Panel talks: Celebrating women in diving at Go Diving Show UK


We love dive shows here at Girls that Scuba; they are amazing opportunities to meet more GTS members, see (and try on) new dive equipment, add new destinations to our bucket list and see old dive friends! 


It's only a few days into 2020 and we are already planning for our first dive show this year; Go Diving Show UK! In its second year Go Diving is already attracting a younger generation of divers and we are excited to be able to influence them with an amazing line up of female divers talking to on the main stage throughout the weekend.
