To celebrate PADI Women’s Dive Day and the launch of our NEW Community Conservation Education and Action (CCEA) Program we are giving FOUR lucky Bahamian women the chance to Discover Scuba Diving!

The CCEA program seeks to provide the tools, training, and experience to help foster a greater conservation ethic across The Bahamas, while also cultivating the next generation of Bahamian conservation leaders.  One strategy towards this broader goal is to build local capacity for work in marine conservation by providing resources to increase the number of Bahamian divers.



You must be a female Bahamian and over 18 to enter plus available to participate on Saturday 18th July 2020 on New Providence, The Bahamas.
