A Look at What's Coming Up

When planning your next dive trip there are lots of things to consider like the weather, the diving conditions, and where is next on your list of places to go.

Let us help you along by gazing into our crystal balls at what lies ahead in the world of diving during the December 2011 to February 2012 period ...

Thailand and Myanmar Diving High Season

The diving season for Thailand and Myanmar's (Burma) best dive destinations begins in October and runs through to April. So this period is slap bang during the best time to dive in Thailand or even Burma!

Sharks are a common sight at the Galapagos and Maldives, as well as some of the dive sites in Thailand and Myanmar

Discover the wonders of Thailand's Andaman Sea on a liveaboard cruise with the world-renowned dive sites of the Similan Islands, Richelieu Rock, Surin Islands, Hin Daeng and Hin Muang, most of which have now been awarded national park status. You'll be treated to beautiful healthy soft and hard corals, dramatic granite boulder formations, vibrant marine life and a huge diversity of fish. Manta rays, a variety of sharks and whale sharks are frequent visitors to some of these sites too.

A little further north is the untouched underwater paradise of the Mergui region of Myanmar. Divers who take a Burma liveaboard cruise to dive here often feel a sense of privilege at witnessing the pristine seascape with beautiful hard corals, expansive sea fans and an abundance of marine life including sharks and manta rays.

Best visibility in the Maldives

If you're thinking of experiencing the diving in the Maldives then soon is the time to do it! The Maldives normally enjoys the best visibility from December to March. So to see a dream destination at its very clearest, this is the time to go!

There are excellent colourful coral reefs to be explored with an abundance of fish life such as parrotfish, snappers, sweetlips and Napoleon wrasse. Away from the reefs you'll want to enjoy the best conditions possible for spotting larger marine creatures such as manta rays, eagle rays and sharks.

Warmer Waters in Galapagos

January sees the start of the wet season in the Galapagos and this is when water temperatures are warmer, fluctuating between 20-28°C. So if you prefer warmer water, the early part of the year is a great time to go!

Feeling snug, you'll be able to relax and enjoy the huge diversity and dense populations of marine life including Galapagos sharks, hammerhead sharks, sea lions, eagle rays, turtles, seals and even whale sharks. Diving here is a phenomenal experience and for many divers it represents the pinnacle of their diving career.
