The Riviera Maya – Mexico

Located in Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula, The Riviera Maya is Mexico’s top holiday resort destination and highly regarded by divers. The deep sinkholes known as cenotes are one of the area’s most famous features.

Silfra Gap - Iceland

Diving in Iceland? Yes, really! Dry-suits are a year-round essential, but Iceland‘s most famous dive site, Silfra – or the Silfra Fissure – has some of the clearest water to be found on the planet.

Widely regarded as one of the most spectacular dives in the world, Silfra itself is relatively unpopulated by marine life, but there are plenty of other places in Iceland to discover as well. Of particular note are Arnarnesstrýtur and Strýtan, geothermal chimneys pumping volcanically heated, mineral-rich water directly into the cold ocean.

The Red Sea
