Europe is the quintessential summer destination for British travellers and July is a fabulous month to dive in places like Gozo, the Azores and Sardinia. 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 fish 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.

The manta rays and whale sharks are well and truly settled in around the Maldives and cropping up all over the place like Ningaloo Reef in Australia, Mexico, Belize - if you know where to look (hint: that's where we come in).

Our favourites for July

Ulun Danu Temple, Bali

Bali

Bali and Lombok have great variety for divers including wreck diving, muck diving, mantas and even a chance to encounter the extraordinary mola mola.

Bali
Bora Bora Aerial, French Polynesia

French Polynesia

French Polynesia is home to the iconic lagoon at Bora Bora and some stunning diving. The biggest draw is arguably large numbers of sharks but there is much more.

French Polynesia
Fighting Komodo Dragons

Komodo

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

Komodo
Lion Fish, Moyo Island

Moyo Island

Moyo Island is perfect for those that love wildlife and are looking for some off-the-beaten-track luxury.

Moyo Island
Azores Aerial

The Azores

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

The Azores
Gozo 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.

Gozo
Great Barrier Reef, Australia

Great Barrier Reef

Lizard Island, in our opinion the best place from which to dive the Great Barrier Reef, is situated at the northern end of the Reef, is home to little more than a Marine Research Station, a luxury hotel, pristine beaches, and a population of large lizards.

Great Barrier Reef
Turtle Waving

Galapagos Archipelago

Galapagos liveaboard diving, simply the best way to dive the Galapagos Islands.
