Happy Holidays from DeeperBlue


Dear Diving Friends,

It’s nearing the end of 2022, time to hang up our fins for another year and spend time with family and friends.

Thank you for all your support – being part of our global community drives us to continue to strive to educate, inspire and inform divers worldwide.

The team has been working in overdrive this year – we published over 900+ news and feature articles on; shared 700+ inspiring daily images across our socials; got together with the global industry at DEMA Show (and ran a mini-edition of our famous party); kept the community engaged through our forums and Facebook groups, and generally loved keeping you informed, connected, and inspired over the year.

I’m proud of the team, our work, you…our community, and our readers.

If you enjoyed what we’ve been doing this year, please consider becoming a supporter or grabbing something from our official clothing store.  Every little bit helps at this time.

As usual, the team takes a well-earned break over the festive period and will return in January first thing.  However, please keep checking back before New Year, as our Photo Of The Year and Video Of The Year announcements are coming out next week.

Please stay safe… and I look forward to seeing you in 2023.
