Where to Dive in March

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

March: we're all incredibly fed up of winter but spring hasn't quite come to fruition. There is but one solution: go away. Diving in March is still great in the Maldives (though hurry, the sun and visibility will start to drop soon!) and it's a similar situation in the Philippines.

Diving in March

March is also the beginning of whale shark season in Ningaloo Reef in Australia, while over in Mexico's Yucatan peninsula dive with pregnant bull sharks, which, combined with diving in cenotes (crystal clear freshwater caves) add up to an unforgettable adventure.

For families, depending when Easter falls, March can be the month to take advantage of the bank holiday and it doesn't get much better than Easter in the Caribbean - from the shallow coral gardens and underwater sculptures of Grenada to the unofficial shore diving capital of the world Bonaire, there is something for everyone.

March is a marvellous time to go diving in the Philippines, where world-class muck diving can be mixed with colourful coral reefs (it is in the Coral Triangle, after all), not to forget the long-tailed thresher sharks that frequent Malapascua. Expect superb diving in the Seychelles in March with surface intervals spent marooned on coconut palm fringed beaches, or, to get truly off the radar, the remote Outer Islands boast 100+ metre walls, pristine reefs ands whirlpools of marine life ripe for exploration.

Original Highlight

Avoid any March misery by jetting Western Australia to snorkel with whale sharks as they start to arrive in Ningaloo Reef.
