Welcome to the website of the ScubaFests, exciting events revolving around the sport of diving (recreational and technical) that aim to celebrate all that is great and good about the British scuba scene.
The ScubaFests are open to divers and non-divers, with plenty going on to keep certified enthusiasts and those looking to get into the sport fully occupied. Expect RIB shuttles and charter boats heading out to nearby dive sites, trydive sessions for total newbies, along with sessions on sidemount and rebreathers for those looking to expand their horizons, beachcombing expeditions for the kids (and the young at heart!), underwater photography splash-in competitions, the chance to trial equipment from major manufacturers, plus much, much more.
Furthermore, once everyone is out of the water, the après-dive festivities continue long into the night, with hog-roasts, curry and chilli nights, live bands and fancy-dress parties bringing all attendees together in one big, happy family.
Organised by SITA (Scuba Industry Trade Association), the ScubaFests are actively supported throughout the industry, meaning if you are already a certified diver, it doesn’t matter if you gained your qualification with BSAC, PADI, SAA or SSI, you are more than welcome to join in the fun and games and will find plenty of willing dive buddies.
There are two ScubaFests in 2014 – Cornwall ScubaFest over the Bank Holiday weekend in early May (3-5 May), and Anglesey ScubaFest in the middle of the summer holidays (16-17 August). Click below to find out more about both events.
