DiveFestAdDive fest 2013 was officially launched with a formal ceremony on Friday July 5th at the Fort Young Hotel Water Front.

The launch of the event, organized by the Dominica Water Sports Association (DWA) is to observe its 20th anniversary.

Chief Executive Officer of Discover Dominica Authority, Mr. Colin Piper stated, the public and business partners should all play their part in the continued support of Dive Fest.

Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, Mrs. Claudia Bellot, stated this 20 year milestone that Dive Fest will be celebrating, is by no means a small achievement. It can be very difficult to maintain activities at its level for such a long time, she explained.

Headline sponsor of Dive Fest 2013, Digicel, will host a Treasure Hunt promotion as stated by their Marketing Manager, Mrs. Natalie Walsh.

Clues will be given on social media pages including facebook and twitter, where customers will win interesting prizes.

President of the DWA, Mr. Simon Walsh, said from inception Dive Fest has come a long way, even after they had to change their original intended target market.557068_329338053822016_1154651646_n

Mr. Walsh noted, the DWA has the least financial and human resource, yet they have managed to come up with one of the most effective lion fish control programmes in the Caribbean, because of their teamwork.

Dive Fest 2013’s first event will take place at the Newtown Savannah in the form of a football match at 7pm.
