Make 2017 plans for world’s most sought-after liveaboards

September 16th, 2015

Not all dive destinations are the same. We at Dive The World understand that and we want to make sure you get to enjoy your dream scuba diving holiday.

Diving with mantas in Mexico - could be youSo it frustrates us when we cannot make that happen due to availability issues. Some places like the Red Sea have a lot of spaces and it isn’t always necessary to book too far ahead.

Others need some advance planning, and sometimes these are among the best dive destinations in the world. So get organised before it is too late.

If you are thinking of one day diving the unique Cocos Island, Costa Rica, or the wonders of Mexico or indeed the nature-lovers mecca of Galapagos then please book ahead.

Plan now to step on board a liveaboard like Galapagos SkyWe have some customers who try to arrange their holidays to these places just a few short months ahead of time.

It is sad to witness their disappointment when they are told there are no liveaboard spaces for them at all around the time they want to visit.

So look now at the late 2016 and 2017 liveaboard schedules in these amazing destinations. Check out our Calendar of Departures to see what’s available when you are! Now is the time to start making plans for then to ensure you are not disappointed.

Malaysia currency drop means cheap diving holidays

September 3rd, 2015

There are many elements that go into Dive The World’s efforts to give you the best deals. We even keep an eye on the foreign exchange markets since sometimes these can mean the best ‘discounts’ around.

In recent months the Malaysian ringgit has been tanking against all the major currencies. So your dollar/pound/euro goes waaaay further than it did just a few months ago.

Slide slide slippity slide...now is the time to book your dives

Check out the movement above. In the last 120 days the USD has gone from buying you about MYR 3.55 to over MYR 4.20. That’s almost a 20% jump.

Now that’s a discount! There have been similar slides against the EURO and the GBP.

You're owed a scuba holiday, now is the time to strike

If you combine these extraordinary exchange rates with the Malaysia offers that we are currently promoting… Dang it is cheap to go scuba dive Malaysia these days! There are both liveaboard and resort specials currently running for Sipadan/ Mabul/ Kapalai.

The Ringgit has been taking a hell of a pounding

What are you waiting for? The stars could not be aligning any better than they are right now. Get in touch if you are ready to act now.

You don’t have to travel straight away. Just book and go at a later date but take advantage of this perfect storm which makes booking now your best value-for-money option.

So get off that couch and act now to take advantage of these great discounts.

Do more dives at Sipadan by enduring life on board the Celebes Explorer!Not everyone is content with the Celebes Explorer. Don’t expect it to be as polished or comfortable as previous liveaboards you have been on.
