dta newsletter title

Just two weeks left to go to nominate your favourite destinations, dive centres or resorts, and liveaboards for the 2019 DIVE Travel Awards

As we approach the final countdown for the nomination phase of this year's DIVE Travel Awards, we have so far received nominations for 63 destinations, 299 dive centres or resorts and 154 liveaboards. Since our last update on 31 May, the Top 25 in each category has seen some popular names drop in and out of the dive centres and liveaboards categories, although little has changed in the list of destinations. 

There are a handful of nominees in each category who are almost certain to go through to the final vote, but many positions lower down the Top 25 are up for grabs - one last push could mean could make a lot of difference.
