Our first ‘Venturer of the Year’ and the winner is... 

2018 marks Explorer Ventures successful launch of ‘Venturer of the Year,’ a grand prize contest giveaway in collaboration with ScubaRadio. 

Our exciting new Venturer of the Year contest offered DEMA participants the chance to compete in lively scuba-related games to enter the grand prize finale contest, or to win one of our daily liveaboard trip giveaways. Each morning at the warm-up show, Greg the Divemaster from ScubaRadio hosted friendly mini-games where audience members competed in snorkel shootouts (contestants aimed to hit a bullseye with a soft dart), as well as a giant inflatable ring toss and a key ring swing. On the final Friday afternoon of DEMA, we held our grand finale contest to crown our Mr. or Ms. ‘Venturer of the Year.’ The competition was steep as the winner competed against 4 other participants to win a long-distance snorkel shootout and take home the amazing grand prizes, valuing over $7,000 USD. {Scroll to bottom of the page for contest gallery and winner announcements}
