About Us

Submerge Publishers presents a bimonthly South African scuba diving magazine that sets forth to enhance the scuba diving community and the industries indirectly involved in the sport of scuba diving. The first edition was introduced to the scuba diving market at the end of July 2006. The magazine content is designed to be innovative and display interesting and “everyday” diving topics. It is a lifestyle magazine for divers to enjoy with family and friends. The introduction of themed editions brings a whole new dynamic to the content of the magazine. Whether it be image portfolios from the most esteemed photographers, tips on dive safety, interesting industry news or just fun light-hearted reading, SUBMERGE leaves its readers with the same good feeling that diving brings to their lives. SUBMERGE is enhanced by its online sister magazine, Scubatainment, which was successfully launched in June 2012. The benefits of advertising with SUBMERGE are linked to this international online publication.

SUBMERGE Magazine (ISSN 1819-7558) is financially and editorially independent. It is enhanced with the support of and contributions from the diving community and other role-players in and around the industry, but is not affiliated in any way to these bodies. SUBMERGE Magazine strives to foster an awareness of various diving aspects and encourages the growth of a safe and enjoyable pastime. SUBMERGE Magazine is published six times a year by Submerge Publishers, an independent organisation owned by its partners.
