The visibility is extremely clear, and the sights are stunning. Wayag is not only beautiful underwater but is simply gorgeous from the topside as well.

2. Maaya Thila, Maldives

Every part about this location is awesome! From the lively reefs to grey reef sharks to giant whale sharks, this place is a “must dive.” This is one of the best dive sites in the Maldives and is often rated in the top ten best dive sites in the world. The visibility is clear, and the sea life are very interactive. In Maaya Thila any experience is a good one; you can free dive with whale sharks or scuba dive the lively reefs, but certainly do not miss out on night diving here. It is legendary.

3. Yongala Wreck, Australia

Thought by many as the best dive in Australia, the wreck of the Yongala in Queensland is teaming with wildlife. If you’re looking for one of the most adventurous, sea life rich dives in the world this is it. You’ll encounter breathtaking animals around every corner including sea snakes, potato cod, manta rays, tiger sharks, bull sharks, octopus, turtles, and even whales…all on the same dive!

4. Dos Ojos Cenote, Mexico

If you’ve never been Cenote diving, it’s an experience like no other. If jumping into a limestone pit in the middle of the Mexican jungle filled with crystal clear fresh water doesn’t spell adventure to you then we don’t know what does. Although you’ll see plenty of colorful freshwater fish near the surface, it’s the amazing limestone formations and cave systems that draw divers here from around the world. If you really want to experience the full beauty this site has to offer, then make sure you complete your Cave Diver certification before coming. You won’t want to miss thrill of this beautiful cave system.

5. Koh Bon, Similan Islands, Thailand

It’s hard to pick a particular dive site in the Similan Islands as they are ALL amazing, but we picked Koh Bon because it’s famous for manta ray sightings, it’s amazing corals, and beautiful scenery. If you’re looking for some of the most amazingly colored corals in the world this is the place; colors of turquoise, yellow, blue, pink and purple. Bring your camera because you won’t find a more photogenic reef in the world.

It’s easy to see that the world is full of fantastic dive spots. It’s your job to get out there and dive them, so pack that dive gear and get diving! Not sure where to start? Visit our travel page and book one of our upcoming group dive trips today.
