For the fourth consecutive year, PADI is inviting divers of all ages and experience levels to celebrate women and the dive community for PADI Women's Dive Day 2018. Today, PADI has successfully encouraged females around the globe to band together to safely and confidently explore the underwater world and inspire more women to experience how diving can transform their lives. Diving allows you to explore the other 71 percent of the planet covered in water. It provides abundant opportunities to find adventure in uncharted waters, travel to unique destinations, encounter wildlife and interact with cultures you might not otherwise meet. You’ll even experience things right in your own hometown that you never knew were there.
Hammerhead Freediving shares same vision to make you all diving enthusiasts out there experience the world from a new perspective. Here's @lucyoshie showing us how to maximize underwater diving experience by wearing the very slick HammerHead MV3 Action Mask especially designed to house your go pro camera to capture those priceless underwater moments.
Yesterday I celebrated international women’s dive day by going diving! A bit more puffer love, fusiliers for days and a blue spotted sting ray or two 💙 Sad the weather meant I couldn’t make it to the Phi Phi islands but super happy I managed to get under water all the same.
Diving has become one of my abiding passions. I found myself fallen head over heels in love with the animals I encountered, the corals, the reefs, and every single aspect of the underworld life. From seeing my first shark, swimming above 20 dolphins, feeding stingrays, gazing at ginormous sea turtles to getting stabbed by a sea urchin 100 ft down in the ocean at 9pm. I would do it over and over again in a heart beat. #HappyPADIWomensDiveDay
Happy women's diving day to all the lovely lady divers out there! Keep exploring our oceans and share your passion with everyone you love! 📸: @_there_za_ with an enormous sea fan in Bunaken National Park

Happy Weekend // ☀️💦
Always feel great to explore new things 😂
Im always trying to find places and people that push my curiosity and challenge me to put out honest work. There is no better (scarier) feeling than showing something that is made of tiny pieces of you.
📷@latashia_thilldw - Final moments of a Penguin Life :( as a Leopard Seal closes in for it lunch at Antartica. These 1000 lb Leopard seals have a reputation for being aggressive, yet those that have been in the water with them describe them as gentle, curious creatures. Unless you’re a penguin of course.
Leopard seals are ferocious hunters and lie in wait for the penguins. Their attack is merciless and the predators have been known to shake the penguins back and forth so vigorously that they seemingly turn the chicks inside out. They have also been known to attack and feed on Sharks such as the Blue Sharks (To give perspective, Blue Sharks measure around 2.5m in length)… Google has some amazing photos of Leopard Seals attacking sharks, but they were too gruesome to share.. Interested people, with strong stomachs checkout the results from the Dailymail.co.uk.
