Zoona Naseem has become the first female Maldivian PADI Course Director.
“A very proud moment for Maldivian women and to the dive community!” Divers Association of Maldives said, in an announcement.
Zoona joins Hussain ‘Sendi’ Rasheed as the only two PADI Course Directors in the Maldives.
A career diver of more than 20 years, Zoona achieved the PADI master certificate at the age of 18. She has explored almost every dive site in the Maldives, and is currently pursuing her dream of establishing a dive centre in the suburban Male town of Villimale where she now resides in.
Known internationally as one of the world’s best scuba diving destinations, the Maldives has an abundance of dive sites with one thrilling dive opportunity after another. The islands of the Maldives have consistently warm waters with outstanding visibility throughout the year, and consist of exhilarating dive sites such as vibrant thilas, exciting channels, coral-filled overhangs and fascinating wrecks.
