Mark Evans, editor-in-chief of the Scuba Diver media brand, presents an update on Scuba Diver magazine, and has some news ref the GO Diving Show.
With inland dive sites and dive centres not reopening until 29 March at the earliest, the March issue of Scuba Diver (#47) will be available in digital format only.
You can access the January (#45) and February (#46) digital issues now, and #47 will be available in March. The latest issue is jam-packed with content that will further whet your appetite for getting back into the water as soon as we can, including a showcase of the winners from the prestigious Underwater Photographer of the Year competition, although if you are anything like the Scuba Diver team, I don’t think you’ll need any more encouragement to get back under the surface!
Scuba Diver will be back into print as well as digital with the April (#48) issue. This will be available to pick up in your local dive centre, or if you have a print subscription, it will pick up where it left off with the April magazine, so you will still get your full complement of issues. If you fancy signing up for a subscription to kickstart your 2021 diving year, we have a special offer, where you can get the first two issues for £1
We look forward to getting back to diving in this country and further afield as the lockdown restrictions continue to be relaxed. And with life expecting to be returning to some sort of normality by the end of June, we are getting excited about the GO Diving Show, from 3-5 September, just after the kids return to school after the summer holidays. Everyone is looking forward to being able to meet with their friends and fellow divers, check out the latest equipment, plan for future dive trips, and find out more about dive training.
Steve Backshall – due back on screens shortly with his new series about sharks – will once again be headlining the main stage. It promises to be an action-packed weekend, and this year it is even better value for money – tickets are £15 per person for the entire weekend, and as little as £5 for group bookings.
In the meantime, look forward to seeing you at a dive site soon!
