PADI Women’s Dive Day.  
Six years connecting divers and changing lives. 


Celebrate PADI Women's Dive Day 18 July.

This year we’ll come together again from all corners of the globe to continue the tradition by celebrating our connection to each other and the ocean online and in-person where possible.

Join us on Facebook and Instagram for 24 hours of Women’s Dive Day posts, videos, and stories or reach out to your local dive shop or resort before 18 July to find out how you can connect with the dive community on PADI® Women's Dive Day and beyond.
