The Scores on the Travel Awards Doors as of 1 September
The first month's vote has seen the leaderboard take shape as the Top 25 scuba diving destinations, dive centres and resorts, and liveaboards complete for the top spot in this year's DIVE Travel Awards
If you've been following this year's awards then you'll know it's been the largest we've run so far, with 108 different destinations, 329 liveaboards and almost 1100 different dive centres and resorts having been nominated. Although only the Top 25 went though to the vote, we decided that in this difficult year, we'd publish the complete list of nominations to let your favourites know how much they are appreciated. You can find the complete list at this link.
So - here's the current leaderboard for this year's Travel Awards. We've added positions relative to last year's final placings for those nominees that made it into last year's Top 25, although there are quite a lot of fresh faces for 2020, especially in the dive centre/resort category.
DIVE Travel Awards FAQ
My favourite was nominated but I can't vote for them.
Each year, only the Top 25 in each category of nominations go through to the final vote. The Top 10 will receive recognition as the best dive centres in the world. We'd love to include everyone who made it onto the list, but that would be impossible. We've published a complete list of all the nominations at this link.
How can that company have so many votes?
Some people take the awards more seriously than others. The vote is free and fair and open to all, and some operators will spread the word to as many people as they can. Plus, you'd be amazed at the loyalty some dive centres can command from their customers.
Why have you combined some dive centres?
We wanted to give as many dive centres and resorts as possible the chance to succeed, rather than have a handful of big names dominate the competition. We appreciate that each dive centre is run by its own unique complement of staff, but this way more names will appear on the list. The duplicates have been named in the order they placed as nominees, and will receive the same recognition as winners if they are successful.
Why are you asking for my e-mail address?
Firstly and foremostly, to prevent fraud. Secondly, because it signs up you (if you consent, of course) to our completely free and very fantastic weekly newsletter!
