A memorial dive to the late Nir Avni

As part of the festival's events, we will take the opportunity to gather hundreds of divers to say goodbye to one of the most esteemed figures in the diving industry, Nir Avnei Zichrono Bracha.

On Friday 5/11/2021 at 14:00, a memorial dive will be held at the Stil site, Achi Sufa, Eilat.

During the dive the participants created a human circle of divers on the surface of the water, a custom of sailors around the world as a sign of parting from one of them.

Divers will then start diving into pairs or small groups individually.

After the dive, we will gather at Almog Beach in the bar of Aqua Beach to raise a glass in memory of Nir Avni, happy hour divers, pleasant music and a winter sunset.
