The Birthplace of Dive Vacations

Where Excitement Comes Easy

The region that invented the dive vacation remains a prime go-to for underwater enjoyment and excitement. At dozens of premier resorts, divers can walk right from a beachfront room onto a dive boat, with spectacular reefs just a short cruise away. Equally convenient are shore dives with easy access from beachfront parks or parking areas, and liveaboards that bring divers right to the reef. And once underwater, there is no lack of variety to discover—from colorful coral gardens to steep walls and dramatic underwater pinnacles. There are shark dives and high-energy drifts for the adventurous, shipwrecks for the curious, and macro-critter hunts for the meticulous. And once the diving day is done, all the pleasures of the island lifestyle await on shore.
