It’s been a fun week here with the OBDC (Old Broad’s Dive Club). OBDC is dedicated to enriching the lives of their members with fascinating trips all over the globe, striving to develop friendships and great memories for women divers and their guests.

OBDC was conceived in 1999 by Jane Huessener, who invited 5 women for dinner to discuss her concept of organizing a dive club for woman only (of course, our Sherpa`s and families were always welcome).  Her dream was shared and OBDC was born!  Today they have over 170 current members from all over the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Cayman Islands, Palau, New Zealand and Italy. OBDC will dive anywhere its members think would be a fun and safe destination for our group, however, they tend to follow the 80/80 rule of diving. 80 ft or better visibility and 80 degrees or better for the water temp. (Princess Diving)….LOVE IT!! We missed you here this year Jane, but we made sure your whole gang had a great time.



This is a 2200 dive photo! Congratulations to some of our OBDC divers who did some anniversary dives with us this week.  Jeanne 700, Martha 500, and Sal with a whopping 1000! Considering Sal has only been diving for 8 years that’s pretty amazing!


Congrats to three of the “Old Broads”, Connie, Carly and Diana for getting their nitrox certifications this week and enjoying some great dives on 32%.
