Time to tick off the next destination!
This time last year the world was still turned upside down and it was hard to plan for anything. Fast forward 12 months and the world is now re-open. After two years of sitting in lockdown, life is finally happening again and doesn’t it feel good!
Memories of travel kept us going through lockdown and you never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory! The time is now to tick off the next destination on your bucket list! Firm favourites are the Galapagos and Indonesia.
Scuba Travel has a wealth of personal experience in both of these destinations so use our expertise to plan your 2023 trips. Get a travel date on the calendar to look forward to.

Fancy some guaranteed Summer sunshine?
Escape the British summer (normally always a washout) and head to the Red Sea for guaranteed Egyptian sunshine. Diving in the red sea is magnificent at the moment, the water is a lovely 28/29C so just shorties are needed. The water is clear and blue and fish life is abundant. The north is ideal for all levels of divers including beginners. The south is better suited to those divers with 50 dives or more. Flights from Gatwick with TUI are included in our Red Sea holidays on Hurricane and Whirlwind GUARANTEED departures. (Current August flight prices are more than £800 plus per person flight only, so these trips are a bargain!)
Dive the Northern Red Sea on Whirlwind from £1095 inc flights
Dive the Southern & Northern Red Sea on Hurricane from £1095 inc flights.
For the wreck lovers, we have Get Wrecked on Hurricane 15-22nd Aug, £1145 inc flights.

Last weeks Southern Red Sea sightings included Hammerheads, Mantas and Threshersharks. If you want to find out what we'll see next week, the best way is to secure your space on Hurricane today.

Or how about some Winter Sun?
Winter sunshine can be found in the picture postcard Maldives. Male the capital can be reached on a direct flight from London Heathrow with British Airways between November & March. Escape the maddening Christmas shopping crowds and jump on a liveaboard to enjoy the “Best of The Maldives”. Manta, sharks, eagle rays and so much more are on this classic Maldives itinerary.

Whirlwind in August from £1095 inc flights from Gatwick
We often talk about the boat in the newsletters but this week we will mention one of the the most important part of any liveabaord, the staff. One of the most frequent feedback we get from Whirlwind is how good the staff is:
The guides were amazing. They were both knowledgeable, helpful and fun. Nothing was too much trouble. All with a smile. We’d happily dive with them again
The crew have been excellent and couldn’t do enough for us all. It would be too difficult to single out a single member as everyone, from the food service to the dive assistants right through to the guides have been superb.

Hurricane in August from £1095 inc flts from Gatwick
July has been an amazing month in the Red Sea onboard Hurricane, and we think August will be even better. Jump onboard and see what the outstanding Red Sea can offer.

This was a simply an outstanding week from beginning to end; the crew were excellent to a fault, attentive and helpful every minute and hour of the day. The boat was very comfortable and the facilities all in great order post the refit. The food in particular was highly commendable, I have nothing but praise for the week overall.
