What is Scuba Day?
Join us this year as we inaugurate the first-ever International Scuba Day! What exactly is International Scuba Day, though?
Planned for August 6th, 2023, it’s a chance for ocean-lovers across the world to celebrate what we love most: blowing bubbles. No matter your experience level — from novice to expert — International Scuba Day is for you.
We hope to have hundreds of participants from 150 countries, including dive centers, resorts, training organizations, groups representing divers, and conservation organizations hosting events. Everyone is connected to the ocean in some way, and if you have an interest in diving you can join in on the celebration!
Dive shops around the world will be planning a variety of events like group dives and/or discounts on classes and gear to encourage you to get underwater with your buddies.
How did we choose the date?
On August 6th, 1926, French Naval officer Yves Paul Gaston Le Prieur and inventor Maurice Fernez unveiled and tested the Fernez-Le Prieur diving apparatus in a Paris swimming pool.
A cylinder of compressed air on the diver’s back combined with a regulator allowed the diver total freedom underwater, without need for surface-supplied air. Thus was scuba as we know it today born, so it’s the perfect anniversary to celebrate our sport!
Finally, the why — why do we need an International Scuba Day? Well, we live in a world where there’s an International Carrot Day (April 4th, if you’re interested) so it seems crazy that there’s not a day dedicated to celebrating one of the most transformative — and fun — outdoor experiences you can have on our planet.
This year, on August 6th visit a participating dive shop near you and get involved. Go diving; enter a drawing for prizes; or just take some time that day to plan your next diving vacation.
We’ll see you underwater!
