5th to 14th
What is Dive Fest?
Dive Fest is an annual event sponsored by the DWA to focus attention
on the sport of scuba diving, to educate the public about Scuba
Diving (as a tourism product and a career path), and to raise
awareness about Dominica's stunning and unique marine
The first Dive Fest was held in 1994 and while it has grown in
popularity and activities over the past decade, there are several
events that make up its core. This is a truly unique event in
Dive Fest 2011 was a great success.
It was the 18th consecutive year of Dive Fest and we were pleased
to host the Scubaradio Mermaids once again, who were sponsored by Swiss Army/Victorinox and Jewellers International.
- Sealife Cameras debuted their
new underwater cameras, giving divers the chance to test
the cameras out and to take part in photo shoots and a “Best
of Week” competition. The first-ever Mermaid photo competition was a big hit!!
- Dive Training sent down two
and Ruth Guimbellot, who put on seminars
and workshops on both underwater.
- Scubar Radio broadcast Dive Fest over two weekends.
Along with these events for divers, there was plenty of excitement
for non divers too! Wine and Cheese Sunset Cruises,
Happy Hour dances, Traditional Boat Races and whale watching to
name a few.
