Covid Diver Heroes

Thank your Covid Hero

Do you know a diver who has been heroic this past year? We know that people have had to step up all over the world as the pandemic affected so many lives, and we want to reward some real heroes with free liveaboard trips as our way of saying ‘thank you’. For example healthworkers, carers, people who have come out of retirement to volunteer locally, people who have taken a selfless interest in looking after the vulnerable in their community – we want to hear from you if you know of a heroic diver like that who would love to have a liveaboard trip to look forward to in the future. We know there are hundreds if not thousands of stories of amazing people who have stepped up and we hope you will tell us about them.

It’s simple, you need to nominate them and tell us why they deserve a free trip in 100 to 200 words along with a recent photo of them, and whether they would prefer a Red Sea trip or a Maldives trip. A multinational panel of some of our most loyal and compassionate staff will judge the entries and pick a winner every 2 weeks for the next 4 months. There are 4 Red Sea and 4 Maldives liveaboards to be earned, so get nominating and give that hero a reward for their amazing work!
