World Adventure Divers is the diving blog for adventurous scuba divers. Learn how to explore the world underwater and beyond without breaking the bank.

In this category, you will find more personal stories, special announcement and adventures that were hard to fit in a category for often being too much out-of-the-beaten-path.

In recent years, I started writing more and more about ocean conservation and responsible tourism. My main goal now is to promote responsible diving best practices.

Bringing your phone underwater: is it such a good idea?

As our phones are getting more and more evolved, embedding always higher quality cameras, some of us just ditched the idea of owning a separate camera. To be fair, the perspective of travelling light without any bulky photography equipment is appealing. This is especially the case for us scuba divers when we already travel with our beloved scuba diving gear. Until this year, I

Menton Old Town French Riviera

Top 5 things to do in Menton, my new hideaway on the French Riviera

Let me introduce you to this little piece of France, at the very end of the French Riviera, nestled between the borders of Italy and Monaco. A short walk along the scenic seashore surrounding by mountains is already a hint about its long international heritage despite its small size. Thanks to its mild winter climate, Menton became famous for its flavourful lemons famous but

Plastic-free & Reef-safe: finally, the sunscreen I was waiting for!

Becoming the ultimate responsible diver is not an easy quest as I detailed in a post where I was listing the things I could do better and the ones that still represented a challenge. However, the good news is, as the interest of embracing a more sustainable lifestyle grows, new solutions appear. Finding a sunscreen in shops that would be environmentally-friendly by being both

Extraordinary Esterel: diving & hiking from St-Raphael to Mandelieu

It was the third time I was spending the summer on the French Riviera. I can’t believe I passed, again and again, the Esterel mountain range, half-way on the coast between Toulon and Nice, without ever stopping! It only took a hike and a dive to make me fall for this Natura-2000 protected area of 15,000 ha famous for its red volcanic rocks. Needless

My sabbatical - Msaesato Beach Ishigaki Japan

My sabbatical year from A to Z

It would be fair to say this post might be the most overdue one on my dive travel blog. Since I left my old life behind in June 2018, many of you wrote to me asking “What? How? Why?”. 2 years later, a lot of water has passed under the bridge; it helps to look at this experience with no hard feeling nor duty

Learning Japanese to scuba dive in Japan

If you are wondering why in the world someone would do that? I hear you. I can honestly say that over the 10 years of my scuba diving “career” this is by far the most insane project I have ever pursued. The truth is when you have the opportunity to fulfill a childhood dream, you just run for it, even if it doesn’t make

Indonesia, wait for me…

This post is brought to you by Original Diving Now is not the time to travel, but I want to keep dreaming. Even if we don’t know what will happen out of the chaos we are facing, I still want to pursue my dreams. Will they always be what I thought they would? I can’t be sure, but what I know is my recent

Miyakojima Irabu Bridge

The Miyakojima paradox

For my third trip to Okinawa, it was time to explore the last of the main islands I hadn’t visited yet: Miyako Island or Miyakojima in Japanese. Miyako is known for the Irabu Bridge, the longest toll-free bridge in Japan, and famous for cavern diving among Japanese scuba divers.  To my greatest surprise, it was where I had the most fun of all the
