Shearwater Spans the Globe

Shearwater Spans the Globe

We were very busy at Shearwater during the month of March. We managed to trot around the globe to 3 different trade shows: OZTek Dive Conference & Exhibition, Dive Resort Travel Shanghai, and Beneath the Sea.



The first stop on our journey was Sydney, Australia at the OZTek show on March 14th and 15th. Unfortunately we didn’t get to enjoy the warm weather or go for long walks on the beach as we were hard at work. We were excited to hang out with such an enthusiastic crowd and pleased to see more and more people become interested in the technical diving market.

DRT Shanghai

Our next stop was at the DRT Expo in Shanghai, China from March 20th to the 22nd.


It’s great to see the interest in the Asian market continue to grow and to spend time interacting with our overseas customers. We may not speak the language but we had no trouble communicating our shared passion for diving. Hiring some translators wasn’t a bad idea though!


Some divers were so excited to see us they couldn’t help but ask for an autograph. Check out Shearwater’s newest celebrity!

Beneath the Sea

The last stop on our journey was in Secaucus, New Jersey from March 27th to the 29th for Beneath the Sea. It definitely wasn’t as warm as the previous two shows but we still had fun showing off the Petrel 2 and NERD to some curious show goers.


(Here’s Christina and Curt showcasing the Petrel 2 and NERD.)

It was wonderful to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones. Christina was particularly excited to meet a young future diver at the booth.


All in all we had a wonderful time travelling around and meeting you guys face to face. If you missed out though check out the Dive Show Schedule below and come by and say hi if you have a chance!
