Where to Dive in July

Lauren and India are here to help give you the inside track.

Europe is the quintessential summer destination for British travellers and July is a fabulous month to dive in places like Malta, Gozo and the Azores. There are still plenty of reasons to head further afield though...

Diving in July

The Galapagos experiences the Humboldt Current which brings cold water, rich in nutrients and plankton, and attracts huge amounts of marine life and birds and makes for great - if chilly - diving. On the other side of the world the weather and diving conditions are perfect in Indonesia and Borneo; a great time to experience the wonder that is Sipadan.

July sees the Maldives turn into a feeding frenzy, with Hanifaru Bay in the Baa Atoll attracting hundreds of manta rays who feed in the atoll's nutrient-rich waters. Whale sharks are also popping up all over the place, from across the Maldives to Ningaloo Reef in Australia to Isla Holbox in Mexico and even Belize - if you know where to look (hint: that's where we come in).

Indonesia is one of the best places to dive in July, with endless opportunities for adventure, from liveaboard diving across Komodo to exploring the remote reefs of Alor to photographing weird and wonderful macro critters while muck diving in Northern Sulawesi.

Humpback whales are starting to arrive in Mooera in French Polynesia, which is one of the few destinations in the world where you can snorkel with humpback whales. Another place is Ningaloo Reef in Australia, which also attracts these ginormous gentle creatures from July.

For a truly unique experience, dive in Iceland in July when the Silfra fissure is covered in long green algae locally referred to as “troll hair” – it’s very surreal, even more so considering you are diving in no-man’s land between the North American and Eurasian continents.
