This may be the best overall seminar program that the show has presented. History, adventure, marine life, diving physiology, underwater photography, local dive spots, foreign travel, marine conservation and more. The speakers know their topics and love to share them with you. Seminars are very popular with show-goers. Seminars, presentations and workshops run throughout the show.


Starting to dive and socialize again requires the travel “F” word — being FLEXIBLE! After years of traumas and challenges on the COVID coaster, you or your dive group might need to remember how to be courageous and step back out into the world. Get back underwater — learn the tips and tricks I’ve perfected from my 30+ years reinventing myself. Find a buddy, follow your bubbles and never give up!

See you May 14th 2pm at the Scuba Show!
