Kayla Martin made her first dive trip at six weeks old and could swim before she could walk. This naturally led to a love of the underwater world.
In 2013 at just 13 years old she got certified and has since logged over 200 dives exploring the history of Great Lakes Shipwrecks and the beauty of tropical coral reefs.
Since 2014, in hopes of inspiring the next generation of divers, Kayla has been creating videos to share her experiences and love of diving.
For the last four years she has been presenting at dive shows across North America, including the prestigious Our World Underwater Evening Film Festival in Chicago, where Kayla stood out as the youngest presenter ever in the 45-year history of the event.
A Women’s Day of Diving
Join Kayla in the celebration of women coming together to share their passion for our underwater world.
In 2015 PADI started the first International Women’s Day of Diving. On this day women all over the world came together to celebrate their passion for diving and the underwater world. Over the last four years, the excitement has continued to grow, resulting in over 100 countries now participating.
Kayla will share her experiences in organizing her own event this past year diving Shipwrecks in the St Lawrence River.
