The Ultimate Dive Show

Diving {noun} The activity of exploring underwater.

A surreal experience where you can effortlessly move in three-dimensions, often cited as being the nearest you can get to flying. Have you ever harboured an innate desire to give it a go?

Now you can come and experience diving for the first time at the GO Diving dive show – and find a host of experts on hand to answer those questions you were perhaps afraid to ask. The Inspiration Stage will host talks aimed at dispelling some of the myths around diving, giving even more reasons why you would want to learn to dive. Come listen to BBC stars Andy Torbet and Miranda Krestovnikoff, from Beyond Bionic, The One Show, Coast, Wreck Detectives and Operation Iceberg, discussing how they got into diving, what they love about exploring beneath the surface, and hear about some of their underwater adventures.

 

Existing divers are also well catered for at GO Diving, with dedicated sections focusing on the disciplines of Underwater Photography and Technical Diving. Think your trim is up to scratch? Got your S-drills nailed? Navigation in the bag? Come and showcase your abilities at our interactive sessions – and see if you can beat the industry pros! There’s even an area for The Next Generation of divers, all those keen kids and talented teens already attracted to the underwater realm.

The dive show will be split across three days, the Friday being trade-only, and two consumer days over the weekend. The trade day will feature break-out rooms for seminars, member forums, etc, and there will be presentations on how to develop and improve your online presence for your dive centre/school, utilise social media more effectively, and so on.

 

Over the weekend, we’re looking to offer visitors an immersive experience into the world of diving! Booking to our 100sqm try-dive pool for a discover scuba, CCR or side-mount try dive.
