Dive into Technical Diving in the British Isles

Get ready for an exciting weekend ahead as the new tech conference,, is set to take place in the UK on the 25th of November 2023.

If you haven’t yet made plans for the upcoming weekend, this event might be just what you’re looking for.

-- Advertisement -- divers24 UK is a unique conference designed to spotlight the remarkable range of technical diving opportunities that the British Isles have to offer. The event will be hosted in Plymouth and promises to be a celebration of the year’s best expeditions, with a special emphasis on new exploration and discoveries.

In keeping with our commitment to make technical diving accessible to as many enthusiasts as possible, we’ve kept the costs low. The conference will also include a social gathering on Saturday evening for those who wish to network and share stories.

We also extend a warm invitation to teams conducting exceptional expeditionary diving around the British Isles to come forward and share their experiences at This is your chance to tell the world about your underwater adventures!

You might wonder why the conference is named ‘Guz’. The term ‘Guz’ has a rich historical connection to Devonport Dockyard in Plymouth, often referred to by sailors in the olden days as simply “The Yard”. Some believe that ‘Guz’ is derived from the Hindi word for the measurement of cloth, roughly equivalent to a yard. Over time, “The Yard” was further shortened to “Guz”.

Today, Plymouth is fondly known as ‘The Ocean City’, and it plays host to a diverse community of divers ranging from recreational to technical, commercial to military, and even a few unconventional ones! With its mile-long breakwater shielding the city from harsh Atlantic storms and a deep water channel leading to Devonport Dockyard, diving in Plymouth is possible in almost any weather condition, offering depths up to 45m right from the shore. conference

After a day of exploration beneath the waves, divers often indulge in a “run ashore” to local pubs and the gin distillery. This has led to an alternative interpretation of ‘Guz’ as deriving from the term ‘Guzzle’, reflecting the sailors’ hearty indulgence in food and drink upon returning to Devonport Dockyard after months of abstinence.

With such a vibrant diving community and rich maritime history, we believe Plymouth, or “Guz”, is the perfect venue to showcase a fantastic year of technical diving. So mark your calendars and join us at for an unforgettable dive into the world of technical diving in the British Isles!
