Scuba Nation, a television show about recreational scuba diving that airs on Fox Sports Sun, is set to shoot an episode in Palm Beach County next year.

The weekly show reaches roughly 6 million households, and each episode is viewed by about 200,000 dive enthusiasts.

Tourism leaders, hoping to capitalize on the international exposure generated by the show, plan to launch an annual underwater photography contest.

The contest, which would be promoted on Scuba Nation, would be used to draw out-of-town divers to the area, officials said.
