Visit our stand at Dive 2013 to win an AP Diving BCD
Visit stand No.530 at the Dive Show to win a fabulous AP Diving 'Commando Escape Sub Three Zero' BCD worth more than £300. All you have to do is enter the Scuba Tours Worldwide 'Name the Manta' Competition.
This beautiful female manta ray was first seen in the Maldives in 2007, when she was pregnant, and has been spotted a few times since - usually in Ari Atoll. She is currently known as 1850 D587 and we think she deserves a proper name, so we are running a Competition at the upcoming Dive 2013 show at the Birmingham NEC over the weekend of 26th and 27th October 2013. To enter, you just need to come along to our stand, No.530, and suggest a name by signing up for our newsletter! The lucky winner will be announced at the show before it closes on Sunday.
We have been running dive trips in the Maldives for 24 years now (amazing!) and we have built up extensive knowledge about the behaviour and migration patterns of manta rays. "The manta population in the Maldives migrates from one side of the atolls to the other, according to the season, so that they can feed in plankton rich water. We normally see manta on 'cleaning stations' and we know many dive sites where this cleaning behavioiur takes place" said Rob Bryning, owner of Scuba Tours Worldwide. "Anne-Marie, Cruise Director on our own liveaboard, the MV Sea Spirit, has a PhD in Manta Behaviour and Ecology in the Maldives and the manta to be named is one of hundreds that she has logged in her extensive database".
Rob Bryning will be giving two daily Exhibitor Seminars at the show in Ocean Theatre 2:-
12:45 “The Best of the Maldives – North to South”
13:25 “The Amazing Sharks of the Socorro Islands and the Wrecks of Truk Lagoon”
We will be launching an exciting new destination at the show, as well as promoting all our old favourites. So wherever you are thinking of diving next … come and chat to us ... and don't forget to enter the Competition!
Advance tickets can be bought on line, before midnight on 23rd Oct, for £9.50 instead of £12.50 on the door … and if there’s a group of you, you could save another £1 per ticket:-
