During the 2019 Scuba Show convention on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5, instructors with the Go Dive Now pool tour offered free scuba-diving opportunities to the public at their indoor-pool exhibit.

From kids to adults to seniors, the public donned scuba-diving equipment and took a breath of fresh air from beneath the waters. The Go Dive Now Pool is produced by the nonprofit Diving Equipment & Marketing Association (DEMA). Certified instructors guided residents inside a 30-foot, 15,000-gallon pool. Along with the typical gear, attendees were also welcome to use a diver-propulsion vehicle, which allowed users to utilize the water as a form of jet to boost themselves underwater and maneuver at will.
