  • Tanzania
  • Fiji
  • Bohol
  • East Bali
  • Lombok
  • Maldives
  • French Polynesia
  • Seychelles

If 'Before Sunrise', 'Lost in Translation' and 'Casablanca' have taught us anything, it's that all great romances happen abroad. And it's no coincidence that most of the best dive destinations are in some of the most beautiful corners of the world. Whether you're celebrating a special…

  • Maldives
  • French Polynesia
  • Gozo
  • Northern Mozambique & Quirimbas Archipelago
  • Komodo
  • The Azores
  • Galapagos Archipelago
  • Fiji

After somewhat questionable weather over Easter (for us Brits, anyway), the skies have finally cleared and a few brave souls have even stepped out in shorts. And with the faintest whiff of warmth in the air we're stuffing clothes into our suitcases faster than a millennial can text. But…

The crème de la crème of Maldives diving

  • Maldives

An archipelago of coconut fringed islands that scatter the Indian Ocean, the Maldives has long tempted daydreams of Robinson Crusoe escapes, but dip below the glistening waters and the diving is just as inspiring. Although you will find healthy coral gardens in abundance, divers continue to…

The Story of Milaidhoo

Dive into 2018

  • Western Australia
  • Gozo
  • Grenada
  • Oman
  • Fiji
  • The Azores
  • Maldives

Today was particularly hard. It all started when the alarm went off while it was still dark outside and got progressively worse as we gingerly stuck one toe out from under the duvet and it felt like we'd been transported overnight to Antarctica. Then there was the seemingly endless cycle of…

  • Maldives
  • Sri Lanka
  • Belize
  • Guatemala
  • Japan
  • Philippines
  • Lisbon
  • The Azores

The PADI Bubblemaker Course

  • Maldives

Do you remember your first dive? I most certainly do. It was in the Bahamas, aged 16 and with - in hindsight - a distinctly cowboy dive outfit, but within five minutes of being down I'd seen a shark off in the distance, and after 20 minutes, a turtle considerably closer. As you can imagine,…

What We Learnt From Chasing Coral

  • Fiji
  • Maldives
  • Seychelles
  • Palau
  • Raja Ampat
  • Indonesia

Picture this: A kaleidoscope of colourful corals, from gargantuan brain corals to gently swaying fan corals. Schools of vibrant purple and yellow fairy basslets dance above whilst snakelike moray eels lurk in crevices. Rainbow coloured parrot fish peck away for algae below a giant goliath…

  • Indonesia
  • Moyo Island
  • Maldives
  • Fiji

Coral reefs are some of the world's most colourful and diverse ecosystems, and a hidden treasure to feast the eyes upon for any scuba diver and snorkeller. But why should you wait for a boat trip from your hotel when you can access these underwater Edens straight from the shores of your…
