Scuba diving has been a new hobby I’ve discovered and I’ve completely fallen in love with it. Whether you have been before or not, you must check out these absolutely incredible dive sites all over the world.

Portofino, Italy

This site holds beautiful archeological dive sites including shipwrecks and rich marine life. The National Park offers cliffs and walls that also house tons of marine life. You can swim along the wall or over the cliffs for a truly remarkable diving experience.

Costa del Sol, Spain

Located in the south of Spain, Costa del Sol has many diving sites. The best of all is the La Costa Tropical diving site which is home to beautiful dolphins, colorful moonfish, and scorpionfish. Not to mention, this site also has protected bays, making it the perfect spot for both beginners and advanced divers and also snorkelers!

Ms Zenobia Wreck, Cyprus

This is a popular wreck diving site, that offers challenges for both beginner and experienced divers. There are tons of cool things to swim through, over and under in the wreck, and here’s a pro tip: Check the truck’s, cargo and other things that sank with the ship.

Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt

The best diving spot is located just a few feet off the main beach at Naama bay, where you can see Masked Butterfly and Parrot Fish swimming freely in the clear, blue waters. However, if you are looking for something different, you can also consider visiting the Ras Mohammed National Park to explore the fabulous Yolanda Reef, which is home to sharks, turtles, and tuna fish.

Deep Water Cay, Bahamas

Deep Water Cay has thousands of coral reefs, inlets, and cays that divers can easily spend a lifetime exploring. Not only is the Deep Water Cay a perfect place for diving, it is also great for relaxing, snorkeling, and bone fishing. The best part is there are no restrictions on diving! This means you dive whenever you want to.

Reethi Beach, Maldives

There is no better place to immerse yourself than in the warm, transparent waters of the Indian Ocean. Here you will find the Reethi Beach which houses Eagle Rays and Bat Fish. The diving here is for the more experienced and is known for its beautiful underwaters where turtles love to swim next to you.

Dominica, Caribbean

The Caribbean is famous for some of the best diving spots in the world, such as the self-proclaimed “nature island”, the Dominica, which is known for providing the world’s top environmental experiences, both below and above the water. In addition to the pristine diving sites, like Scotts Head and Champagne Reef, that have a diversity of corals and critters and a dense marine life, for the outdoors lovers — you can also find amazing waterfalls and rainforests that will simply blow your mind!

Don’t forget before you leave for your scuba trip to make sure you have all of the necessary equipment. Keep in mind that being that many feet under water for an extended period of time is not something the human body is designed for.

It is most important that you stay safe and take all proper precautions to ensure a successful dive! And most importantly, always dive with a buddy!!
