Celebrating Diversity in Diving Day Above and Below the Surface

This Diversity in Diving Day (May 21), we recognize that diversity in the scuba diving community is essential for promoting inclusivity and accessibility to people of all backgrounds, ages, and abilities. Encouraging a diverse community can not only inspire more individuals to explore and appreciate the beauty of the underwater world but also promote the protection of our oceans for future generations.
