KUBI launch new Premier Dealer program




KUBI Dry Glove Systems & Expedition Products Launch the new Premier Dealer program.

The award-winning KUBI brand of diving products continues to be increasingly sought after by customers around the world. Recognising the importance of their global distribution partnerships, KUBI has worked closely alongside their dealers to develop a new program to offer improved service to all their valued customers.

Celebrating the program’s worldwide launch, a number of key dealers have been awarded the Premier KUBI Dealer status to recognise the high level of customer service they deliver supporting the KUBI products and brand. This new ‘stamp of quality’ also recognises the commitment of these dealers in maintaining availability of KUBI products for their customers. KUBI Premier Dealers will be featured prominently on the website, as well as being able to display their award in store.

Speaking about the launch of this new initiative, Managing Director of KUBI, Peter Wilson stated: “We have worked well with our worldwide dealers to increase the availability of the KUBI products and wanted to recognise key dealers who offer outstanding service to customers, as well as having our range of products & accessories available for their customers. Working closely with dealers is important to us, as KUBI believe in the power of the relationships we have with our worldwide customers and are always trying to improve our support to all. This program is just at the beginning, so we look forward to awarding Premier Dealer status to stores all around our global network during 2019.

Photo Gallery: Dive Fest Barbados



In our Gallery feature, we let the photos tell the story… Each Gallery showcases a selection of outstanding images on a chosen theme, taken by our Underwater Photography Editor Nick and Deputy Editor Caroline of Frogfish Photography. This time they reflect on their visits to the Caribbean Island of Barbados for the annual Dive Fest celebrations.

Dive Fest Barbados is a week of celebrating the marine life, diving and snorkeling this idyllic island has to offer. There are activities organised each day for all those that attend that include wreck diving, marine conservation, learning to dive, snorkeling and one an unusual dive for us – riding a submarine to the bottom of the Caribbean Sea! Dive Fest Barbados allows divers to get the very best out of a trip here, with plenty of diving, but also to sample the unique atmosphere, mouth-watering food and drink, stunning scenery and beautiful beaches.

Video Series: The CCMI Reef Lectures – Part 4 (Watch Video)



Introduced by Jeff Goodman

Never before since human beings have had major influence over our earths climate and environments, have we come to so close to the brink of global disaster for our seas and marine life. We need to act now if we are not going to crash headlong into irreversible scenarios.

A good start to this is understanding how the marine environment works and what it means to our own continued survival. We can only do this by listening and talking to those with the experience and knowledge to guide us in the right direction.

CCMI (Central Caribbean Marine Institute) are hosting an annual Reef Lecture series that is open to the general public and Scubaverse will be sharing those lectures over the coming months.

Part 4: Stop Whining! Life as an Ocean Ambassador; Ellen Cuylaerts

Ellen Cuylaerts shares her insights on how to act, practice what you preach and use your voice to contribute to constructive change. Ellen is a wildlife and underwater photographer and chooses to take images of subjects that are hard to encounter like harp seal pups, polar bears, orcas, beluga whales and sharks, to name a few. By telling the stories about their environment and the challenges they face, she raises awareness about the effect of climate change on arctic species, the cruel act of shark finning and keeping marine mammals in captivity.

During this seminar, Ellen will take you on a virtual trip and show you the stories behind the shots: how to get there, how to prepare, how to create the most chances to come home with a shot, and how to never give up!

Ellen Cuylaerts is an ocean advocate, underwater & wildlife photographer, explorer, and public speaker.
