After the hot summer, the water temperatures in the south
Mediterranean are at their highest, and September is a great time
to hop on a short flight to Gozo for some of
Europe's best diving. WWII wrecks, underwater gullies and canyons
and the famous Blue Hole await. Topside, explore the quaint fishing
villages and the ancient Ggantija temples as you enjoy the
mid-twenties temperatures both on land and below the waves. If you
prefer something a little more exotic, September also sees some
great Caribbean diving in
Bonaire. The tropical climate and the blend of European and
Caribbean cultures make Bonaire a perennial favourite, although
September brings the chance to witness a coral spawning event a few
fin kicks away from the sun-kissed shoreline.
Temperatures in the UK drop even further in October, but you can
find respite on the Red Sea Riviera. A short-haul flight will see
you basking in the Egyptian
sunshine and heading off for a dive at one of the world's premier
wrecks - the SS Thistlegorm. The steamship's wreck was
discovered by Jacques Cousteau and is easily accessed from your
base in Hurghada. And why not start your autumn break by taking in
the pyramids in Cairo and cruising the Nile in the luxurious Steam
Ship Sudan under the warming African sun?
November sees the start of the epic diving season in Palau
and the chance to swap scarves and hats for sharks and mantas.
Leave the always-too-early Christmas music behind and jet off for
some incredible autumn diving on some of the world's best known
dive sites-Blue Corner, German Channel and Ulong Channel will make
the journey more than worth it. If the pristine diving in the
Pacific is not floating your boat, why not venture south to
discover the stunning reefs and megafauna on offer in Tanzania? Spot
whale sharks in the warm waters around Mafia Island before heading
inland to spot elephants and more in the Selous Game Reserve to
ensure you will have plenty of stories to tell at those
fast-approaching Christmas parties.
