ScubaRadio brings Florida sunshine to Chicagoland!

The 40th anniversary of Our World Underwater in Chicago was a huge success!

Mermaids, live music with the Scuba Cowboy, and several big giveaways made the weekend a blast. ..including a spot on the next ScubaRadio ScubaCruise in the Turks and Caicos with Explorer Ventures liveaboards July 31 – August 7, 2010! Special thanks to ScubaRadio supporters and friends at Force Fins, Olympus underwater cameras, NANUK protective hard cases, and Mel Fisher's Treasures for making it all possible.
