Final Update Before Voting Closes in the 2020 DIVE Travel Awards

dta 2020 travel awards twitter DWW

And here it is – the final update before voting ends in our 2020 DIVE Travel Awards. As with previous years, after nearly 6 months of nominations and voting, the last few days could make all the difference.

There have been some changes since the last update on 16 October – some big changes – especially at the top of the dive centre/resorts and liveaboards categories. Scuba Junkie has reclaimed its spot at the top of the leaderboard in the Best Dive Centre or Resort category, and Blue Corner has entered the Top 3 for the first time in this year's awards, while Fiji's Volivoli Beach Resort and Ra Divers maintains its third position. 

In the liveaboards category, Egypt's Emperor Elite has taken the top spot from Indonesia's Wunderpus, the first time an Egyptian/Red Sea liveaboard has placed first on the leaderboard since the awards began. 2018 winner Dewi Nusantara holds on to the third place it has occupied since September.

In the destinations category, Indonesia, as expected, is well out in front and Egypt maintains a good – but not completely secure – second place. As for third – the Philippines has been there for some time now, but a good push by any of the chasing destinations could see that change.

The Top 10 winners in each category will be announced on Friday, 13 November. Sign up to our newsletter using the link below to make sure you don't miss out!

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 operator 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!
