Because of the travelling I have been to many dive sites that are in the lists of best sites in the world. Most divers are envious when they see my dive logbook. It’s always nice when diving to talk with the local Divemasters and see how everything is differently “organized” in all parts of the world.
Diving is never our main goal but if possible we will do 1 or 2 dives in a country if the diving is ok! (I am a little bit spoiled).
About the Diving gems; I won a 2 week diving trip to Sudan, that was the best diving ever! Mantas, schools of hammerhead sharks, reef sharks and almost anything else. Malapascua Island in the Philippines for viewing the amazing thresher sharks, wreck diving on the SS Coolidge in Vanuatu. Diving in Silfra, Pingvellir NP, in Iceland. No fish but 200 m+ visibility. Blue Hole in Belize, Poor Knights in New-Zealand, Galapagos, Seychelles, Maldives.etc.
Typing this I feel really blessed I’ve seen so much already!
