One of the unique things about us here at Original Diving is that nearly all of our trips are great not just for divers but for the whole family from 0 to 80. We appreciate that not everyone will want to dive all of the time, and that family holidays require more logistical precision than your average military campaign, so a bit of expert advice at the planning stage is essential.

The Original Diving portfolio has grown steadily as we source new family favourites, but remains select because we know that despite ubiquitous claims to family-friendliness, few hotels or lodges really have the right 'kidentials'.

We know there's a place for the bucket and spade holiday that the likes of Europe, Mauritius and the Caribbean do so well, but we believe that with our know-how it is now perfectly plausible to enjoy a family holiday with incredible diving but also that keeps everyone else happy as well. After all, family holidays should be as much fun for the parents as they are for the children.

Old or young

Whether you're travelling with small kids and need local diving and good babysitting or you want a multigenerational adventure in remote Indonesia, we have researched the best locations for you. Trust us, we have a lot of children here at Original!

Where to go

Indonesia

Indonesia

Home to some of the best diving on earth, incredible landscapes and world class hotels, Indonesia is one of our favourite countries. There are some 17,000 islands to choose from but we know the very best spots to head to.

Philippines

Philippines

The Philippines has an incredible amount of variety in the form of WWII wrecks, pristine reefs, world-class muck diving and one of our favourites: the thresher shark.

Egypt

Egypt

Egypt has vast historical and cultural aspects, and also offers world class diving, all within striking distance of Europe.

Maldives

The Maldives is a world-class diving destination, particularly if you like diving with big fish. Above the waves you find pure white sand, blue seas and world-class hotels. What's not to like?

Fiji

Fiji

Stunning soft corals, great marine life, beautiful beaches and the 'friendliest people on Earth'. What's not to like about Fiji.

Oman

Oman

Oman has spectacular scenery, both over and under the water. And the bonus, it's relatively quiet and untouched when compared to its Middle Eastern neighbours.

The Azores

The Azores offer world-class diving; we think the best in Europe. It also offers some amazing activities around its volcanic scenery.

Australia

Australia

Australia offers great diving. As well as the Great Barrier Reef there are the wonders of Lord Howe Island and Ningaloo Reef.

The British Virgin Islands

The British Virgin Islands offer great diving and hotels, as well as being home to a world famous wreck-dive, the RMS Rhone.

Turks & Caicos

Turks & Caicos

The Turks and Caicos is home to some wonderfully white sand and clear blue seas. Oh, and some very good diving.

Gozo

Gozo, Malta's quiet sister, offers great Mediterranean diving, as well as culture, with a collection of charming villages and prehistoric sites to visit; and it's relatively anonymous.

Mexico

Two different coastlines, two totally different types of diving, both offering something very special.
