Green Star Award From PADI

green-star-award-padi

We are thrilled to share that DIVE.IS has received PADI’s GreenStar award!

PADI’s GreenStar award program was developed as a way to track, measure, and modify the ecological footprint of PADI Divecenters and Diveresorts. In order to receive a PADI GreenStar award, Divecenters must fulfil a number of requirements across several categories. For instance, a Divecenter gains points toward an award by ensuring good practices in water conservation, energy use, transportation, and waste management. The award program encourages Divecenters to go green and show leadership in conservation. We work closely with the natural environment and are reminded every time we plunge into the water how important it is for us to protect our ecosystem. We hope you’ll join us in doing everything possible to conserve and protect the environment!

Ants-stern-dive-is-world-cup-champion

This summer went down as one for the history books when Iceland played its first ever game in the 2018 World Cup. We at DIVE.IS as the rest of Iceland, went all out and the excitement was electric. We decided to have our own DIVE.IS World Cup tournament with a Quiz where we all guessed what the outcome of the World Cup would be, what team would win, how far Iceland would go, who would score the most goals and etc. The champion, who received the DIVE.IS World Cup Trophy and the Icelandic National Team Jersey, was one of our guides: Ants Stern.

Here he is accepting his award from our General Manager, Höskuldur Elefsen.

Congratulations Ants! 😃🏆
