How The DTA Leaderboard Looks With One Month Remaning
There have been a lot of changes during the second month of the 2020 DIVE Travel Awards Vote – so it's time to check in on the Top 25 scuba diving destinations, dive centres and resorts, and liveaboards as they enter the final month of voting
In the largest travel awards we've run to date, 108 different destinations, 329 liveaboards and almost 1100 different dive centres and resorts were nominated for an award during the opening months of May and June. The Top 25 nominees in each category went through to the final vote, which has been underway since the beginning of September.
We appreciate that this year has been extraordinarily difficult for the worldwide dive business; some have even questioned why we would run our travel awards in a year when travel has been so heavily restricted – but we wanted to keep the scuba diving conversation going and try and let our favourite operators know that people out there really still care, and many can't wait to visit just as soon as it's possible to do so.
We've published the complete list of nominees at this link, but over the next month we'll be looking to see who makes the Top 10 and win the award as best destination, dive centre or resort, and liveaboard in the world – and that, dear readers, is all down to you.
Here's the current leaderboard as of 30 September (click here for last month's update). Some operators have made large strides up the rankings thanks to extensive social media campaigns, but the competition is most intense in the last month in the run-up to the finish, and there is plenty of room for change between now and the vote closing at midnight (GMT) on the 31 October.
