Bermuda Tourism Authority [BTA] announces the return of Dive Month. Driven by the success of the inaugural year in 2022, BTA has again partnered with the island’s skilled and qualified dive industry to bring awareness to Bermuda’s waters. As becoming a greener destination is a key focus identified in the National Tourism Plan, promoting the island’s clean and healthy ocean environment, through initiatives such as Dive Month, is another opportunity to support the growth of eco-tourism and inspire travel to the island.
This year’s Dive Month will encompass several events, including a Community Day. A free event which will be held at the Spanish Point Boat Club on April 16th.
Attendees can expect to mix and mingle with divers, industry professionals, and experts and discover what diving in Bermuda is all about.
“For April, we are encouraging visitors and our local community to walk beyond our pink sands and plunge into our crystal blue waters to experience our island from a new vantage point,” said Tashae Thompson, VP of Experiences, Bermuda Tourism Authority. “Our island houses over 350 shipwrecks, home to thousands of ecosystems. With Bermuda being one of the few destinations to have rare 175 feet of underwater visibility during April, we are a prime location for curious and experienced divers to visit for picturesque ocean exploration.”
Throughout April 2023, BTA will highlight the fantastic world under the water by celebrating Bermuda’s oceans and encouraging their exploration. During the month, people can expect to learn more about Bermuda’s reefs and underwater life, take advantage of discount programmes to become dive certified and explore other ways to get involved with Bermuda’s dive community.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority has partnered with three diving businesses to offer a special rate of $99 for their dive experiences:
Freediving Bermuda is run by two free-spirited Bermudians who love to be in and under the water. Before starting the business, Adam and Seb would spend most of their free time on the water looking for new wrecks and reefs to freediving.
In April, Freediving Bermuda will provide a four-hour Introduction to a freediving experience. Customers will travel by boat to two dive sites while learning the basics and safe practice of strong breath hold.
