Great Blue Hole

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 12 votes

The Blue Hole is a sunken underwater cave of approximately one thousand feet wide and three hundred feet deep, located in the center of Lighthouse Reef. From out of the air you have spectacular views of this geological phenomenon. Theories of a meteorite that struck Lighthouse Reef millions of years ago and leaving this huge crater behind are not true. It was formed in one of our ice ages when the land was lowered enough to expose lighthouse reef. Sweet water created holes and cracks in the lime...

Great White Wall

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 9 votes

The Great White Wall has its name because of the many soft coral which can be found below 15 meter. They are actually lavender in color, but the depth gives them a white appearance. Surface conditions can get rough, currents can be strong and so most of the time this site is dived as a drift dive. Often starting or ending near a huge tunnel where you can swim through. It has two exits, one at 10 meter and one at 27 meter, from where you will be entering a new world of colored coral.Gorgonian fan...

Richelieu Rock

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 7 votes

Diving Richelieu Rock in Thailand has become world's top location for diving with whale sharks. The best season for diving with whales is from March to May when these majestic gentle but huge creatures pass by. A sighting of the largest fish living in the ocean has a ten percent success rate. These amazing creatures are rare almost everywhere in the world so consider yourself lucky if you have the opportunity to dive with them. The whales are attracted to this horse shoe shaped splintered rock p...

Kona Manta Ray Night Dive

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 7 votes

It is all about Manta Rays on the Kona Manta Ray Night dive site. There is plenty of other marine life, but tours and crew will focus on attracting mantas with their flashlights and food supplies. The crew will start the Manta Ray dive, by placing lights on the ocean floor aiming upwards. Plankton is attracted by this light and the plankton will attract the Mantas. As thick clouds of these microscopic animals enjoy the lights, manta rays come to feed. Not only plankton but also thousands of minu...

Yongala Wreck

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.9, 10 votes

While there are many shipwrecks along Australia's Great Barrier Reef, one of the best wreck dives is this one, the S.S. Yongala. This ship, made out of steel and timber, sank during a cyclone just about 60 kilometers from Townsville at Cape Bowling Green, taking the lives of all 121 passengers. The wreck lies in the middle of a flat and sandy shipping channel in about 30m of water. You can still see the aft, the rudder and forward masts, engine and steam rooms, toilets, port-holes and most of th...

Ulong Channel

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.9, 7 votes

One of the best adrenaline high dive sites in Palau is Ulong Channel and Reef, sometimes misspelled as Ulung Channel and also known as Ngerumekaol Pass. It is a narrow 20-50 meter wide channel, running from west to east for as long as 1km and splitting part of a huge gorgeous plateau in two. As you expect with such a great underwater canyon, the currents are often strong. It is not uncommon that the direction of the current changes halfway your dive; in which case you should head back in the sam...

Fish Rock Cave

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.8, 6 votes

The only true ocean cave dive in Australia is running 125 meters right through Fish Rock which lies two kilometers south-east of Smoky Cape, South West Rocks. Fish Rock Cave is home to a completely unique ecosystem. The temperature inside the cave is always at least one degree warmer than the surrounding ocean and the water is always clear. Although the Rock is usually prone to current, it is this current that brings the nutrients to the area and attracts the fish life. It is easy to plan your d...

Romblon

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 3.9, 14 votes

Romblon is a province far away from the famous tourist destinations of the Philippines. People in the province are working hard to keep the place green and beautiful and developing it towards an Eco-Tourism Area. Romblon is an island province of the Philippines located in the MIMAROPA (Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan) region in Luzon. The province consists of numerous islands sitting in the Sibuyan Sea. It lies south of Marinduque and Quezon, east of Mindoro, north of Aklan and Capiz, a...

Thistlegorm

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.4, 7 votes

The 126 meter long Thistlegorm was discovered in 1956 by Jacques Cousteau and is one of the most famous wrecks in the world. Thistlegorm is the local name of a British vessel, which was attacked from the air and sunk in 1941 because it carried a lot of war supplies such as guns, bombs and mines. Today you can still see items such as rifles, motor bikes, train carriages and even trucks. The stern section of the wreck lies almost horizontal to the sea bed; the rest of the wreck is nearly upright. ...

Captain Keith Tibbetts

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.4, 5 votes

A relatively young wreck dive is the famous MV. Captain Keith Tibbetts, a huge 330 foot long Russian Brigadier Type II Class frigate that was scuttled on the north shore of Cayman Brac in September 1996. The wreck is known by the name Russian Destroyer #356 and was built in 1984 in Nadhodka, U.S.S.R. She was built for the Cuban navy but the ship hasn't participated in any great battles as long as she was in service. When she was sold to the Cayman Islands, she was renamed Captain Keith Tibbe...
