The Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo continues to flourish and is approaching its 10th year -- exceeding 65,000 square feet, 160 exhibitors, and 5,000 attendees! What started as a small spearfishing charity event has evolved into a full-grown Ocean Adventure Expo. It not only includes freediving and spearfishing, but also scuba, marine art, underwater photography and videography, lobstering, paddle boarding, water toys, kayaks, and more. The popular Kids Zone has face painting, art classes, and crab races – something for the whole family.

The Expo is known for a high-energy and fun vibe, as well as one of the youngest attendee demographics in the industry. The diverse crowd includes visitors and exhibitors from all over the world. This may have something to do with Fort Lauderdale’s desirable and central location. Also, divers can take advantage of the year-round good weather and get in the water.

Attendees love the variety of celebrity speakers and hands-on workshops. Past speakers include the “who’s who” of the underwater world. This includes freedivers such as William Trubridge and Umberto Pelizzari, Gator Boys Chris Gillette and Manny Puig, and diving pioneers Stan Waterman, Art Pinder, and Dr. Eugenie Clark. Workshops for the next show include: Working your GoPro, Lionfish Cook-off, Yoga for Divers, and more.
