Scuba Divers Federation of South Australia Events
SDFSA holds events throughout the year to bring together divers, snorkelers and all others interested in the sport and the marine environment. In addition, we occasionally list events of interest to our members.
SDFSA at Science Alive! 19, 20, 21 November at the Adelaide Showgrounds
SDFSA will be there, in partnership with Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries. We will be promoting diving for science and recreation to the next generation of scuba, freedivers and snorkellers. Tickets are available at https://tickets.lup.com.au/science-alive-adelaide?cat=CAT-REGISTRATION.
SDFSA Mini Scuba Week, March 2021
In response to the pandemic, rather than hosting several large events, the SDFSA took our marquee out to where divers gather — Edithburgh and Port Noarlunga. Sadly we had to postpone a Rapid Bay event due to poor conditions. We were also supporting the Dive for Cancer gala dinner to announce the SDFSA Lifetime Members awards, also postponed to later this year.
Science Alive! 2020, Nov. 6-8
The SDFSA had a booth at Science Alive! next to Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries. As a volunteer community organisation, we were given free exhibition space, tables and signage. This was our first time to exhibit at Science Alive — it was a fantastic experience, a chance to introduce young people to the role of scuba in marine science and archaeology and an opportunity to connect with people who hadn’t been in the water for a while but were interested in taking up the sport again. Our thanks to the organisers for their generous support. We will be back in 2021!
SA Scuba Week 2019
The inaugural SDFSA SA Scuba Week was held from 17th– 23rd of November 2019. It was established to bring together the South Australian SCUBA, free-diving and snorkelling community to promote camaraderie, to showcase our sport in order to encourage others to participate, and to celebrate South Australia’s unique marine and freshwater environments for diving.
Read here for our brief report on the outcomes of the event. Based on its success, the SDFSA hopes to repeat the event in 2021.
