The SCUBA Show, the largest dive expo in the U.S. will take place May 30-31 (the weekend after Memorial Day) at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California. This is the 22nd year of this popular event. The show will consist of 76,000 square feet of diving related exhibits including new and revolutionary dive gear, travel pros (many offering show discounts), and diving experts. Several exhibitors also offer free drawings for valuable prizes.

Highlighting the exhibit hall will be a personal appearance by world famous artist Wyland. He will be doing a live painting during the show and exhibiting some of his finest artwork.

A continuous underwater film festival will be running in the exhibit hall on a three-story high screen and will feature films from around the world by over a dozen underwater imaging experts.

A full schedule of 33 seminars will garnish the weekend given by top diving experts Marty Snyderman, Dr. Milton Love, Bruce Watkins, Dale Sheckler, Tabby Stone MD, Ken Knezick, Ken Kurtis, Bonnie Cardone, and many more. Subjects covered include underwater photography and video, marine life, dive travel, and more.

Saturday night will feature a Casino party benefiting California Ships to Reefs, a non-profit organization sinking ships along the California coastline as artificial reefs. Highlight of the party will be the awarding of the California Scuba Service Award. Honoree for this year is Sal Zammitti, a fixture in California diving for over 40 years with his Central and Northern California Bamboo Reef dive stores.
