DIVE Travel Awards 2020 | Nominations are Open!


The world has changed. Now more than ever, the scuba diving community needs our support – so let's celebrate our favourite destinations, dive centres, resorts and liveaboards in this year's DIVE Travel Awards

With lockdown restrictions starting to ease around the world, scuba diving is slowly finding its way back in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. There are signs that some international travel restrictions will start to be lifted in the next few months, no doubt bringing welcome respite to many people whose livelihoods depend on travel and tourism.

This year, we've added a comments section to our nominations form for our 2020 DIVE Travel Awards. You can nominate up to three scuba diving destinations, dive centres/resorts and liveaboards, then pick one of your favourites and let us know why you love them so much. Was it the people that made the difference, the dive staff or the guides and instructors? Was it the spectacular underwater scenery or animal encounters? Was it the ease of travel or the quality of the coffee that the crew made in the morning? There are so many reasons to be delighted with our diving, so tell us a little about it, and we'll publish a selection of the best comments to let the dive operators know.

Nominations will run from 1 June until Friday, 31 July, after which the 25 from each category with the largest number of nominations will be put through to a vote to decide the Top 10. The vote will begin on Monday, 3 August and run until Wednesday, 30 September. 

Let's celebrate as many of our favourite dive centres, resorts, liveaboards and destinations as we can!
