The International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame (ISDHF) has recognized international pioneers and local Cayman Island honorees for their contributions to the recreational scuba diving industry in a ceremony held on Grand Cayman Island on January 29, 2009.  Awards for the Inductees and local Ministry of Tourism Honorees were presented by the Hon. Charles E. Clifford, JP, Minister for Tourism, Environment, Investment & Commerce in Cayman

The Honorable Minister praised the newest Inductees as dedicated and professional individuals who have taken their love for diving and applied it through various disciplines to promote awareness of the aquatic environment, maintain the admirable safety record of diving, and establish a foundation for the worldwide development of the sport.

The evening’s Master of Ceremonies was Leslie Leaney, President of the Historical Diving Society in the US.  Leslie is a NOGI award winner, and member of the Board of Directors for the International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame.

The award winners received a unique Caymanite prize in the presence of family, friends and admirers at the beautiful Pedro St. James National Historic Site.  All attendees were provided the opportunity to view a video biography of each Inductee, courtesy of Jack and Sue Drafahl of Image Concepts, media consultants to the ISDHF.  View videos at: www.scubahalloffame.com/videobios.
