3 fantastic diving destinations of the World
With earth’s surface consisting of 70% water, it is highly unlikely that you will run out of places to discover scuba dive in your lifetime. As a matter of fact, there are many different exotic locales that considered diving destinations specifically because of the uniqueness that can only be found in the waters surrounding it. We would like to share with you three.
#1 The Great Barrier Reef, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef would most likely be on the bucket list of every single diver in the world. No other underwater place on earth garners more attention than this large stretch of water of the coast of Queensland, which is located on the southeastern coast of Australia, in the Coral Sea. This amazing coral formation is 2300 km in length and is a complete ecosystem in itself. When visiting Queensland, Australia you should find your way to the Pro Dive Cairns Dive Shop.
#2 Red Sea, Egypt
The Red Sea is home to one of 7 wonders of the undersea world. Diving off the coast of Egypt in the Red Sea you will be greeted by many species of fish that are only found in the Red Sea. You never know when you could come face to face with several species of shark including the impressive Hammerhead. There are more than 1000 species of fish, hard and soft coral, and too many invertebrates to mention here. The red sea is probably one of the best diving
destinations. When visiting Egypt and you planning on doing some diving in the Red Sea, you may would like to contact Red Sea Divers Dive Shop.
#3 Caño Island, Costa Rica
The Caño Island, by many, is considered the absolute best place to go diving when in Costa Rica. It is one of the best diving destinations in Central America. The area in and around the island is protected and gathering shells and other sea creatures are prohibited. This is their way of preserving the integrity of the ecosystem and to ensure all of the sea creatures including thousands of species of fish, shark, rays, and coral. If the Caño Island off the coast of Costa Rica is your destination, be sure to checkout the Costa Rica Dive and Surf Dive Shop.
Finding a good local diving centre is important
Ask any experienced divers the most dangerous part of any dive is the unknown. If you are unfamiliar with the area that you are diving you have no idea what could be lurking just out of sight. That is why most PADI (Professional Association of Dive Instructors) instructors all highly recommend finding a local dive shop in the area of your destination that you plan to go diving.
The people running the shop should be able to help educate you and your dive party on all of the local dive spots and what you should be avoiding. Their experience is invaluable and is one way to help ensure that your diving experience will exceed your expectations. We hope by including the name of a local dive group you will take advantage of it. Try to contact them when you arrive at one of the three destinations in this article.
