FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, May 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Islands of The Bahamas Announces: 10 Islands, 7 World-Famous Underwater Photographers, One week to Shoot.

Neal Watson, President of the Bahamas Diving Association explains the event: "We were looking for a way to explain the diversity of our dive product, and Stephen Frink is a long time friend of the Bahamas, so it seemed like a natural partnership. Mr. Frink has also graciously allowed all the photos and content that will be published in DAN's Alert Diver magazine to be republished in Mergulho Dive Magazine in Brazil, Tauchen Dive Magazine in Germany and Sport Diver Australia/Asia Dive Magazine covering the Pacific Rim, Australia and Tropical Asia markets. Worldwide coverage of this event, including the social media aspects will run into billions of impressions in 2014/2015."
Many resorts and dive operations are offering their services and facilities to make this ground-breaking event happen in the Bahamas. Without the strategic and financial support of the Grand Bahama Island Tourism Board, Bahama Out Islands Promotion Board, Bahamas Ministry of Tourism and Bahamas Dive Association, this event would not be possible.
