Best diving in Europe

From Scotland to Greece, the old continent is an underrated scuba diving destination. The best diving in Europe is all about quirky dive sites: historical shipwrecks from WWII, submerged ancient villages from the Antiquity or the Middle Age.

An extensive program of Marine Protected Areas (MPA) in the Mediterranean Sea has allowed the development of fabulous dive sites in Southern Europe where fish population thrive such as in France, Italy and Greece.

But Southern Europe is not the only place where you can enjoy an incredible marine fauna. In the colder waters of the British Isles, you can even dive with dolphins, seals and basking sharks.
