Female Divers Hold Hands to Break World Record

Female scuba divers in the Cayman Islands are attempting to break a world record and promote the place of women in the dive industry by a simple-yet-powerful gesture—holding hands.

In July, Cayman’s Divetech dive shop will organize a try to set the record for the longest female underwater human chain. The attempt is timed with PADI’s Women’s Dive Day on July 21, which will celebrate women in diving at hundreds of dive centers around the world. In addition, the event in Cayman will be used to raise money for the Cayman Islands Breast Cancer Foundation. 

“By joining each other in dive or ocean related activities, it will attract new divers, keep women active in diving, help the environment or raise money for a charity,” Divetech owner Jo Mikutowicz told the Cayman Compass. “Women bring a different level of pizazz to the sport with their amazing energy and it’s always a very fun and supportive event.”

If you’re in Grand Cayman on July 21 (possess two X chromosomes) and want to aid in the record attempt, contact Divetech for more information. A donation of $25 is required to participate.
