to 35 percent women. “We thought we could break down these barriers and create a community of women in diving and balance out that ratio a little bit, so we created a day to get people together.”

“We love this idea, and would like to encourage more women to join this amazing sport. Therefore we would like to invite you to join Pro Dive International at any of our dive centers along the Riviera Maya and Cozumel/ Mexico, or Punta Cana/ Dominican Republic,” says Maria Jose Lledo, Operations Manager at Pro Dive International.

On this occasion, Pro Dive International are offering a 50% discount on 2 dives for all diver girls on PADI Women’s Dive Day, and invites them to partake in their Facebook Selfie Contest to win a 6-Tank Dive Package.

More information about this event can be found here.

Jeff chats to… Jill Heinerth – underwater explorer, author and presenter (Watch Video)

Published

on

In this exclusive Zoom interview, Jeff Goodman, Scubaverse Editor-at-Large, chats to Jill Heinerth.

Jill is one of the world’s premier underwater explorers, and the first person to dive inside iceberg caves. According to filmmaker James Cameron, “More people have walked on the moon than have been to some of the places Jill Heinerth has gone right here on earth.”

An acclaimed polar explorer, cave diver, author, speaker, filmmaker, and climate advocate, Jill is the first Explorer-in-Residence of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society. She is the inaugural recipient of the Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration and Canada’s Polar Medal.

Jill leads expeditions into extreme environments to advance scientific and geographic knowledge. Her projects have been broadcast on the CBC, BBC, PBS, Discovery Channel, and television networks worldwide. Jill was announced as the recipient of the William Beebe Award from the Explorer’s Club and was inducted into the International Scuba Divers Hall of Fame in fall 2020.

Her bestselling book INTO THE PLANET – My Life as a Cave Diver  has drawn acclaim from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, NPR, and O Magazine. Heinerth details her journey into the extreme world of underwater cave exploration, where she has had to overcome fear in order to go where no one has gone before.
