French Polynesia joins the vote for world beater
Nominations closed for our poll of the world's top DIVE destination 2017 with French Polynesia being added to the list of 18 already included.
You now have three months to vote for your favourites - polling closes on 31 December 2016. You can only vote once and you can vote for up to three destinations.
So far we have received more than 36,000 votes and Indonesian is emerging as a clear leader with 56% of the total vote (20,509 votes). The rest of the top ten in descending order are the Philippines, the Maldives, the Red Sea, Australia, Thailand, Papua New Guinea, the Bahamas, Malaysia and the Galápagos.
Voting is very tight with less than a couple of votes separating some destinations and countries dropping out and entering the top 10 as the results come in.
