It's the 4th month of the year already! For some of us that means that summer is around the corner. For all of us it means that time is flying by and it is time to make plans to dive in 2015. So take 5 minutes break from that boring thing you were doing and let us whisk you off to a world of sunshine, clear blue water and beautiful creatures illuminating your field of vision.
It's our latest newsletter and it's full of nuggets of fascinating news from the underwater world. From diving with little kids to encounters with whales, from getting a taste of a Palau liveaboard to helping you plan your next dream dive package – it's all here.

Striving always to bring you, our customers, the finest diving spots in the world, we have added Palau as our latest new destination. Already a lot of people have booked with us to visit this amazing Pacific island paradise – and with good reason. This gorgeous island chain is blessed with clear, clean water washing pristine, multi-coloured reefs. There are enough sharks, manta rays and big schools of fish to impress even the most well-travelled diver.
You can also experience the bizarre sensation of snorkelling with thousands of stingless jellyfish in an island lake. Add to this the WWII wreck diving possibilities, plus reef dives where bullets, shells and artillery from 1944 lie amid pristine fields of hard coral, and you can see why a week on a liveaboard in Palau is a 'must do' for so many scuba enthusiasts! Check out what happened when Dive The World visited Palau just last month in our Palau trip report below.
Here are some of the newest members of the Dive The World family:
Mexico: Socorro luxury liveaboard - Southern Sport.
Red Sea: budget liveaboard - Emperor Asmaa.
As you probably saw on all the mainstream news channels and all over the blogosphere our 2014 award went to ... Maldives Aggressor.
With consistently positive reviews like this, the Maldives Aggressor is a worthy winner: "The boat was beautiful and the staff was excellent-they were friendly, knowledgeable, safety conscious, and went out of their way to meet everyone's needs. I rented a BCD and regulators and they were in good condition. A fantastic trip all around!" - Robin Waxman, USA.
