Nanaimo Diving Promoted

Nanaimo Represented at 
2012 Dive & Travel Expo, Tacoma

The Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation (NEDC) is pleased to announce that the Harbour City will once again be represented in Tacoma this coming weekend, April 21-22 at the 2012 Dive & Travel Expo.

“The Dive & Travel Expo is a fantastic venue for exposing the incredible diving opportunities we have here in Nanaimo,” says AJ Hustins, Chair of the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation. “Whether you are interested in exploring one of the three artificial reefs in our waters or snorkeling with the seals off Snake Island, Nanaimo is a must-see for divers of all types and should not be missed.”

Scuba diving in Nanaimo is second to none. Divers in search of an unforgettable experience should visit the HMCS Saskatchewan. This 366-foot navy destroyer was sunk off the shores of Nanaimo to create an artificial diving reef. Also off Nanaimo is the HMCS Cape Breton, a retired Canadian Supply Ship, which is now recognized as the World's Largest Artificial Upright Reef. Scuba Diving is one of many reasons visitors choose Nanaimo.

The Tacoma Dive & Travel Expo is happening this Saturday and Sunday at the Greater Tacoma Trade & Convention Centre. With over 300 booths to explore, the show will introduce divers to the the very latest in scuba diving. This year’s event will also host 50+ free seminars on everything from underwater photography to first aid. Visitors to the show will get a chance to update their diving skills, discover great new innovations and be inspired by divers who will share their experiences. Nanaimo’s Dive booth will be #307 at the show.
