6 Dive Sites To Add To Your Scuba Bucket List
If you’re a regular diver, you lead a pretty interesting life already. Traveling to exotic places, meeting new people, learning about and exploring nature, viewing the most beautiful sights of the underwater world, and getting fit in the process. In fact, scuba diving (as a New Year’s Resolution) coalesces the most common resolutions made each year.
But even divers have their own New Year resolutions; they can get bored- dive less over the years- especially if they’ve been diving the same spots over and over again. A new year calls for adding some new and unique destinations onto your scuba bucket list.
Iceland is one of the most spectacular places to visit, even more so to dive in. The island was formed on the diverging point of the North American and European tectonic plates, and these plates are moving apart an average of two centimeters per year. You can grab a dry suit and dive in the crack right in between them. Read More
Witness the second largest animal migration - after the Great Wildebeest migration in East Africa – the Sardine Run, along the South African coastline. Approximately 10 million sardines (in a shoal of around 7km in length and 1.5km in width) migrate from Cape Point towards the port of Durban, attracting a diversity of predators (common dolphins, a variety of shark species, game fish, birds, seals, penguins, and humpback whales)- a spectacular sight for scuba divers and a dream for photographers.

This beautiful limestone cave is quite the adventure for any cave diver. With over 30,000 feet of surveyed cave, you can spend months exploring this cave and still not see it entirely. To this day, there are cave divers from North Central Florida who are still mapping new sections of it. Read More
In between Malawi, Mozambique, and Tanzania lies the third largest lake in Africa, Lake Malawi. Diving in Lake Malawi is like diving in an aquarium; it’s full of beautifully colored fish. Known for its cichlids, Lake Malawi contains 30% of all known cichlid species, almost all of which are endemic to the lake, and over 1000 species to observe. Read More
Every summer, in the Gulf of Mexico, hundreds of whale sharks gather for their largest ever-known feeding aggregation of fish eggs, specifically bonito tuna eggs. Watch one gentle giant after the other pass you by, with an open mouth, filtering plankton and eggs, coupled with a manta spectacle right below them – a surreal experience. Read More

In reality, most divers come to Ecuador to dive the Galapagos Islands. With that said, this is one of the most unique dive locations in the world, with species here that you will see literally nowhere else on earth.
The Apo Reef: A pristine reef with rich life, located in the west of occidental Mindoro (Philippines), at the northern tip of the coral triangle. Don't confuse Apo Island with the identically named island in Negros oriental.
