It’s the most wonderful time of the year for a ScubaRadio ScubaCruise with Explorer Ventures!

December 8-15, 2018 join us onboard the Turks & Caicos Explorer II.

A Turks and Caicos liveaboard adventure with Explorer Ventures is awesome by itself. However, we add a ScubaRadio broadcast from the boat and some very unique Caribbean Christmas themed surprises to kick it up a notch! Joe3_570

Celebrating the season on and under the sea will brighten the spirit of every diver looking to be filled with Christmas cheer! (as food and alcohol are included!)

Listen to our last ScubaRadio ScubaCruise broadcast from the Turks and Caicos and picture yourself doing the same!

Maler family winners
Lauderdale-By-The-Sea resident Francisco Rizzo, and his dad, Frank, caught this 5.6lbs lobster in 12 feet of water off the Town's beach. It was the biggest bug bagged in the 2017 Great Florida Bug Hunt!  

Catch up to 12 lobsters per day at BugFest!

GREAT FLORIDA BUGHUNT DETAILS!

The Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea celebrates Florida's lobster mini-season with BugFest, our annual bug hunting dive festival!

Sponsored by Reef Safe Sun, this year's event is July 24-29, 2018and features a concert on Saturday, July 28 that benefits Diveheart , a non-profit that teaches adults and children with disabilities how to scuba dive.

Unlike the Florida Keys, there's lots to do in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea besides hunting lobsters during mini-season. We have great beachfront hotels at low summer rates, fun public plazas with kids games, quaint shops and pubs — all just a short stroll from your town hotel.

Mini-season divers can also bag up to 12 bug per day outside Monroe County! You can confirm that by checking the latest Florida Fish & Wildlife lobster mini-season regulations.

During BugFest we are giving away $20,000 in cash, dive gear prizes, hotel stays and trips, which includes the great trips you could win by supporting  the great work Diveheart does by buying a raffle ticket. Divers who enter the Great Florida Bug Hunt receive a raffle ticket for every lobster they catch! You may not bag the biggest bug, but you could still go home with a  super prize.

Online registration for the Great Florida Bug Hunt is open. Please note: Even though you must check the PayPal option to get to the payment page, you can still pay by credit card. The contest fee is $20. Divers receive a free BugFest Goody Bag and BugFest T-shirt.

This year's BugFest event includes:

– The Great Florida Bug Hunt (July 25 & 26). You can win a regulator, dive tank or other great prizes, even if you don't catch any bugs!

– A free lobster hunting seminar at 6PM on Tuesday, July 24 at Plunge Beach Hotel. The 1-hour seminar is taught by author and lobster hunting expert Jim “Chiefy” Mathie, a retired Deerfield Beach firefighter. Chiefy will be giving away five of his books on lobster hunting!

– A Mini-Season Kickoff Party at Plunge's beachside pool and bar at 7PM on Tuesday, July 24. Meet the ScubaRadio mermaids and enjoy a free Miami Pale Ale beer, courtesy of Gold Coast Scuba, while listening to trop rock music provided by the Scuba Cowboy!

– BugFest Mini-Season Awards Party and Lobster Chef Contest starting at 6PM on Thursday, July 26th. The event will feature the Scuba Cowboy  and some amazing lobster balloon creations. The chef competition starts at 6PM. We start giving out the dive awards at 7:30PM.

– A wreck diving workshop on Saturday, July 28 with wreck diving legend John Chatterton (Shadow Divers and Pirate Hunters). This includes two wreck dives on Sunday, July 29th.

– A concert to benefit Diveheart starting at 6:30PM on Saturday, July 28 in Anglin's Square.

– If you have questions about Florida's lobster mini-season or BugFest, call Steve at 954-640-4209 or e-mail him at steved@lbts-fl.gov.

ScubaRadio – KLOS carbon fiber guitar seen soon on a surface interval near you!

Greg The Divemaster has always noodled on a guitar over the years. He loves to join his musician friends like the Scuba Cowboy when an extra 6-string is available and strum away those long surface intervals when traveling around the world for ScubaRadio. However, the size and weight of bringing along an extra guitar is difficult to justify. Plus the salty deck of a boat or the humidity surrounding many of these exotic dive destinations can easily damage a quality instrument.

A solution finally came when Greg stumbled across KLOS guitars on Kickstarter a few months back. This lightweight, portable and almost indestructible carbon fiber guitar appeared to be a cool and unique new option for someone like Greg or anyone else who likes to travel with a nice guitar. After reaching out directly to KLOS, he was sold and commissioned the first ScubaRadio logo'd carbon fiber guitar ever made. (Actually, it's one of the first KLOS guitars to ever have a carbon fiber logo period!)

The result debuted at DEMA 2017 as seen below and will now travel with Greg around the world on his ScubaRadio diving adventures! Check out KLOS guitars and know Greg The Divemaster gives them 2 big fins up!…with or without the logo. 😉

Check out HOUR1 of the 11-11-17 edition of ScubaRadio to hear Greg talk more about the new ScubaRadio KLOS guitar.

Don’t be late to DEMA 2017 and ScubaRadio 20 year anniversary celebration!

This is a very special DEMA show this year in Orlando November 1-4 as ScubaRadio celebrates 20 years and still suckin' on-air!

Join Greg The Divemaster and friends at the DEMA show entrance around 9:30 each morning. The music, games and giveaways will continue up to opening of the DEMA exhibit show floor at 10.

This will likely be one of the most memorable highlights from DEMA 2017 and appropriate for ScubaRadio's 20 year anniversary celebration! So don't be late….and we apologize in advance. 😉

ScubaRadio sponsors are being extra generous this year. Expect free liveaboard trips with Explorer Ventures, exotic dive packages, cool dive gear, and much more to be up for grabs!

Cap off each DEMA day at 4pm in the Bahamas isle with the ScubaRadio-Bahamas Junkanoo Happy Hour party! Even more big trip giveaways and rumors of Free Rum Punch circulate for this annual event. So we highly suggest you be in the Bahamas isle by 4pm if you find yourself a bit thirsty at the end of the day.

ScubaRadio, 20 years and still suckin’ on-air!

In case you missed it, the April 1st 2017 broadcast was a very special show for our ScubaRadio crew. Twenty years ago that day we started the world's first radio show devoted to diving….no foolin'.

However, that didn't keep us from a little foolishness as we offered up the world premier of ScubaRadio, 20 years and still suckin' on-air! This new off broadway production takes you on a trip through ScubaRadio's past, present, and future. It was recorded in front live audience of dive industry dignitaries immediately following the end of the Beneath the dive show in Secaucus New Jersey (off Broadway).

The event was shared with the rest of the world at the end of our 20 year anniversary show. For those with a short attention span, here's a clip that gets right to the good stuff….enjoy!
