There’s two diver’s events coming up – Diver’s Day at The Aquarium of the Pacific and The SCUBA Show.
Too bad they can’t time these events with crappy conditions.
I haven’t been the The Aquarium on Diver’s Day, but I have been to the Aquarium.
If you can tolerate hundreds of screaming kids running around and $6 Budweisers, this may be the place to go.
They have a lot of interesting displays, including one of the Redondo Canyon – minus the trash.
I probably won’t be attending Diver’s Day, but I definitely will be at the SCUBA Show on Saturday, May 15.
I’ve been going for the last few years; the displays and seeing old dive friends – or at least people who act like they don’t hate me – makes it all worth while.
I didn’t find the seminars too informative, only because they were geared towards newer divers.
TIP: The beer stand is usually hidden in a corner near the food stand – to the right, as you walk in.
Save your empty cup and ask, “How much for a refill?”
You will often get a discount beer, as long as the money you pay goes in the bar tender’s tip jar.
