Grenada will host the second annual Pure Grenada Dive Fest this October. Running from October 3 to 6, the event showcases the various reef and wreck dive sites as well as provides two days of sustainable activities for guests to clean up and maintain the surrounding marine ecosystem.

The half of the Dive Fest will be dedicated to reef and wreck sites. The second day of the festival will also include a beginner’s pool diving course for those less experienced. Throughout these days event organizers encourage divers to participate in a photography competition, where participants can win prizes for most creative selfie, best reef photo, best wreck photo and more. The festival will crown the winners on the final day at the evening social event.

The last two days on the schedule are dedicated to sustainable activities.  On October 5, Project Aware Dive Against Debris day, organizers have scheduled clean-up dives off the shore and educational presentations at local schools on best diving practices. The last day will center on catching the invasive lionfish. Once divers finish, they will meet up at Coconut Beach Restaurant with their catches for the final evening social event.

Diving enthusiasts do not need to pay a registration for Pure Grenada Dive Festival. Instead Pure Grenada suggests heading to a local dive shop to reserve specific festival events.
