Deep Sea Adventure Diver to speak at Buderim Foundation breakfast

Deep sea diver and adventurer Scott Foote will be the special guest speaker at the next Buderim Foundation breakfast on Wednesday 29th March.

Mr Foote has lived a life of adventure, having travelled to over 74 countries throughout his life and will share just some of his extraordinary experiences.

Born in Mitchell before moving to Brisbane, Scott set off overseas with a backpack, aged 24, for 6 months and was gone for 21 years.

For 16 years, he worked in a very hostile environment as a Saturation Diver, living in a hyperbaric chamber for 28 days at a time, in seas and oceans around the world.

Buderim Foundation chair Rod McKinnon said Mr Foote’s presentation would give the audience a look beneath the oceans’ surface.

“Even recreational divers will be amazed by some of the environments that Scott has worked in and what he has done during his career,” Mr McKinnon said.

Mr McKinnon said following from the Foundation’s sell-out Drovers Evening with Roger Steele, the Deep-Sea Diver Breakfast with Scott Foote was already attracting lots of bookings.

“Like the Drovers Evening, we expect the breakfast to sell out, so we encourage everyone to book early.”

Mr Foote will focus his presentation on his life as a professional deep sea diver in the North Sea oil fields, as well as the salvage of ships, helicopters and body recovery off the west coast of Africa and India.

Scott will also bring along items he salvaged from a vessel which was sunk by the Germans during WW1, off the south coast of Ireland.

“The photos are incredible, so everyone is sure to be amazed and we expect a lively question and answer session,” Mr McKinnon said.

The Buderim Foundation Deep Sea Diver Breakfast with Scott Foote will be held at Headland Golf Club on Wednesday 29th March at 7am.

Tickets are $40 per person and include a full hot breakfast, as well as fresh seasonal fruit cups with Greek yoghurt, assorted Danish pastries, orange juice, tea and coffee. Tickets are limited and expected to sell out.
