Our Caribbean Diving Blog

Whenever we visit a place, or find out something interesting about it, we like to write a blog. Here you will find all of our blog posts related to diving in the Caribbean. And more!

Island Hopping in the Caribbean

My most recent research trip took me back to the Caribbean to check out a few more of the beautiful hotels and resorts we work with and, most importantly, to discover whether there was any diving worth reporting home about. Oh, it's a tough life…

Curacao and Bonaire | A Caribbean Gem

I was asked to cross the ocean and to go to the Caribbean in order to discover a destination that has been on Original Diving's radar for far too long. Of course, because I am very disciplined, I said yes and off I went to find out more about the best diving and hotels around the Dutch Caribbean Islands, Curacao and Bonaire.

Long Haul Winter Sun

The temperatures in the UK are still above 10˚C, but the question on all of our minds is for how long? Soon the era of darkness and cold will take over and before we know it we will all suffer from a major lack of vitamin D and a constant sniffle. So it is time for you to plan at keeping those vitamins at the right level. And why not combine this with a little bit, or a lot, of 'winter diving'? At Original Diving, we have selected the best destinations for long haul winter sun:

Top 10 Diving Beaches

Tim Simond, author of Dive in Style, presents his top 10 beaches worldwide. Not only are they stunning but all sit next to world-class diving so you can spend your mornings in the depths and your afternoons on the sand.

Imaginary Celebrity Diving Holidays

The world is full of possibilities when it comes to diving holidays and we are experts in creating the right trip for you. With this in mind, we thought it might be fun to dream up a few imaginary snapshot itineraries for famous people in the present. For example, where on earth would you send the Beckhams on holiday for a dose of winter sun and to learn to dive? Diving is a popular sport amongst celebrities, Tiger Woods once explained his love for diving with 'The fish don't know who I am'.

Our Top 5 Winter Dive Destinations

Now that winter has begun and the weather in the UK is grim to say the least, we thought it the appropriate moment to turn your attention to those parts of the globe that are enjoying warmer climes and of course some lovely diving. While you may be drenched from your commute to work in the UK, in these winter dive destinations you will only be soaked from an incredible dive and this certainly won't last long with the sun on your back! So here are our top five winter dive destinations where you can get your fix of winter sun:

Top Destinations for 2013

Now that we have begun the year, we thought it appropriate to outline which destinations we are most interested in for 2013 and looking to expand/add to our portfolio.

Extraordinary Snorkelling Trips

Controversial as it may sound from dive experts, we believe that you can often get as much pleasure from snorkelling as you can from diving. In fact, sometimes snorkelling is the best way to view the underwater world. With this in mind we have been researching the globe for original and exciting snorkelling trips.

New Dive Destinations Uncovered

At Dive in Style, we spend our lives researching exciting and new dive destinations so you don't have to. We will soon be launching a new website with lots of new dive trips but here's a taster of what's to come. These trips are perfect whether you want to dive, snorkel, or just relax.

Wreck Heads

Wreck diving can give as much excitement to a scuba diver as a roman coin does to a treasure hunter wielding a metal detector.

A (Blue) Hole New World

Blue holes, or offshore flooded caves are aptly named for the dramatic contrast between the dark blue waters of their depths and the lighter blue of the surrounding shallower waters. They are underwater sinkholes that were formed during glaciations when sea levels were much lower than today. As sea levels rose, the caves were flooded, leading to the creation of these ocean abysses.
