Last Chance to Nominate for the DIVE Travel Awards 2019

dta newsletter title

77 destinations, 438 dive centres or resorts, 205 liveaboards, and 2 days left to nominate your favourites in the 2019 DIVE Travel Awards

As always, the late rush has seen some changes - some nominees are more secure in their positions, others have - well - floundered. There may be more changes to come, but there's not a lot of time to do it. Still, when you think how many sports matches are won in the dying seconds of the game, and not the hours beforehand...
