Over these many years, I've been lucky enough to be able to travel to some of the top diving destinations in the world that would make most seasoned divers squirm in jealously.
Now these aren't in any particular order but from top to bottom, these are all incredible sites that are worth making travel plans exclusively for.
What makes Palau a top favourite is that it is filled with a wide assortment of underwater features including wrecks, caves, channels, walls, and holes.
Highlights here include spectacular reefs that have stayed healthy despite changes in climate.
Known to be a luxe resort destination, this tropic nation is also a wonderland of reefs, blue lagoons, and the best of marine life.
During our two days of diving here, we were treated with the most incredible experience of being encircled by at least 15 nurse sharks.
Off every coast and conveniently located by most resorts, there are dive sites that offer vibrant reefs, light beam-filled caverns and sunken ships to explore.
