Where to go

Some of our favourites

A selection of our favourite suggestions

Great Barrier Reef, Australia


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

Coral 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


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

Humpback whale, 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 aerial view

The Azores

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

Beach umbrella in the 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, 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


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.

Diver in the 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


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


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


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


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

Clownfish, 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, 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 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


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...

The Top 11 Dive Sites For Shark Diving

Did you know that sharks have been around for more than 400 million years? Not only do they pre-date humans but also dinosaurs, making them some of the oldest living creatures to patrol our planet. Despite this, over 100 million sharks are killed each year by human activity, from bycatch to…

Top Five Dive Sites in Alor

Ask a toddler to draw the most bizarre, colourful and wacky underwater creature they can imagine, and you might get something close to the marine residents of Indonesia's Alor. Tourism has only come to Alor very recently, meaning two very significant things: 1) the waters and their…

Last-Minute Summer Diving

Scorching one minute, torrential rain the next; the Great British Summer is about as fickle as the relationships on Love Island (only two weeks left, thank god). But rather than wait to see what Mother Nature throws at us next, we suggest trading in for an exotic new destination. From diving…

Responsible Tourism in the Maldives

One of the most beautiful archipelagos in the world, the Maldives continues to entice with its signature low lying islands (the highest natural point is two-and-a-half metres above sea level), coral reefs, mangrove forests and seagrasses, yet these sensitive habitats sadly also bring this…

Top 20 Underwater Photographers: Part II

We revealed the first round of winners for our Underwater Photography competition in Part I, now after much anticipation, it's time to reveal the other images that smashed the 'original' diving photo brief, and, quite frankly, made us want to escape the city in search of some water. Pronto.

Top 20 Underwater Photographers: Part I

Snapshots of time, passports to other worlds and instruments for change, photography is the most powerful tool. We might be biased, but underwater photography truly trumps on the nature scale; it allows us to explore the ocean's greatest (and still largely undiscovered) depths, celebrate its…

Shallow Diving in Raja Ampat – diving with a PFO

Epic Shark Diving in the Bahamas

You might not have noticed, but the Bahamas has been popping up just about everywhere (well, everywhere underwater related, anyway). Seen an epic shot of a tiger beach slinking across a sandy bottom? Tiger Beach off Grand Bahama Island. How about a close up of a great hammerhead smiling?…

Nudibranchs - Facts About The World's Prettiest Slugs

Nudibranchs, sometimes more commonly known as "sea slugs" are some of the hardest creatures to spot on a dive. Although related to snails, these colourful little creatures have ditched the homes they carry on their backs as they have evolved. Similar to land snails, nudibranchs also leave a…
