Seminar Schedule

Entertaining and Educational Seminars will be Held Daily

Watch, Listen and Learn From the Industry’s Top Experts

History, adventure, marine life, diving physiology, underwater photography, local dive spots, foreign travel, seafood preparation, marine conservation and more. The speakers know their topics and love to share them with you. Seminars are very popular with show-goers.

Seminars, presentations and workshops run throughout the show. Day passes for seminars are $25 and may be purchased at the info desk upon arrival. Cash or credit card is accepted. Discounted day and weekend packages may be purchased in advance for a limited time online. Click below to find out more. Many seminars are free to the public and do not require a seminar pass. These are agency member updates or dive companies promoting their products and services.

Our new schedule is interactive! Click the title of a seminar to see the description. You can also add sessions to your calendar or share them with one click. The seminars are organized by color and time – blue seminars represent Scuba Show sessions requiring a paid seminar pass (see below for details), yellow seminars are free presentations put on by Divers Alert Network, green seminars are free presentations put on by exhibitors, and red seminars are workshops requiring pre-registration (see description for information on how to register).
