Just Two Weeks Left to Vote for Your Favourites!
There are just under two weeks left to go until voting in the 2019 DIVE Travel Awards closes, and the last two weeks have seen some pretty big moves in the Top 25 destinations, dive centres and liveaboards.
One of the biggest movers over the last two weeks has been Egypt in the destinations category, surging past Mexico which took second place back at the beginning of September. A late surge by Curaçao puts the island on the verge of breaking into the Top 10, and there is plenty of opportunity for change in the middle of the pack.
In the dive centres and resorts category, last year's winner Siladen Resort and Spa has moved into second place after languishing for much of the competition so far in third. Dressel Divers maintains its fourth position as top of the non-Indonesian dive centres, with Papua Paradise and Gangga Island Resort catching up after gathering a lot of votes this week. Sharm el Sheikh's Elite Diving keeps an Egyptian dive centre in the Top 10, and although Atlantic Scuba has slipped to 14th, it's still in a very respectable position for a UK dive centre - with none of the mid-table places secure.
The top of the liveaboard leaderboard remains unchanged since the last update, however, as with destinations and dive centres, that does not mean it will remain unchanged by 31 October. Palau Siren and Pelagian picked up a fair few votes over the last two weeks which pushed a lot of other boats downwards, with Oceania, FeBrina and Bella1 picking up the pace mid-table.
There will be one final update on Tuesday, 29 October, before voting closes at midnight (GMT) on 31 October. Make sure you spread the word so your favourites don't miss out!
