With the festive season fast approaching you may be dreaming of the ultimate diving escape. November’s ScubaEarth Featured Destinations will definitely get you in the mood for tropical travel. Here is a taster of the types of exotic encounters you can expect from this month’s destinations.
Looking for an escape to another world? Look no further than the Seychelles archipelago. This 115-island paradise in the Indian Ocean has all the ingredients for the perfect romantic getaway. Sun, sand and sublime topaz waters will seduce you topside, whilst beneath there is a vast and idyllic landscape to tempt the adventurous soul. Coral encrusted wrecks, sculptured granite rocks and terraced walls set the scene for the real stars of the show, the incredibly rich marine life that frequent these waters. The African Pygmy Angelfish, Napoleon Wrasse, Longnose Hawfish, giant sea turtles and even the enigmatic whale shark have all been spotted here.
Bay Islands of Honduras
Home to the second longest reef on the world, the Mesiamerican Barrier Reef, the Bay Islands off mainland Honduras offers some of the most lucrative diving spoils in the Caribbean. The main islands, Roatan, Utila, Guanaja and Cayos Cochinos provide divers with the chance to come across nearly every species of marine life found in the whole of the Caribbean. Combine this with the untouched reefs, walls, channels, pinnacles and caverns and you have an ultimate dive destination. Top dives recommended on ScubaEarth include Spooky Channel, Mary’s Place and night diving at Doc’s elbow.
