With warm waters throughout the year, great visibility, and an
abundance of marine life, Grenada is
one of our top choices for open water diving. While it's known as
the 'shipwreck capital of the Caribbean', there are also plenty of
spectacular dive sites for new divers and those getting back into
diving after a long break.
We particularly love Granada because it has a variety of sites
suitable for beginners. You can dip your toe into wreck diving at
the Veronica L with its beautiful encrusting cup corals;
experience something a little different at the Molinere Sculpture
Park, which tells the story and history of the island; or become
entranced by the colourful coral wall at Flamingo Bay.
Egypt has no
shortage of dive sites to choose from, but when it comes to getting
certified in open water diving or improving your skills, we'd
recommend Hurghada every time.
There's a fantastic house reef at the
Oberoi Sahl Hasheesh that's easy to reach from the jetty, with
vibrant healthy corals and diverse wildlife. It's not uncommon to
spot reef fish, sharks, octopus, blue spotted rays and even
dolphins if you're lucky.
With white sand for days and crystal clear waters, the Maldives
is one of our top destinations for honeymooners
looking to try open water diving. Yes, it's full of luxury resorts
and world-class beaches, but beneath the water, the Maldives has
some beautiful reefs, with gorgonian fans, sponges and colourful
It's a top spot for beginners due to its calm waters and great
visibility, with more challenging dives for advanced divers too.
The Maldives is a fantastic location for seeing mega-fauna, and
sightings of whale sharks and manta rays are fairly common.
