Scuba Diving Holidays

It’s an often repeated fact that we know more about space than our oceans. This makes a scuba diving holiday one of the most fascinating you can ever take.

Explore underwater worlds and come face-to-face with some of the most beautiful animal and plant species on our planet, discover wrecks that have made their homes under the sea and float above breath-taking coral reefs for a view like no other. 

With relationships in place with some of the best diving centres in the industry, Holiday Designers can recommend the perfect diving resort whatever your level. Diving lessons with an expert guide can help complete beginners gain confidence in the water and gain their PADI qualification, while more advanced courses can help seasoned divers achieve further certifications. Or if you are already qualified, our diving holiday specialists can suggest the perfect resort to let you loose on the seas with your diving buddy.  

Beyond diving, most resorts offer a vast array of water sports to satisfy those looking for something a bit different. Try your hand at kite surfing, take it easy with snorkel and mask or explore nearby towns with excursions to islands and coastlines.

The best destinations for scuba diving

With 70% of the world covered in water, there is a huge variety of dive resorts for you to choose from. No matter where you plunge into the seas, no dive is ever the same. 

The warm waters around Africa make for some of the best diving in the world. Take a dip in the Egyptian Red Sea to find canyons, caverns and incredible aquatic species in crystal clear waters. The coast around South Africa is another destination worth exploring. The opportunities to see big sea life here is second to none – from dolphins and stingrays to the infamous great white shark.

In the Atlantic Ocean, you can spot rich marine life such as dazzling fish and beautiful coral reefs in the third largest barrier reef surrounding the Bahamas, while the Indian Ocean is home to a large concentration of manta rays and whale sharks.

Closer to home in Europe, the seas around Malta are an underground museum of military shipwrecks, sunken statues and a Blenheim bomber in addition to the wonderful marine life. 

You could even opt for a multi-centre diving holiday to experience multiple destinations in one.
