If you haven’t yet dosed up on winter sun then you’re running out of months before – so the theory goes – the sun returns to northern Europe. Diving in March is still great in the Maldives (though hurry, the sun and visibility will start to drop soon!) and it's a similar situation in the Philippines.

Diving in March

One final date for the diary - March is the beginning of whale shark season in Belize, and we know a secret spot where scientists can predict exactly when and why these elusive creatures turn up year in year out. Finally, and depending on the complicated algorithm that dictates the dates, this can also be the time to make the most of the Easter bank holidays. Easter in the Caribbean is pretty special.

Our favourites for March

Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat just happens to sit right on the bullseye of the Coral Triangle, which is the area of highest marine biodiversity on earth. With more species of fish and coral than anywhere else on our planet, the diving here is jaw-dropping.

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?

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.

Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is made up of four states from West to East: Yap, Chuuk (previously known as Truk), Pohnpei and Kosrae. Theses states make up approximately 607 islands (only 65 are inhabited) spread over 2,500km just north of the equator in the Western Pacific.

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.

Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef, off the coast of Western Australia, is one of the few places on earth that at the right time of year you are guaranteed encounters with Whale Sharks.
