Picking Your Next Dive Destination
1 Budget For most divers, budget is the first thing to consider when deciding where to go. Once you know how much money you have allotted for your trip, do some research into your top three destinations to figure out the total costs of airfare, accommodations and diving for your entire stay.
2 Diving Style Some divers want to plunge into the abyss, riding fast drifts along deep walls. Some are all about wrecks or caves. Others prefer to max out their bottom time looking for exotic fish in shallow reefs. Don’t just assume a destination is right for you simply because a lot of divers go there. Make sure its diving suits your interests.
3 Season Every dive destination has high and low seasons. For some, the seasonal changes can be dramatic. And temperature changes aren’t the only thing to consider. If you’re eyeing a certain animal encounter, check to make sure you’re hitting the right time of year.
