Some of our favourites

A selection of our favourite suggestions

Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Australia

Australia offers great diving. As well as the Great Barrier Reef there are the wonders of Lord Howe Island and Ningaloo Reef.

Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat

Raja Ampat just happens to sit right on the bullseye of the Coral Triangle, which is the area of highest marine biodiversity on earth. With more species of fish and coral than anywhere else on our planet, the diving here is jaw-dropping.

Highlands of Papua New Guinea

Papua New Guinea

This is one of the last few genuine frontier areas left on the planet. Mention Papua New Guinea and people will probably have visions of cannibals marauding through the jungle. Well, nowadays, the only headhunters you’re likely to come across are Australian recruitment consultants on holiday, but they – and you – would be among the first people to explore what is a truly original destination.

Fiji island aerial

Fiji

Stunning soft corals, great marine life, beautiful beaches and the 'friendliest people on Earth'. What's not to like about Fiji.

Humpback whale, Mozambique

Mozambique

Untouched beauty along with some of our favourite dive sites. What's not to like about Mozambique?

Little Cayman Sunset

Little Cayman

World-class diving and laid back Caribbean charm at its best. This is one of the very best Caribbean diving destinations.

Azores

The Azores

The Azores offer world-class diving; we think the best in Europe. It also offers some amazing activities around its volcanic scenery.

Maldives palm trees

Maldives

The Maldives is a world-class diving destination, particularly if you like diving with big fish. Above the waves you find pure white sand, blue seas and world-class hotels. What's not to like?

Rangiroa Atoll

Rangiroa

Rangiroa, at the heart of the Tuamoto archipelago, is the second largest atoll in the world. Only an hour's flight away from Tahiti, it is home to some world-class diving.

Micronesia Rock Islands

Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) is made up of four states from West to East: Yap, Chuuk (previously known as Truk), Pohnpei and Kosrae. Theses states make up approximately 607 islands (only 65 are inhabited) spread over 2,500km just north of the equator in the Western Pacific.

Philippines

Philippines

The Philippines has an incredible amount of variety in the form of WWII wrecks, pristine reefs, world-class muck diving and one of our favourites: the thresher shark.

Mount Bromo, Indonesia

Indonesia

Home to some of the best diving on earth, incredible landscapes and world class hotels, Indonesia is one of our favourite countries. There are some 17,000 islands to choose from but we know the very best spots to head to.

Manta ray, Taveuni

Taveuni

Soft coral capital of the world and offering so much more, this is a must visit. The Great White Wall is worth the trip on its own!

Lord Howe Island Lagoons

Lord Howe Island

Home to the southernmost coral reef in the world, this little known island is a hidden gem.

Bahamas City view

Bahamas

Scattered like dabs of possibility on an adventurer’s palette, the Bahamas are ready-made for exploration. Just ask Christopher Columbus, he bumped against these limestone landscapes in 1492 and changed the course of history.

Ruins on the beach in Riviera Maya

Mexico

Two different coastlines, two totally different types of diving, both offering something very special.

Clownfish, Wakatobi

Wakatobi

With some of the most pristine reefs on earth, Wakatobi is paradise for those that love coral and the small stuff - particularly the pygmy seahorse!

Iguana Underwater, Galapagos

Ecuador & the Galapagos

Home to a rich variety of wildlife, both above and below the waves, some of which are found nowhere else in the world.

Blue hole, Gozo

Gozo

Gozo, Malta's quiet sister, offers great Mediterranean diving, as well as culture, with a collection of charming villages and prehistoric sites to visit; and it's relatively anonymous.

Southern Red Sea beach

Southern Red Sea

The southern Red Sea combines what we love about Red Sea diving with a more relaxed and quiet atmosphere, that is to say, not as many people know about it as they do Sharm.

Komodo dragons, Indonesia

Komodo

Komodo is a stunning destination both above and below the waves. This national park has some of the very best diving on earth.

Apo Island, Philippines

Dumaguete and Dauin

Incredible muck diving, beautiful reefs and one of our favourite hotels, this region is an absolute gem.

Mafia Island, Tanzania

Mafia Island

Little known Mafia is one of the only places you are virtually guaranteed whale sharks at the right time of year.

Diving off Babeldoab Island

Palau

Located midway between the Philippines and Guam in the western part of the Caroline Islands (this eastern part is known as Micronesia), the nation's claim to fame is now its world-class diving...
