Guides to the best diving in the world, region by region

In addition to my World Dive Map, if you want to explore the best scuba diving destinations region by region, I recommend reading the following pages:

  • From Spain to Greece, the Mediterranean Sea in Southern Europe is a long-time favourite in the summer for European divers. However, experienced divers know the cold waters of Northern Europe can be dived all year-long with a drysuit to explore historic shipwrecks or surprising cold water marine life such as the seals or the basking sharks. Discover where is the Best diving in Europe.
  • The Asia-Pacific region might be the number one regions for scuba divers all over the world. With a combination of impressive coral reefs, pelagic action and affordable cost, South-East Asia especially became the go-to destinations for beginners divers. The Pacific region has some even more exciting promises but the cost is much higher so it usually a favourite among experienced divers only. Discover where is the Best diving in Asia & the Pacific.
  • While the Caribbean Islands are well known for tropical holidays by American like European scuba divers, the American continent is also full of incredible scuba diving adventures in warm like colder waters. Discover where is the Best diving in the Americas & the Caribbean.
  • Egypt is the number one destinations for European scuba divers thanks to its warm waters and affordable costs. However, the African continent boasts incredible dive sites especially in the Indian Ocean on its southeastern coast. Discover where is the Best diving in Africa & the Middle-East.

  1. I absolutely love this map! It must have taken so much time to create it….? I am working on a similar thing but it just takes forever and there are far too many places where I would like to go diving. Great work 🙂 Thanks for that – just clicking through it to see if any of these places are missing on my list 😉
