Enjoy Summer Destination Dives with a Prescription Scuba Mask!

There are two kinds of vacationers in the world: those who scuba and those who don’t. It’s not that we have anything against the latter. The world’s teeming with above-sea attractions: the Pyramids, the Louvre, the statue of Christ the Redeemer, the London Eye, and countless other exciting spots. But while everyone else snaps selfies in front of man-made structures, the rest of us go deep. We sink into a deep blue world teeming with exotic sea creatures, sunken relics, and exotic plant life.

When it comes to scuba-centric vacations, your options are almost limitless. In the interest of helping you maximize your leisure time, however, allow us to make just a few suggestions.

Caribbean Sea

For some, the Caribbean Sea is a backyard scuba site bursting with possibilities. If you have never been diving in the Caribbean before, we suggest that you start with the Cayman Islands, an island group that boasts a unique dive site for each day of the year. With dive names like Jackson’s Bight and Stingray City, the Caymans seem to offer a little something for everyone.

If you don’t choose the Caymans, there’s always the Bahamas. For ideas on great diving options in the Bahamas, you need look no further than Trip Advisor’s collection of the 10 Best Diving Resorts. On this site, actual divers have recorded their real experiences for your edification. You could do worse than starting your vacation research there.

Atlantic Ocean

Right next door to the Caribbean Sea is the larger, colder Atlantic Ocean. Vast in size, it’s home to some of the world’s best dives.

If you are looking for great dives but do not want to pay the tab for an international trip, the coast of Florida is a great place to start. The good news is that it almost doesn’t matter where you choose to stay, either.

Looking much like a long finger pointing into the blue oceanic waters, many of the best snorkeling in Florida are within a few short hours drive from just about anywhere in the state. You could dive from spots at the top of the state to the bottom of the Florida Keys – and every place in between (Visit Florida).

A bit further afield, you will find the Azores, a tiny archipelago almost smack in the center of the Atlantic. While the travel time may exceed that of Florida, you will be richly rewarded for your efforts. Because of their unique location in the ocean, dive sites in the Azores are said to be perfect for close encounters with some of the planet’s larger aquatic species: whales, mako sharks, and mantas.


Given the sheer size of the Pacific Ocean, it makes sense that many of the world’s top dive sites are speckled throughout this vast swath of blue.

It would be hard to recommend spots in the Pacific without mentioning Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. There is nothing else like it in the world. With over 2,900 individual reefs making up the entire reef system, it is not a dive site that one visits quickly on a weekend. The Great Barrier Reef is a destination dive well worthy of the reputation that it has earned.

If you are ready to move past the Great Barrier Reef, you could do worse than to jet over to the Maldives. With hundreds of isolated, uninhabited islands ready to explore, this island chain has become “hugely popular” in the dive community. You won’t want to miss out.

But when it comes to the South Pacific, perhaps no other country evokes feelings of adventure than Fiji.

Fiji is blessed with 333 tropical islands that are home to some of the happiest people on Earth. Known for its luxurious private-islands, all-inclusive resorts, top spas, culinary destinations and outdoor adventures, Fiji is most widely celebrated for its culture, which uniquely welcomes visitors home (Fiji).

A perfect destination for underwater photographers, Fiji likewise boasts plenty of other attractions for non-diving travel partners, should you be bringing any of those types along with you.
