FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (March 26, 2019) – The National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI) Worldwide returns to Florida’s Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center April 27-28, 2019, for the 12th Annual Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo.
The Blue Wild is south Florida’s premier ocean adventure and watersports expo that features one of the most diverse and passionate crowds of exhibitors, speakers, and attendees of all ages.
One of the many exciting attractions at this year’s event is the emphasis on NAUI freediver training at booth #306.
NAUI recognizes that individuals have different levels of ability and interests. It is for this reason that NAUI offers a variety of training programs at all levels to include recreational and competitive training goals.
“Given its commitment to quality instruction, NAUI’s presence within the freediving community and at The Blue Wild expo is exponential,” said Dan Semrad, NAUI Freediving Coordinator. “We are excited to use this event as a platform to spread NAUI’s mission of ‘Dive Safety Through Education’ both to interested scuba divers and freedivers and to ensure that students receive the best and safest instruction available.”
Spanning 65,000 square feet, the two-day, indoor event attracts 5,000 attendees and over 150 exhibitors that specialize in fishing and spearfishing, scuba and freediving, surfing and paddle boarding, marine art, underwater photo and video, adventure travel, beach apparel, boats, personal watercraft, and more.
Daily educational seminars and workshops are scheduled throughout the weekend and taught by world-class experts and celebrity-speakers like TV/movie personality Manny Puig; Chris Gillette, underwater photographer and GatorBoy; Vinnie LaSorsa, fisherman and Captain for Jimmy Buffet; Ryan Myers, National Spearfishing Champion; Dr. Daryl Wong, expert spearo and custom speargun builder, and many other personalities. Topics include fishing stories, travel advice, freediving instruction, photography tips, fish filleting demos, speargun rigging, knot-tying, and more. The popular Kids Zone offers free face painting, art classes, and crab races – something for the whole family.
Entry is $20 at the door (children 12 and under are free) and includes a free goodie bag (while supplies last) and free entry to the Saturday night After-Party, which takes place in the second-floor VIP lounge.
