It is with heavy hearts that due to the current international health situation we have taken the necessary steps to postpone the Underwater Tour 2020 for this year. The safety and health of our audiences, speakers, partners and broader community near and far is of utmost importance.
We are therefore pleased to advise we have rescheduled our 2020 events to the dates of 13-20 May 2021. Our esteemed speakers and very valued tour partners have confirmed their ongoing presence and commitment. We will of course honour all purchased tickets for our new dates and have already personally contacted all current ticket holders.

Good News for Underwater Tour Awards
The Underwater Tour Awards international photography competition is well underway. We have made a couple of small changes brought about by the postponement of the tour event itself and we will notify existing entrants personally in the next 48 hours.
Winners will now be announced at Australian International Dive Expo 2020 (AIDE 2020) in Sydney July 31- August 2, 2020. We are also thrilled to announce that a showcase of Underwater Tour Awards images will be exhibited at AIDE, where visitors will be able to vote for their favourite image in the People’s Choice Award.
With the change to our winners’ announcement date, we have taken the opportunity to extend the deadline for entries to May 30, 2020. We will notify photographers who entered images to the competition before 12 March that they can swap out their entries if they wish to do so.
Our website and social media pages have been updated www.underwatertour.com.au These difficult times will no doubt pass and we look forward to brighter days ahead.
The Underwater Tour is an annual collaboration between Juliette Myers of IDM and Tim Hochgrebe of underwater.com.au, joined in 2020 by creative partners Darren Jew and Jasmine Carey from Finslap.
