The 28th Annual Scuba Show Returns to Long Beach. Designed to spark curiosity, inspiration and excitement, the 28th annual Scuba Show will feature a weekend filled with fun and discovery at Long Beach Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday, June 6-7, 2015.
Along with $34,000 in door prizes to be given away, the Scuba Show will showcase nearly 300 exhibitors and passionate diving experts representing unique dive locations from around the world. As with every year, Scuba Show exhibitors are looking forward to talking one-on-one with Southern Californians. The 2015 will also feature entertaining and educational workshops and seminars all weekend covering topics such as history, adventure, marine life, diving physiology, underwater film and photography, local dive spots, foreign travel and marine conservation.
Returning as a Scuba Show favorite, the Scuba Chef Trevor Cook from California Diving News will teach how to “cook what you catch” and share his best sustainable seafood recipes by presenting live cooking demonstrations.
To further strengthen an already strong and passionate community, the Scuba Show will host an interactive community paint project. Similar to grid drawing, a whole photo is divided into small square chips and each attendee reproduces a small piece of the “canvas” to create a collaborative painting. The final, completed piece is sold and proceeds benefit the educational efforts of the Aquarium of the Pacific.
The Scuba Show film festival will highlight video footage and photo slide shows submitted by scuba divers from around the world. The film festival emphasizes some of the more unusual experiences of scuba diving such as remarkable underwater locales or activities. In the past, the film festival has shown everything from coral and manatee encounters to dives in Lake Tahoe and Truk Lagoon.
Perhaps the most anticipated event at Scuba Show is the annual Saturday Night Party at the beautiful Shark Lagoon at the Aquarium of the Pacific. This exciting, after-hours party is free to enter with a Scuba Show admission and will give attendees opportunities to have hands-on encounters with sharks, rays and crabs as well as opportunities to explore penguin and sea lion habitats. Food and drinks will be served and attendees will be delighted by a live performance of “The Ultimate Elvis Experience”. To top off the night, big-time prizes will be raffled and auctioned off to benefit the Aquarium of the Pacific.
The 2015 Scuba Show will take place on Saturday, June 6, from 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday, June 7, from 10 am to 5 pm at the Long Beach Convention Center, located at 300 E. Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802. Tickets are available online at scubashow.com/attendees/tickets and will also be sold at the door. One day tickets for the show range from $12 (exhibit hall) to $37 (exhibits plus seminars), and two day passes are $74. For discounted tickets, purchase online in advance.
