Scubaverse team members, Nick and Caroline, launched their new book, Wild Dives, last week at a lively event in London.
Hosted by Ocean Leisure Cameras, Nick and Caroline invited friends, family & colleagues to an event to celebrate their latest book. The book features a host of their diving anecdotes from around the world, from diving with sharks in The Bahamas, to finding the cutest and tiniest nudibranch in the Philippines, to riding a submarine in Barbados. The final chapter is a more sobering look at the effects of plastic on our oceans and marine life. Sober is not a word that could be used, however, about the evening itself!
Teams from The Bahamas and Barbados tourist boards were on hand to provide wonderful rum punch, whilst the Philippines brought a taste of their country with a fantastic buffet, as well as nibbles. The room was buzzing with talk of diving, marine life and the travel.
The team from the Philippines also provided VR goggles so that guests could experience the underwater world on offer around these wonderful islands. One of Caroline’s highlights from the evening was watching her mum experience the coral reefs and manta rays!
With limited copies of the book available on the night, it was soon a sell out. This did not put an end to the proceedings though, with guests enjoying themselves well into the night. Nick and Caroline said: “We want to thank all those that came along on the evening to support us. We are thrilled with the book and this was the perfect evening to celebrate its arrival in the UK.”
Wild Dives is now available from all good bookshops!
