With the Great Barrier Reef situated off the coast of Australia, it is unsurprising that this is one of the most popular scuba diving locations in the world. This 2300-kilometre reef, which is so massive it can even be seen from space and is even referred to as one of the seven wonders of the world, is home to thousands of varieties of fish, corals, and other aquatic species ranging from sea urchins to massive humpback whales. Located within the reef are several shipwrecks, which offer another fascinating, if not slightly eerie, adventure. Many experienced scuba divers consider Australia to be one of the best places for scuba diving, and it is clear to see why!


The Caribbean

The Caribbean is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. However, the appeal doesn't stop on the sandy shores. It is also a very popular destination for scuba diving! The variety of underwater sights to explore makes the Carribean a unique place to scuba dive. Old and new shipwrecks, coral reefs teeming with life, steep drop-offs into the deep ocean; the Caribbean has an adventure for all sorts of thrill seekers. Visitors to Aruba can explore interesting shipwrecks, while the Bahamas offers the best shark diving in the world; Bonaire is one of the most accessible places to scuba dive in the world, while a trip to Grenada comes with the opportunity to explore one of the biggest shipwrecks. The Caribbean has a scuba diving adventure for everyone!



Thailand is an extremely popular tourist destination, and many people are drawn to this country for its beautiful beaches. Thailand also offers a variety of incredible scuba diving experiences, including some which are more challenging than others. Multiple reefs off the coast of Thailand have been known to attract the mysterious whale shark! Due to variations in weather and visibility underwater, the ideal period to scuba dive in Thailand is between January and April.



Scuba diving in the paradise that is the Maldives is quite unlike anything else and is the perfect ingredient for the perfect tropical holiday. The reefs, which are now recovering from the tsunami more than a decade ago, are home to a dazzling variety of aquatic animals. Scuba diving here is incredibly accessible; in fact, a Maldives diving resort of your choice may offer a scuba diving excursion, or even have a coral reef situated right beside the hotel. Choosing a resort such as Velassaru Maldives will make scuba diving an easy excursion to plan during a trip to the Maldives.

The weather is perfect, the reefs are magnificent, and the shipwrecks dotted along are historic and fascinating.
