Diving holidays in the Caribbean combine ease of access for those travelling from the UK with exciting scuba diving encounters and crystal clear waters. With direct flights departing from a variety of UK airports, some of the region’s best dive sites can be reached within a 10-hour flight. The conditions are ideal for beginners looking to take their first breaths underwater, as well as more experienced divers hoping to hone their skills and see a wide array of marine species. Accommodation is varied and ideal for discerning divers looking to enjoy a spot of luxury, and the setting could not be more beautiful, with white sand beaches and turquoise waters.

Reefscape Travel can recommend the right island for divers and snorkellers, with the Caribbean offering a range of scuba diving experiences. Shark enthusiasts will be thrilled by up close encounters with great hammerheads, Caribbean reef sharks and nurse sharks in the Bahamas, while the sloping reefs of Grenada showcase the reef’s gentler inhabitants; green and hawksbill turtles, clouds of creole wrasses and seagrass beds filled with seahorses. Bonaire is famous for excellent access to shore diving, where experienced divers can fill a tank and amble along the coast picking and choosing the best dive sites and snorkel spots, with a colourful array of soft corals stealing the show.
