FEATURED DESTINATION | Egypt
DEEP BLUE RED SEA
The birthplace of innumerable dive careers in a place where the sky is as clear and as blue as the sea below. Ancient ruins and camel safaris if you really have to get out of the water.
Sharks and dolphins and a host of other critters make their homes around the 2,000 islands and cays that make up the Bahamas. And there’s a reason Bahamian rum is famous…
THE MOST REMARKABLE REEF
The famous Belize Blue Hole is only part of the reef system of which Jacques Cousteau was so fond. Explore Mayan ruins and meet exotic wildlife at the surface in-between dives.
The dictionary definition of ‘tropical island paradise’ might as well just read ‘Fiji’, home to what many consider the best shark diving spots in the world – and a coral reef system to match.
DIVE INTO HISTORY
Easy, beautiful diving, expansive coral reefs and some excellent wrecks, plus the spectacular ancient city of Petra and the unforgettable Wadi Rum. An excellent Red Sea destination.
CAVES AND CRITTERS
The freshwater cenotes of Mexico offer an unparalleled diving experience, but there’s plenty to satisfy all types of diver, from easy, colourful coral reefs to high energy pelagic encounters.
Mountains, jungles, rivers, and mesmerising diving, Sabah is one of the most spectacular regions of Borneo, both above and below the water – and home to the most lovable tree-dwelling apes.
SOUTH ATLANTIC SECRET
The remote – but no longer so isolated – island of St Helena is rich in history, endemic species, and – for several months each year – adult whale sharks as they gather in search of a mate.
