    The SCUBA Show At The Long Beach Convention Center

    It’s once again time to check out the annual SCUBA Show at the Long Beach Convention Center.

    I decided to stay away from the lectures this year unlike last year, as I did not find them too interesting for a destitute, local beach diver who can’t afford to travel.

    The Scuba Show.

    The SCUBA Show banner is green – probably to resemble the crappy conditions here lately.

    Lots of floor space.

    It was pretty easy to get lost – lots of displays.

    California Wreck Divers.

    The California Wreck Divers had a booth.

    A little display from the Newbern wreck off of Old Marineland.

    Dive equipment, dive travel packages, SCUBA charities and various other odd booths, like beef jerky and hand lotion, covered the enormous convention floor.

    I saw many of my old and new diving friends, so beyond the $12 entrance fee, $10 parking and $7 beers I would say it was worth it to kill a few hours here again.

    1. The Scuba Show completely skipped my mine! I only had it pinned to my poster board, written on my calendar, discount coupon in my glove box and received two post cards in the mail! Well.. there’s always next time.
