The International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame induction ceremony and banquet takes place at Grand Old House on Tuesday, 8th November.

It is the 11th year of an event that has helped to ensure Cayman’s status on the global map of dive, says committee member Rod McDowall.

“We had the `0th anniversary last year. We induct international scuba diving founders; people primarily in the recreational diving industry.

“It is extremely well-recognised by the industry. It is a great event; we get a lot of press and PR from all over the world.

We’ve had South Pacific, Australia, Europe, North America. It is a great way to host and entertain the people who have made the industry so significant,” he says.

Indeed, the event is also testimony to Cayman as a diving destination and its reputation as one of the best destinations worldwide.

“It was very opportune that 11 years ago the government and tourism people came up with the concept and have kept it going.”

The 2011 inductees include Howard and Michele Hall, Andre Laban, Clement Lee, Bev Morgan and Allan Power.

Also recognised on the night will be diving pioneers Hugh Bradner, Louis de Corlieu and John Scott Haldane.

“The ceremony really is worthwhile – it’s like a great sporting event with the top people in the industry coming over.
