For those not in the know, Miss Scuba is an annual pageant with a difference, it is not solely a beauty or scuba diving competition but is a merging of the two disciplines to help raise awareness for marine conservation and celebrate the inner beauty of today’s modern women.
The competition itself was set up by Mr Robert Lo who is also the proprietor of the Sipadan Mabul Resort (SMART) and Mabul Water Bungalows, and as such is a strong believer in sustainable development within the realms of our marine environment.
He hopes that by sharing the beauty and wonders of the underwater world via beauty queens, it will enable more people to understand how fragile our oceans are and how much more we all need to play our individual little roles to make a big difference in protecting it.
We were lucky enough to host this years Miss Scuba UK – Hannah Higgins – Hannah had the following things to say about the experience:
“We had an absolutely AMAZING! Time with rainbow divers. Whale island was incredible beautiful, Kate and Flo couldn’t have been any nicer. My mum and dad were so grateful to have Kate as an open water instructor because she was so ridiculously patient with my mum who was very scared.
The hotel in Nha trang was ideal, and the diving there was even more beautiful!
All in all we had a fab time – the Vietnamese dive masters were so funny/ kind/ knowledgable/ organised”
