The 28th Annual Scuba Show is returning to the Long Beach Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday, June 6-7, 2015.
If you are new to the world of scuba diving, an experienced diver or just curious about it, then this is the place for you. Unlike travel/adventure type shows, this is solely dedicated to the diving community.
The Scuba Show will showcase 300+ exhibitors and dive experts representing unique dive locations from around the world. As well as, Feature Film Festival, Cooking Demos, Community Art, entertainment, educational workshops and seminars, and much more.
Scuba Chef Trevor Cook from California Diving News, a Scuba Show favorite, will present live cooking demos and share his best sustainable seafood recipes.
Take part in an interactive community paint project, similar to grid drawing, where a whole photo is divided into small square chips. Each attendee reproduces a small piece of the collaborative painting. The final, completed piece will be sold and proceeds will benefit the Aquarium of the Pacific’s educational efforts.
The film festival will highlight video footage and photo slide shows submitted by scuba divers from around the world. The film festival will highlight the more unusual experiences of scuba diving, such as remarkable underwater locales or activities.
The annual Saturday Night Party will be held at the beautiful Shark Lagoon at the Aquarium of the Pacific. The after-hours party is free to enter with a Scuba Show admission. Attendees will have the to opportunity to have hands-on encounters with sharks, rays and crabs, as well as exploring penguin and sea lion habitats. Food and drinks will be served, a live performance of “The Ultimate Elvis Experience” and prizes will be raffled/auctioned to benefit the Aquarium of the Pacific.
I have my Advanced Open Water Diver Certification. It has been quite a few years since I have gone scuba diving, but after I attend this show that may change.
