A major event in the worldwide dive calendar is the announcement of the entrants into the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame.
These are people who have been instrumental in the pushing forward of the sport, environmental issues and the marine environment over the years, be it through technology, film-making, photography or all of the above.
Several of the inductees at the hall of fame event – which takes place on Tuesday, 8th November – also are central to the ever-popular International Underwater Film Festival and Silent Auction, which runs from 6.30pm onward at the Westin Casuarina Resort and Spa Governor’s Ballroom on Monday, 7 November.
It all kicks off with cocktails and the silent auction, proceeds of which support the Cayman Islands Tourism Association’s marine conservation efforts such as Dive 365, underwater and coastal clean-ups, lionfish culling materials, sinking and maintenance of the Kittiwake, government liaising to request changes to marine laws in order to support the marine environment and the CITA office and staff to provide/support these efforts.
