Members of the Fourth Estate, welcome to our press page. Here we have information that you can use when researching Just Add Water - The Underwater Magic Show.
Just Add Water is an a brand new spectacle which invites the audience into a truly immersive world of magic. performed in the world's most beautiful indoor dive facility. The show is limited to twelve guests and is performed at ten meters below the surface. The only way to see the show is to dive in and join us in the magical world below the surface.
The show lasts about twenty minutes and features a number of intimate illusions performed right in front of your eyes. After the show guests are invited to explore the underwater environment which goes to depths of nearly one hundred feet. At that depth you can only exist with scuba gear. In fact the atmospheric pressure is more than three times what we experience on land.
What to expect:
It all starts today. Make your booking at the dive4life website for the evening of October 23rd. Regular dive charges apply but there is no extra fee for the show. That's right, no extra charge to be part of the world's first underwater magic show. Once you have made your reservation send dive4life an email letting them know that you want to see the show. They will reserve one of the limited spaces for you. Then come and enjoy.
The show begins with a five minute pre-show on the surface. There you will meet Martin and Paul. They will explain what will happen when we go below. Martin will perform something special for the guests while Paul goes below to prepare. Then it's dive time. The show takes place on a platform twenty feet below the surface. You will experience magic like you have never seen it before. Up close and soaking wet. If you have an underwater camera you will want to take pictures to capture this unique event.
Other shows have featured magicians performing underwater while guests watched through a window or on TV. This is the first show by divers for divers in our underwater world.
After the show explore the dive4life environment. More than three million liters of crystal clear water almost a hundred feet deep await your incursion.
