“PADI Women Dive day” and our very own “Men’s Day” weekend was a blast. Thanks to all who came and participated in our celebration for a “healthy ocean – healthy body”. It was super fun with some interesting things to do and taste for everyone. Alli stated it up with a 6 a.m. loop walk, than Sabine got everyone doing yoga on the platform. The day continued with some diving, drinking some very yummy healthy drinks by Jamie, eating and just all hanging out together. Some went on to do the Hash Run as well…. It was a bit wet, but everyone enjoyed.
Fun filled ‘trashure’ dive as part of the Women’s Dive Day
Our Women’s Dive Day also included a Project AWARE “Dive Against Debris” and we had an amazing team of trashure hunters with us on a fun filled dive. Besides ‘trashure’ we also saw schooling mullets, frogfish, mermaids and mermen
During lunch we sampled our new healthy fruit juices under the slogan “healthy ocean – healthy body” while Maryjune Cabiguin from the University of the Philippines / Marine Biology section gave a wonderful short presentation about ocean conservation and how we all can contribute.

In total we collected an amazing 276 items weighing 41 kg. Great job everyone. We reported it all to Project AWARE so it can help policy development implementation in the region.
