Ready to learn something new? Or, perhaps, refresh a previously-learned subject? ScubaFest 2012 will have many presentations from which you may choose. We have a very special presentation scheduled for Friday evening and numerous presentations running in multiple rooms all day on Saturday and Sunday. We are bringing together a wide variety of interesting presenters with an exciting array of topics.
On Saturday and Sunday we will have several presentation rooms running simultaneously so you will have options from which to choose.
The travel destination presentations will range from close-to-home to international locations and you'll get to see great images of their special under-water and above-water treasures. There will be presentations on medical, public safety, history, training and safety topics to keep you updated for the safest diving possible. Technical diving presentations will offer information on many types of diving in which you may currently participate or may be considering. You'll get to hear about various types of equipment and how it can enhance your diving experience. The shipwreck presentations combine diving with history and help renew the sense of awe we feel when exploring the underwater world.
We are pleased to have the return of many excellent and vibrant presenters, as well as new faces to meet and enjoy.
The schedule of presentations will continue to expand so keep checking back for the most up-to-date information. Bios, Descriptions, Titles and Pics will be added to the Presentation Topics
