Unique creatures, incredible marine landscapes or a once in a lifetime experience, is what the below destinations offer. Keep reading for more about Planet Dive Holidays' most unique diving destinations…


planet dive blue hole 1000

The underwater topography is spectacular in Gozo. Expect everything from calm bays to deep caverns and swim-throughs, and of course the world famous Blue Hole which offers an unforgettable dive into clear waters. Elsewhere around the island you can discover big drop-offs, grottos and stunning underwater scenery. Plus, there is plenty of marine life to enjoy too.


planet dive azura quilalea

Mozambique is bursting with pristine beaches and enigmatic offshore islands. And with more than 1,500 miles of coastline just waiting to be discovered, the diving here is truly unique. Explore mangrove lagoons and dive around remote archipelagos while staying at Robinson-Crusoe style island hideaways. Whale sharks and manta rays visit for the plankton-rich water and humpback whales pass through the Mozambique Channel on their journey from the Antarctic, meaning truly incredible experiences are a real possibility at certain times of year.


planet dive fundu lagoon

Diving in Zanzibar is like diving in a natural aquarium, such is the clarity of the water and sheer diversity of marine life on offer. With more than 30 dive sites around the island including reef, wall and wreck diving, Zanzibar has a little something for everyone. Visit the north of the island where strong currents create a haven for big fish such as kingfish and tuna, then kick back on the beach after a busy day in the water and relax in paradise.

Cayman Islands

Huge, deep drop-offs and enigmatic wreck dives combine with stunning coral formations to make the Cayman Islands a world-class dive destination. Grand Cayman has the most popular dive sites, with the North Wall plunging down more than 1,800 metres. Plus, there’s a chance to glimpse spotted eagle rays and sea turtles.


plasnet dive galapagos

Lying 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, the awe-inspiring Galápagos Islands are home to many creatures that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. This completely unique habitat was isolated from human interaction for thousands of years, meaning life evolved in its own special way. The stunning marine environment here might just help you to see the world in a completely new way.


All of the above five dive destinations offer something a little out of the ordinary. Whether it’s unique marine life, unusual topography or incredible conditions, choose to dive here and you can be sure of an unforgettable diving holiday. Of course, there are more world-class diving destinations on offer around the world, including the Dutch Antilles, the Bahamas, Indonesia, liveaboards in Oman and many more.
