Where To Go Diving In Spring

As the cold, dark winter days slowly begin to give way to the oncoming spring, divers across the country start planning their next dive adventure. While the UK dive conditions may not yet be warm enough to tempt you in, the waters of some of the world’s top diving destinations are waiting to dazzle you with their gin-clear visibility and magnificent marine life. If you are looking for a top destination to go diving in spring, we can help you put together the perfect itinerary to get you back in the water after a winter break.

The more intrepid diver may seek out the diverse marine life and warm waters of the Pacific islands. Papua New Guinea sits at the western edge of the Pacific Ocean and has been much lauded among macro photographers and pelagic lovers alike. Whether you prefer the big fish action at Kavieng or a liveaboard to explore the outer islands, diving PNG's pristine reefs in March will blow your mind.

The Easter holidays are an ideal time to visit Palau to see manta rays feeding in the German Channel and grey reef sharks riding the currents at Blue Corner. Dust off your reef hook and head for the warmer Pacific climes and the world's premier shark sanctuary for some of the best spring diving on the planet.

The mere mention of the Caribbean warms the soul as it conjures images of Calypso music, coconut trees and a Pina Colada (or two). Spring signals a great time to head to the pristine reefs and underwater sculpture parks in Grenada. April also throws up the opportunity of whale watching at Silver Bank in the Dominican Republic, via a liveaboard trip from nearby Turks & Caicos.

A little closer to home, spring diving in Egypt sees the Red Sea beginning to warm in preparation for its busy summer season. By May, the water temperature is back in the mid-twenties, and you can beat the summer crowds and enjoy the wrecks, walls and endless visibility of Hurghada. Take in the pyramids in Cairo, cruise down the Nile onboard the luxurious Steam Ship Sudan, before taking the plunge on Hurghada's reefs for the perfect start to the year's diving.

When the time arrives to spring into action (excuse the pun) and start planning your dive trip, our team of diving specialists are on hand to help you tailor your perfect spring diving holiday to ensure your year's diving gets off to the best possible start.
