photo and video contests

nick and caroline robertson-brownThe photo-journalists and owners of Frogfish Photography, Nick and Caroline Robertson-Brown, are offering the chance to join them on a workshop to South Africa in June 2016. Some spots on their trip to South Africa have been opened up to divers, underwater photographers and non-divers, to join the team on a dual centre trip in South Africa.

The tour is going to kick off with high adrenalin action at the Sardine Run. Get in the water and see all the action from the greatest shoal on earth. Dolphins, sharks, whales, gannets and seals all get in on this moving feast. With an aerial support team following the action from the sky, the group will head out to the best action areas. This part of the tour will also give you the opportunity to dive Aliwal Shoal for a day, at the start of the trip, to make sure all your equipment is working properly before the main event.

Then the Frogfish team will lead the group south to Cape Town for a week of exploring this amazing region. The itinerary for this week includes several wine tastings in an area famous for fine wines, a day photographing great white sharks, some land based wildlife watching and a day diving with 7 gill sharks too. All this whilst staying at both a vineyard retreat and also a nature reserve to ensure the best Wining & Diving trip possible.

With both the Frogfish team available for advice and tips on photography, this trip is open to all levels of photographer, but is not restricted to those with cameras, as there will be plenty to do in the water and on land to keep everyone happy. You can sign up for a single week or for both weeks – the choice is yours.

The trip is being organised by Hidden Depth Dive Tours. Departing UK on 19th June 2016.

Mares & SSI launch new promotion



SSI expands financial support to SSI Members worldwide. 

2020 has been an unusual and challenging year for the entire world, especially the diving and travel industry!  To weather the crisis, SSI immediately jumped into action to help Training Centers and Professionals around the world.  

In response to COVID-19, SSI launched the No Water, No Problem Campaign, put Final Exams online, and held hundreds of Webinars to train Professionals on how to use distance learning to teach the dry Specialties online. The FREE SCIENCE OF DIVING promotion resulted in SSI Training Centers worldwide register over 50,000 FREE DIGITAL KITS, funding more than $3.5 MILLION IN RETAIL VALUE. Additionally, SSI introduced an aggressive DOUBLE PRO REWARDS incentive to help SSI Professionals compensate 2020 Renewal Fees and reduce those for 2021. Currently, the WE WANT YOU Crossover promotion aims to fill the industry need for instructors and strengthen the entire SSI Professional community.

Now, in conjunction with Mares, SSI is launching the GO DIVING – PROTECT YOURSELF. OWN EQUIPMENT Promotion, which includes a FREE SSI EQUIPMENT TECHNIQUES DIGITAL KIT. This new campaign strives to motivate divers worldwide to go diving and buy equipment. Look for more information on this next retail support campaign within the next few days.

“These are just a few examples of how we have supported and are continuing to support our Training Centers, Professionals, and divers worldwide. To provide even more economic security and help in business recovery, WE WILL NOT INCREASE PRICES FOR 2021. While travel was restricted and some key resort areas completely locked down, SSI mainly focused on supporting domestic markets with retail-driven incentives. Now, in this next re-opening phase, we need to shift gear and assist resort markets that have no local diving community and are 100% dependent on the traveling diver. Therefore, SSI will grant certain special conditions and delayed payment options to specific resort markets which have been locked down for longer than six months or suffered from closed borders,” stated Guido Waetzig, SSI CEO.

Guido Waetzig, SSI CEO, explains further, “To financially support these needed investments which directly benefit SSI Members and to protect the health of our valuable members and staff, we will forego all 2021 Trade Shows over the next 12 months. Despite international uncertainty, every time we experience one of these events, the entire SSI Network emerges stronger and more resilient. Be assured, SSI is your trustful partner within the Diving Industry!”
