The event promises deep discounts on new and used diving accessories and garb, which visitors can don for test swims in a nearby pool to make sure it will fit in the ocean. Lucky pseudo-duckies take home door prizes awarded every hour. An underwater photo expo shows off subsurface scenery, and conservation organizations educate expo-goers on pressing environmental issues. Visitors can cool off with tasty snow cones, or they can find out if it’s possible to suck barbecue through a snorkel (not included in this deal).
Scuba Divers Market & Expo
Now in its 38th year, the annual Scuba Divers Market & Expo fills the open-air Landolt Pavilion with a sprawl of new and used diving equipment and accessories for one day only. In addition to product demonstrations, exhibitors plan to be on-hand to reveal the year's newest dive computers and which flipper designs pair best with a summer scarf. Door prize-drawings take place throughout the day, offering a chance to win a variety of items, including a Weber grill. The expo also offers up ways for visitors to find emotional of physical sustenance, whether by donating used diving gear at a consignment table or snacking on dishes from some of Houston's favorite local food trucks.
