Celebrating 44 years may not seem like a major event in the scale of things, but the aqualung was only invented 67 years ago, and became commercially available in france three years later. But scuba diving as a recreational sport really only began 55 years ago - so 42 years of dive publishing means we’ve been around a very long time!

For over four decades Sportdiving Magazine has consistently informed its readers about the best dive destinations worldwide by publishing reports from real dive travellers. Sportdiving features stories and articles from industry experts covering the hottest new destinations, technical diving, critter and species specials, digital photography, wreck diving, natural history, news and issues, equipment, and much more.

To this day Sportdiving Magazine remains the longest established scuba diver magazine in the Asia/Pacific region. It’s also now the only Australian owned-and-published scuba title with international readership, and one of a handful of dive magazines worldwide still owned and published by divers.
