Our Top 5 Winter Dive Destinations

Now that winter has begun and the weather in the UK is grim to say the least, we thought it the appropriate moment to turn your attention to those parts of the globe that are enjoying warmer climes and of course some lovely diving. While you may be drenched from your commute to work in the UK, in these winter dive destinations you will only be soaked from an incredible dive and this certainly won't last long with the sun on your back! So here are our top five winter dive destinations where you can get your fix of winter sun:

Types of Diving: Wall Diving

If you suffer from vertigo then it is probably best to stick to sloping reefs as opposed to drop-offs and walls, with some going down to 600m! But if heights are not an issue for you, wall diving can prove to be some of the most interesting and exciting diving you can do.

Animal Encounters: Diving with Hammerhead Sharks

There is no mistaking how the hammerhead shark got its name: the head is flattened and extends outwards into the shape of a hammer, known as a cephalofoil. They appear so otherworldly since the head seems completely out of place on a fish with such a streamlined body.

A Fish(er) in Water

It is difficult to ignore the fact that my name very conveniently mirrors my fascination and love of the marine world! Coincidence? Or perhaps some deep-rooted, inherited subconscious and therefore inevitable? Either way, water has played a prominent part in my life from bottoms-up in rock pools as a toddler to learning to dive at the age of twelve to a degree in Marine Biology. Over the last few years I have taken as much time as possible outside study to explore both above and below the water. What is so exciting to me and particularly with diving is that you have never seen it all and no dive is the same (and in a lot of cases even vaguely similar).

A (Blue) Hole New World

Blue holes, or offshore flooded caves are aptly named for the dramatic contrast between the dark blue waters of their depths and the lighter blue of the surrounding shallower waters. They are underwater sinkholes that were formed during glaciations when sea levels were much lower than today. As sea levels rose, the caves were flooded, leading to the creation of these ocean abysses.
