Twelve Dives of Free Stuff, Bargains and a Cool Dive Watch

12 dives intro1000

It's Christmas. That's probably not escaped your notice because according to the shops, it's been Christmas since about June. Last year.

But we've entered into the Christmas spirit with a review of everything we've been doing for the last few years, with the added bonus of a free subscription to DIVE Magazine every day for the next 12 days starting tomorrow, and if you follow all of the 12 DIVES OF CHRISTMAS, then a chance to win a scuba diving watch from Chris Benz worth £430.

Free Subscription

All you have to do to win a free subscription is like and follow us on social media. Like and follow us on Facebook (@DigitalDive), Twitter (@DiveMagazine) or Instagram (@DiveMag) and then like the post, share it, re-tweet it or hashtag it and every day we'll pick a winner at random and add you to the subscriber list. You'll get a year's free subscription to our quarterly print magazine, wherever you are in the world, and a free subscription to our DIVE Live app, so you can always keep up-to-date with the latest news, information and advice from DIVE – normally worth £22.99

Watch Competition

To win the Chris Benz Chronograph 300m, you need to follow the 12 DIVES OF CHRISTMAS, posts on our website, like them all on social media, and collect the answers to the 12 questions that will be revealed once you've  logged-in or registered to our site. It's completely free, and we'll only use your e-mail address to add you to our newsletter mailing list.

Each question is multiple choice, and to enter the competition, you need to take the first letter of each correct answer, and rearrange them to spell out the name of a common marine species. We'll give you the final clue and information on how to enter the competition on the last day. The answers to some of the questions can be found in one or more of the articles we've linked to on each day.

10 Per Cent Suscription Discount

There really is no catch! If you're not lucky enough to win the prizes, then we're offering a Christmas discount on a subscription to our print and digital edition for everybody who has been following the articles. Follow the link to our online store and enter the discount code you will find in each of the 12 days.
