We're all in this together. Staying home, staying safe and practicing social distancing to help stem the global COVID-19 pandemic. And while we await for our return to the sport we love, we can dream and plan. Whether it's scheduling a timely revisit to a favorite destination, or crafting a new adventure in a place that's long captured your imagination, we're here to help turn your diving dreams into reality, and put your vacation plans in action.

Caradonna's Digital Dive Briefs are an ongoing series of live webinar presentations and archived programming covering the global dive travel market. Presentations highlight the unique attractions and stories of the world's diving destinations and deliver the most current developments in the return of the dive travel market.
