Join us for DFL’s 29th annual LGBTQ SCUBA Diving Jamboree at The Pearl Resort, Fiji, postponed until 2021

29th Annual DFL FIJI is now POSTPONED until 2021. Email We will have new details in the coming weeks. If you missed out for the Fiji event, there is still a possibility that we will have space for you in 2021!

A message from DFL’s Board of Directors:

Twenty-nine years ago, Diving For Life was started as a fund raiser for a virus that was plaguing our community. We have continued on every year since, raising well over a million dollars. This year a new virus has hit the whole world and we find ourselves in a unique situation.

For the safety of all participants, the resort and dive operator, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 29th Diving For Life jamboree until 2021.

We have tacit agreement with the resort & dive operator to carry over our contract one year.

We hope you all are being careful, staying at home and covering up.

–2020 and 2021 Coordinators Matt & Tracy
with the entire DFL Board

Who We Are

Diving For Life is a tax exempt, not for profit organization that sponsors The International Gay and Lesbian Scuba Jamboree. All proceeds from the Jamboree are donated to charitable organizations that support the health concerns of the LGBTQ community.

Birth of a Movement

One who “lives to dive” can also “dive to live.” So proved Patrick Kelly when he gave birth to the First Annual Diving For Life Scuba Jamboree in 1992. A veteran diver in love with the sport and infected with the AIDS virus, Patrick’s dream was to unite all gay and lesbian divers while raising money to fight the virus which was slowly depriving him of life.
