  The Great Lakes Shipwreck Preservation Society announces the 12th annual Upper Midwest Scuba & Adventure Travel Show. For over a decade the nonprofit organization Great Lakes Shipwreck Preservation Society has sponsored Minnesota’s only Scuba Show. Now in our 12th year the expanded show is bigger and better then ever before. From wrecks to tech, travel to apparel, visitors from beginners to professionals will find something to enjoy at the UMSAT Show.

The show was held at the beautiful Northland Inn all suites hotel located in the Northern Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Park. The weekend starts with a social gathering Friday night.

Our Saturday speaker lineup included extraordinary industry professionals Dr. Phil Nuytten and Dr. John Broadwater as well as presentations by a Great Lakes shipwreck explorer, world class divers, mariners, instructors, and photographers. Discover SCUBA and Discover Rebreathers classes will be held in the hotel pool on Saturday.

  Spend a day exploring the oceans, Great Lakes shipwrecks, and exotic dive destinations. Shop the best of Minnesota’s scuba shops, meet representatives, plan your next vacation or class, and ask questions all in one location. Then top off the day with a banquet, again featuring guest speaker Phil Nuytten.

  Speakers include ...
  Dr. Phil Nuytten, creator of the world famous Newt Suit, a submarine that you wear, well known for captivating audiences in retelling his adventures.
  Dr. John Broadwater will share his experiences as he directed seven major expeditions to the famous Civil War ironclad warship USS Monitor.

It was fun to see many of you at the show today. I can't wait for mid April and a new dive season to start again.

Well I am not currently ice diving so mid-April is about the earliest I can out. I am fine in 42-45 degree water with my wetsuit as I do not have dry suit and I do not think my reg setup is good for ice diving either although I could be wrong.
