Excuse us for a moment of unabashed self-promotion, but we're delighted to share that our Head of Diving, Louisa Fisher, has been named one of Travel & Leisure's A-List advisers. We pride ourselves on our unparalleled knowledge of diving destinations across the globe and, having practically spent more time underwater than on land, Louisa's expertise is second to none. Following a degree in marine biology, Louisa has spent the last decade exploring the underwater world, from diving the final frontiers of Papua New Guinea to mingling with hundreds of manta rays in the Maldives and plunging between tectonic plates in Iceland. Louisa creates personalised scuba trips for clients to the most pristine corners of the earth...
LOUISA’S TOP PICK ITINERARIES
While Louisa's logbook includes just about every diving destination in the world (think: the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Mexico, Mozambique, Egypt, Oman, Indonesia, the Seychelles, Gozo, Micronesia and many more), here's an idea of the type of trip she can plan for you…
Exclusive Trip to Dive the Deep South Maldives
Set sail to the remote southernly atolls of the Maldives aboard the Four Seasons Explorer to dive some of the Indian Ocean's least dived, spectacularly fishy sites. To reel off just a few of the epic highlights: snorkel with whale sharks under the stars, dive with manta rays in the Laamu atoll and spot thresher sharks, hammerheads and tiger sharks in the Fuvahmulah atoll. More than enough to whet your appetite.
Ultimate Papua New Guinea
It's no secret that Papua New Guinea is one of our favourite diving destinations on earth. And on this Ultimate Papua New Guinea itinerary you can explore the cream of the crop, from diving the 'original' muck diving sites of Milne Bay to the spectacular coral reefs of Kimbe bay and the dramatic fjords of Tufi.
Ply the Nile and Dive the Red Sea, Egypt
From Alexander the Great to the Pharaohs, Egypt has some of the most fascinating history on the planet. On this Egypt diving trip, follow in the footsteps of Agatha Christie aboard the Steam Ship Sudan (the inspiration of her book Death on the Nile), exploring ancient pyramids as you cruise down the Nile before decamping on the coast to dive the pristine reefs that line the Red Sea.
Raja Ampat and Ubud Adventure, Indonesia
The holy grail of cool combos, Raja Ampat and Ubud go together like salt and pepper, gin and tonic, butter on toast - you get the gist. Dive some of the world's most spectacular coral reefs in Raja Ampat (on a luxury liveaboard, naturally) before decamping to the spiritual, cultural and culinary capital of Bali on this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
Sharks of Socorro, Mexico
Located 250 miles south of Baja California in the remote Pacific Ocean, Socorro is one of the best places in the world for big animal encounters. On this 11-day adventure, dive with manta rays, dolphins, whale sharks (April to July and November to December), humpback whales (January to April) and a mind-boggling ten species of shark, including schools of juvenile scalloped hammerheads.
Safari and Scuba, Tanzania
Africa is known for having some of the greatest wildlife encounters on earth. On this two-week 'bush and beach' Tanzanian adventure, spot the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) in the Selous Game Reserve before ticking off wildlife wonders under the waves off Mafia Island, diving the very fishy reefs of Mafia Island Marine Park and snorkelling with ginormous, spotty whale sharks.
