The Dive Center in Hall 12 is a diving paradise that is both fascinating and open for participation. Try-out diving lessons allow you to get a feel for the diving sport, or alternatively, take a lesson in the art of apnoea diving. Mermaiding teaches you how to move through the waves like a mermaid or aquarian. On stage, exhibitors and the partner countries of boot present themselves, and in Halls 12 and 13 you can directly book your next diving holiday.
