Escape the February funk by heading to sunnier climes. This is a great month for seeing sharks off the coast of Tanzania, snorkelling with humpback whales in Silver Banks in the Caribbean and exploring the beautifully colourful corals of the Maldives. Need we go on?

Diving in February

Families will be all too aware of the glories of February Half Term, and we know all the best destinations and hotels for snorkelling and diving holidays with kids. For everyone else, February is a month for some much-needed winter sun - Christmas is but a distant memory and spring feels like light years away. Combine some serious sun-bathing above the waves with some excellent diving beneath, and we know all the best places to go...

February may be short but it's certainly not that sweet... that is unless you're relaxing poolside with a good book in one hand and a cocktail in the other.
