July 16th was the second annual PADI Women in Diving day
We wanted to share the excitement we have with our diving. During this day we taught 23 young ladies from the US to participate in Discover Scuba Diving for the day as well as 5 of their male friends. On our boat Ing-Mari we have 1 lady completing her Scuba Diver course and 1 lady just enjoying diving with us.
We wanted to promote that diving is not a competition, it’s a community. Diving is a great way to meet new people and share experiences with friends or family. However although celebrating women’s contribution to the industry we also acknowledge the great guys we work with here at Kon-Tiki Krabi.
1/3 of all of the PADI certificates goes to women, so let’s inspire these youngsters to carry on with their diving and embrace the underwater world and all it can offer us.
To all the women out there – thank you for being a part of this wonderful world.
