At Dive The World, we all have our own favourite marine creatures and we know you have too! For some, diving with sharks and huge schools of fish is the ultimate; others long to dive with manta rays; underwater photographers go on macro diving trips to seek out seahorses, flamboyant cuttlefish and other incredible macro wonders.
Whatever your dream underwater encounter, one thing is certain: a little prior knowledge can improve your enjoyment of a scuba diving trip immensely. Dive The World is the No. 1 authority on scuba diving vacations. It is also the best online resource for fascinating information on your favourite marine creatures and where you can dive with them.
