To celebrate Women’s Dive Day 2019, Grand Cayman dive centre Divetech will attempt to break their own world record for the world's longest underwater human chain.

Divetech set the previous world record in July 2018, when 86 women created a human chain along a 300ft/91m line. The line was suspended at 15ft/4.5m above the sea floor, thus ensuring the women were neutrally buoyant and protecting the coral on the sea floor.

The charitable event also raised over $3,000 for the Cayman Islands Breast Cancer Foundation, as well as raising global awareness for women in diving across all disciplines including recreational, technical and freediving.

On 20 July this year, the team is aiming to set a new world record of at least 100 women, planning an event which will be 'bigger and better' than last year, which again will raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation. The event will again take place on Divetech's house reef at Lighthouse Point. The reef has been recognised as one of the best shore diving locations in the world, and is suitable for divers of all levels.

Divetech is hoping that the community of Cayman dive centres will come together to join the event, as well as take part in a raffle to help raise more money for the Breast Cancer Foundation. Local conservation organisations have also been invited, to raise awareness of local island issues, such as tackling the problem posed by invasive species of lionfish. 

Pre-registration is mandatory for safety and logistical reasons, to book a spot at the event call office on (345) 946 5658 or toll-free US number 1-877-946-5658 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
