PADI Will Be Active At The 2023 Scuba Show


PADI is a sponsor and will be exhibiting at the Scuba Show this coming weekend at the Long Beach Convention Center in California.

In addition to its main booth, the dive training agency will host a seminar on ocean stewardship as well as conducting introductory scuba sessions in the 15,000-gallon (56,781-liter) heated pool on the show floor.

According to PADI AWARE’s Campaign and Community Manager Jack Fishman:

“We are looking forward to sharing the incredible power scuba divers possess making a positive impact for the ocean right in their local community by making their dives count. We’ll be outlining how to become an Ocean Torchbearer, taking part in our Dive Against Debris program and other citizen science initiatives which you are uniquely qualified to engage in as a certified diver. Together, we can help turn the tides locally — and globally — for our shared blue planet.”

Fishman will be leading the “Making a Splash in Your Local Community” PADI seminar on Saturday, June 3 at 1:00 p.m. in the Seaside 5-A room at the Convention Center, which is open to anyone in attendance.

Those wanting to take their first breaths beneath the surface will have a chance to try scuba diving for the first time in the heated pool on the exhibit floor under the supervision of professional dive instructors. For those wishing to stay dry, PADI’s booth will be offering attendees the opportunity to “Live Unfiltered” and try a virtual reality diving experience.
