On The Fifth Dive of Christmas, My Buddy Gave to Me...

day5 nbannern

Well, folks, it's Christmas Day, and whoever you are and wherever you are, the team here at DIVE would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas, accompanied by some entirely guilt-free, shameless self-promotion!

We've been in print since 1995, and in the 22 years since then, we've seen a lot of changes. To the world, to our oceans, to dive gear and destinations, and, of course, to our team. It's not easy, keeping a print magazine on the shelves in the digital age, but a collection of great writers, photographers and editorial staff have kept us going where others might have fallen by the wayside.

In 2015 we re-launched with a 20-year special edition, printed on heavy art paper, a departure from the more traditional magazine format. If there is one consistent theme to the feedback we've received since then, it is the high quality of our print edition.

We're awfully proud of that, but we couldn't have done it without you - our readers and subscribers. We're a small team, but passionate about our subject matter and keen to spread the word about all that is diving related, from kit to conservation, dive skills to dolphins.

So thank you, from the bottom of our tanks, for sticking with us. Here are a few of the articles we've published in the print edition over the last couple of years and (shameless plug) there's plenty more where those came from if you check out the links to our DIVE shop.

Merry Christmas!
