Since 2018, The Underwater Tour has presented and promoted a like-minded group of ethical internationally acclaimed professional underwater photographers traveling together, sharing their incredible images live on theatre stages to audiences around the country in a week-long annual touring speaker series.

A natural extension of the Underwater Tour, we launched our supporting international underwater photography competition in 2020, The Underwater Tour Awards.  We were delighted with the high calibre of submissions received in our first year.  The finalists’ gallery took us on a remarkable visual tour, showcasing the fine work of competing underwater wildlife photographers from 13 different countries.
