Visit Scubaverse (stand number 30) at this coming weekend’s GO Diving Show at the RICOH Arena in Coventry and you could be in with a chance of winning a dive holiday for two to Malaysia and Brunei!!!

Scubaverse has teamed up with Royal Brunei Airlines, Rawa Island Resort, Poni Divers, Radisson Hotels and Indepth Marketing & Tours to offer two people the chance to win the dive trip of a lifetime – to not one, but two fantastic dive destinations: Malaysia and Brunei!

Flying from London, the winners will first travel to Malaysia (via Brunei) to spend five nights in the idyllic setting of Rawa Island Resort, which is situated within the archipelago of the Sultan Iskandar Marine Park. Rawa Island Resort has everything – beautiful beaches, pretty beachfront villas, great food, and a house reef just metres off the shore. The dive centre is in the ideal location for shore dives, and within easy walking distance of the main resort and house reef.

Following their time at Rawa Island Resort, the winners will head back with a stop off at Brunei. Staying at the Radisson Hotel Brunei Darussalam, the winners will enjoy two days of diving with Poni Divers, the country’s only PADI Five Star Instructor Development Centre and watersports center offering jet-ski, banana boats, wakeboard and parasailing. The winners can enjoy a wide selection of shipwrecks and explore some of Borneo’s best wreck diving sites.

In addition to entering this amazing competition, come and have a chat with the Scubaverse team and pick up a copy of the latest edition of our premium quality, printed quarterly publication, Dive Travel Adventures. Meet members of our travel team, including Nick and Caroline Robertson-brown and Sean Chinn, who will be only to happy to talk about the dive destinations they have visited and will be on hand to offer hints, tips and advice on underwater photography.

There are lots of other reasons to spend your weekend at the GO Diving Show.

There will be dedicated stages in the disciplines of underwater photography, freediving and technical diving, with hosts of dynamic speakers discussing a wide range of subjects in talks, Q&A sessions, masterclass workshops and presentations. There’s even an area for The Next Generation of scuba divers – all those keen kids and talented teens already attracted to the underwater realm.
