Join us for DFL's 29th annual LGBTQ SCUBA Diving Jamboree
at The Pearl Resort, Fiji, Oct. 17 - 24, 2021

29th Annual DFL FIJI is Oct. 17 - 24, 2021.

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.  Your Diving For Life board had been exploring the possibility of holding the 2020 event in light of the changing circumstances around the world. With this in mind, and 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.

If you were unable to secure your registration for the 2020 event, there is still a possibility that we will have space for you in 2021!

Create your DFL Member account! A DFL Membership account is required for Jamboree registration.

This is what's happening.

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

Patrick Kelly, Founder

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.


It's been nearly 29 years since the vision of one man created the worldwide Diving For Life family. Since 1992, Diving For Life has held 28 Scuba Diving Jamborees with hundreds of participants in 14 countries, and affected thousands of lives with over  $1.5 million US dollars given to charity. So join us!
