Our Portugal Diving Blog

Whenever we come back from a destination, or hear something interesting about it, we love to write a blog about it. On this page you can find all of our blogs about diving in Portugal.

Deep Cuts: the Best Under the Radar Dive Destinations

Whether you're a 'been there, done that, where's next?' kind of traveller, or simply like the idea of exploring beyond the norm, we're here to bring you all the best diving 'Deep Cuts' - destinations that fly under the radar and yet offer some of the best scenery, diving and holiday experiences around. Having canvassed the globe, here are five of our favourites…

The Best Diving Holiday Destinations for Summer

Summer. Even thinking the word brings on visions of Pimm's in the garden, the distinctive waft of barbecue and most of us Brits sporting some fairly interesting tan lines (read: burn lines). And thankfully Summer is finally on its way. But while the Great British Summer can be marvellous, it's fair to say it can also be - how to put this - fickle, at the best of times. Which is why it's good to have a Plan B, namely a summer holiday, in the pipeline. And it just so happens that some of the best dive destinations around the world are perfect during the summer months, but availability is going like hotcakes so the time is nigh to get booking, people! Here are our top six dive destinations this summer…

The Best Way to Dive the Azores – our Exclusive Diving Liveaboard

For years, we've been desperate for an exceptional quality diving liveaboard in the Azores. Finally, we have one in the luxurious Water & Wind. What's more, we're incredibly excited to say that we are the exclusive UK partner for the boat - so if diving in the Azores is on the to-do list, we're here to help.

A Few Summer Diving Hotspots

Summer diving, this time in Komodo in Indonesia. Stunning. With weather in the UK in summer unpredictable at best and England out of the World Cup, it's about time to escape on a last minute summer diving adventure. Here are a few ideas to inspire!

Short Haul Winter Diving Destinations

As we (at least those of us based in Europe) are slowly stepping into the cold of winter and dusting off our winter clothing, here at Original Diving, we've compiled our list of some top short-haul winter diving destinations. Here's a selection of places you can get to for a short break where the snow won't be falling and the waters remain unfrozen. Enjoy!

Introducing Our Expert-Led Group Diving Trips

In short, the idea is small groups, big experiences. Our Expert-Led Journeys are a range of trips to diverse diving destinations around our extraordinary planet, each of which is an opportunity to experience a dive, marine life or natural phenomenon in the company of an expert who can bring it vividly to life. The idea is to offer mind-blowing underwater experiences that simply won't fit the mould of our multi-award winning, tailor-made trips.

The Best Diving in Europe

It isn't often that you find somewhere so close to home (if your home is in the UK) that blows you away with the quality of diving.

Where do I start? It was our best trip yet. Everything went smoothly. It was a wonderful package at a very good price, well organised by Original Travel and we felt totally spoilt.
