This year marks the 10th Anniversary of The Women Divers Hall of Fame (WDHOF), an international honor society that recognizes the achievements of outstanding women divers from around the world. To commemorate this milestone, the organization has produced a collectible book that should be a part of every diver’s library. It is also a wonderful gift for any young woman who loves the water.
This 116 page, 4 color book is filled with hundreds of member photos, bios and wonderful personal stories as well as the history of how this incredible organization came to be.
The book is available for a $25 donation to the Women Divers Hall of Fame through their website, www.wdhof.org.

WDHOF, a 501(c)(3) non profit organization, was founded in 2000. To date, 176 women are WDHOF Members. They come from 28 U.S. States, Territories, and 13 countries overseas. These women stand for what is best about women and the world of diving.

Each year WDHOF awards scholarships and training grants offering financial and educational assistance to individuals of all ages, especially to those who are preparing for careers that include scuba diving.
