Why Choose Dive The World?

...for Your Diving Holiday Booking

There are countless dive trip operators out there. As with any other industry, there are good and there are bad. We work with only the best scuba operators to ensure that you spend a hassle-free holiday DIVING.

Dive The World staff meeting, Phuket, Thailand

You don't need to worry about your regulator not working when you are 20 metres down. We use only a select list of operators whom we know and trust. We visit our operators to check out their boats, facilities and accommodation before recommending them to you. If we discover they are not good enough we simply don't feature them.

Our goal is to meet your needs as a diver and not just to grab your money and send you on your way. We want to build lasting relationships with you and your diving buddies. In order to get you back as a return customer, we understand that we need to provide the best service to you so you won't get an attitude from our staff. Our prices are competitive and our service is second to none!. Want to know who we are? Find out more about us.

Take full advantage of your dive holiday. Relax, have fun, and let us sort through the winners and losers in the scuba world for you.

8 Great Reasons to Book with Dive The World

You benefit from choosing Dive The World because:

• You pay the best price

We charge you NO commission or agents' fee so we can GUARANTEE that our price is no more (and sometimes less!) than what you would pay if you booked directly with any of the operators.

Dive The World maintains the widest and most up-to-date range of special offer information you will find anywhere. The dive specials on our blog are constantly updated. You can also find liveaboard specials and last minute deals highlighted in yellow on our calendar of departures or on the boat departure schedules on our liveaboards website.

• You have a bigger choice

We match your requirements against the offerings of hundreds of scuba diving holidays before we offer you an objective and independent recommendation!

• You can take advantage of our insider knowledge

When you use our services to find your best match, you can be sure that our descriptions are free of any dive operators' exaggerated marketing-speak. We know the operators and their boats and resorts, so we can carefully match your requirements, and tell you exactly what to expect.

• You'll receive a rapid response and personalised expert advice

From the moment you send an enquiry, you will be communicating with an experienced, knowledgeable member of the Dive The World Team. Their goal is to answer all your questions fully and quickly and to make recommendations on what is right for you. Our friendly staff will guide you through the process and make booking your adventure as hassle-free as possible. Don't just take our word for it, read what our customers say, or have a look at our Trip Advisor reviews at the bottom of this page.

• You're not being used to fill our boats

We're independent agents. Our priority is to You, to see that you get what you expect, at the best price. Why? Because we want you to be so thoroughly delighted that you'll want to use us again to book your diving holiday next year!
