Deep wreck explorer Yana Stashkevich at GO Diving Show ANZ


Yana Stashkevich

Experienced technical CCR, cave, mine, and wreck diver Yana Stashkevich is rapidly making a name for herself when it comes to exploration dives, and she will be giving an enthralling presentation about her exploits on the Tech Stage at the GO Diving Show ANZ in September.

She was a member of the Vaggfjellan XI expedition exploring the cave system located beyond the Arctic Circle, with an entrance on a slope of a Norwegian fjord, and she was a rebreather diver on the Underwater Filming & Research (UFR) project team documenting some of the world’s best preserved wrecks in Greece.

Currently, Yana is actively involved in deep wreck exploration projects in the Aegean Sea, and promoting the maritime heritage of Greek waters.

Over the past ten years she has dived in over 35 destinations across three continents, all while balancing a career as a full-time global marketeer. She is currently working for the world’s most-valuable whisky brand, The Macallan.

UK-based Yana has an infectious amount of energy and enthusiasm and is a regular speaker and coach – she is passionate about inspiring people to push their boundaries and pursue their passion, whatever it may be.

The GO Diving Show ANZ

This annual event, taking place this year on 28-29 September at the Sydney Showground at the Olympic Park, is aimed at showcasing the very best of our underwater world to everyone from raw novices who are either contemplating getting into diving, or have completed their entry-level courses, to advanced divers, right through to technical divers and veteran CCR divers.

There are an array of stages – the Main Stage, the Photo Stage, the Australia/New Zealand Stage, the Inspiration Stage and the Tech Stage – that will play host to dozens of speakers from around the world, as well as a host of interactive features to suit young and old, from VR diving experiences, trydives, a demonstration pool, Bruce the rodeo shark, mermaids, and much more.

Surrounding the stages and features will be a broad range of exhibitors, from tourist boards and tour operators to resorts, liveaboards, training agencies, retailers, manufacturers, and conservation organisations.

The 2024 GO Diving Show UK, now in its fifth year, attracted more than 10,000 attendees over the weekend, and spanned an area of 10,000 sq m of exhibition space, and the Australia and New Zealand variant aspires to reaching this level in coming years.

Parking is also free and the venue is easy to get to with plenty of transport options, so get the dates in your diary now and prepare for an epic weekend celebrating all forms of diving.
