The readership of The Journal of Diving History is worldwide in scope. It is now mailed to divers in 40 countries, including Russia and China, and is the official publication of the Historical Diving Societies of the United States, Canada and Mexico In an effort to improve the quality of The Journal of Diving History magazine, the Board of Directors has approved a sponsorship program for the funding of The Journal of Diving History.

In recognition of their support, sponsors will have their logos displayed in color on one-tenth of the back cover and a full-color promotional ad in each of the quarterly issues. Ad size is dependent upon sponsorship level (see back of this page for ad sizes and cost). They will also receive acknowledgment on the HDSUSA web site and will be recognized as sponsors in our dive show booths. We display at most major consumer and trade show in the United States. Our unique booth attracts a lot of attention.

Help us preserve the history of our industry. Please consider a tax-deductible sponsorship donation to The Journal of Diving History in your annual budgeting. You may e-mail us at or call us at 805-934-1660 ext 4.
