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.
