Autumn approaches, migrating birds head for warmer climes, and the Middle East and Mozambique are rather nice at this time of year.
Charlie, Original Diver
The Middle East and North Africa, unbearably hot for the previous few months, should now be firmly back on the radar in October. The Red Sea remains a favourite for world-class diving and Oman is an interesting alternative away from the crowds; both not too far away from the UK.
Diving in October
Further afield, October and November are the perfect time to dive the Quirimbas Archipelago in Mozambique, home to one of our favourite dives, Neptune's Arm and other great options from a weather perspective are the Seychelles where the wind should have died enough to make all the dive sites accessible and perhaps Tanzania. The seasons are changing in Indonesia and it's really the last month of the year you will want to be diving in Europe unless you like cold water.
