Sunshine, Selfies and Scuba

Have you got your pair?

PADI Scuba Selfie Specs

This week has been a crazy one; full of sunshine, selfies and scuba. Why? Well – it’s Zenobia week of course! This special wreck event week is fast becoming a tradition and this year was no exception. Dive centers from all over the island have been bringing their guests to Larnaca to dive the Top 3rd wreck in the world and to compete in the PADI Selfie competition.


Scuba Selfie competition?


PADI loves special events, nothing excites them more. This year PADI sponsored Zenobia week by offering a free pair of sunglasses to every diver who signed up for either the deep diver or wreck diver speciality course. If that wasn’t enough,  participants were asked to get creative above the water by taking a cool selfie and  entering  PADI’s selfie competition. The coolest selfie was carefully selected and the winner won an amazingly beautiful Aqualung CORE regulator…thankyou Mercury Divers!!


Winner Core Regulator

Scuba Selfie Winner = Jurg Dahler

Larnaca was full of the hustle and bustle of busy divers over the weekend, all running around in “cool banana” yellow PADI shades snapping shots in the bazarest of angles. Dive equipment was lugged, tanks were filled and suncream was applied as truck after truck arrived at Larnaca Marina. Happy smiles and damp hugs were everywhere as dive buddies reunited on one of the best dives of their lives. Instructors and divemasters were practically dancing at the PADI Pavilion,and their divers were all eager to meet Sascha Engeler,  the PADI Regional Manager, to hopefully make their selfie the winning one. Nice try guys, but you had to follow the link “” (competion is now closed) to enter! The positive energy was everywhere and it was such a joy to be part of it. Scuba diving is such a uniting activity. Divers from all walks of life had a million things to talk about, a million things to share and even more to compare. Sunday the 28th June has been one of my favorite days of the year so far and I have had a pretty epic year already.

Thank you to everyone who took part. Jurg Dahler of Coral Bay Divers took the winning scuba selfie, so the  CORE regulator has  gone to a good home. It definitely will get to dive regularly and will  be allowed to play with all of its underwater friends!
