What began 12 years ago as one event with 50 divers has now grown to 18 events across the nation giving more than 2,250 divers each year the opportunity to test dive DUI equipment.
DUI enthusiastically welcomes both new drysuit divers and old DUI friends, known as DOGs (DUI Owners Group), to a weekend full of diving, camaraderie and fun. It's a chance to learn new things, meet new people and share a common passion for diving.
Our 38' trailer hits the road filled with over 130 drysuits, DiveWear insulation, BCs, Weight & Trim Systems and more. Local DUI dealers join together to help divers learn about diving dry giving many divers their first opportunity to actually "test dive" the diving equipment.
Our DOG Rally & Demo Tour isn't just a program, it's an event. At most locations, we have two 20' x 40' tents, informative displays and a Saturday evening dinner and presentation to give divers a real experience and feel welcomed to the DUI family.
