Most Women SCUBA Diving Together: World Record Attempt

 

Girls that Scuba - the worlds’ largest female scuba diving community, attempted a Guinness World Record last week in Gili Trawangan, Indonesia with the most amount of female scuba divers diving together in a single dive.

This all-female powerhouse group has not even celebrated its 2nd birthday but is already making waves around the world by empowering and encouraging more women to start scuba diving.

Last week at their latest meet-up they realised that with such a great turnout, they may well be setting a new record. After a quick check and discovering that there has never been one set for the most amount of women diving together, they registered straight away to create a new Guinness World Record – and are now eagerly waiting to see if it’s been accepted (although after providing evidence this can take up to 12 weeks!).

With high hopes and even higher spirits, 48 female divers congregated at Manta Dive, Gili Trawangan to spend a day full of Girls That Scuba power. Along with the dive - where a 48-woman underwater pyramid was also attempted - they also had the opportunity to try twin tanks in the pool and have a small introduction into technical diving; another part of the sport that they are keen to introduce more women to.

In the afternoon over 50 men and women crowed into Manta Dive cafe to listen to an incredible presentation by coral expert Nicole Henderson of www.reefdivers.io on how we should all "see the reef with new eyes" and appreciate the amazing corals we see on our dives.

A BBQ and drinks ended an incredible day alongside a slideshow of the pictures taken during the action by talented photographers and high-profile Instagrammers Alfred Minnar and Alex Kydd among others. 

Something Girls that Scuba (GTS) has always strived for is connecting others, creating new friendships and inspiring women, and you could almost see the electricity between new and old diving friends during the night. An ode to not only GTS but to the dive community as a whole as they start an incredible female movement within the scuba diving industry!
