The Scuba Show is a must-attend wonderland for all fans of underwater activities. Each year, scuba enthusiasts set out on a sojourn from around the world or as Plato would say “beyond the Pillars of Hercules”, to partake in the largest consumer Dive Expo in the United States.
Now in its 29th year, The Scuba Show is a two day event that takes place at the Long Beach Convention Center with hundreds of exhibitors, a continuous Underwater Film Festival, seminars and fantastic door prize drawings.
The opening night party kicked off with a bang as scuba show ticket holders made their way over to the Aquarium of the Pacific at the Shark Lagoon for live entertainment, cocktails, a raffle & silent auction and hors d’oeuvres under the stars.
This year, the first Lady of Diving, Zale Perry, best known for her role on the 1957 underwater television series Sea Hunt, received the coveted California Scuba Service Award.
The party was co-hosted by Roddenberry Adventures.
Marina Inserra, Miss California 2014 and Miss Scuba Queen USA 2016, sang the National Anthem.
