DIVE's 2021 Travel Awards - Supporting the Dive Industry Worldwide
The DIVE Travel Awards begins again! We might not be able to travel right now, but we are not giving up on the scuba diving world. To reflect that, this year, we're going to do things a bit differently.
Instead of the usual two-part DIVE Travel Awards in which a round of nominations sees the top 25 scuba diving destinations, liveaboards, and dive centres or resorts go through to a final vote, we're just going to go with a single voting system, where every one of your scuba diving favourites will be honoured with a place on what will almost certainly be a very long leaderboard.
We want you to show your support for the diving world by telling us which places you miss the most dearly – the dive spots with the clearest waters or the biggest fish or the tastiest street cafés; the dive centres with the sharpest-eyed, considerate, professional and entertaining guides; the liveaboards with the best crew, best dinner service and the coldest post-dive refrigerator. The places you can't wait to return to – or those with whom you still hold reservations, doing your best to keep the dive business buoyant until we can travel the world once more.
The ten destinations, liveaboards, dive centres or resorts that accumulate the most votes will still be recognised as the best in their respective categories, and the first three in each group will still win the coveted top places. This year, we'll also be able to tally up some regional breakdowns: Top Ten Egyptian Dive Centres or Top Ten Maldives Liveaboards, for example.
The rules are simple - you can name up to three in each category – or none at all, if that's the case – and you can also add a few words for your top choices in each category; we'll try to publish as many of the nicest ones as possible.
Once you press submit, you will be sent an e-mail asking you to confirm your nomination. Doing so will also subscribe you to our weekly newsletter – it's free, we won't sell your details to anybody else, and all the regular updates to the travel awards will be sent out with it - but you can unsubscribe any time you like, without penalty, if you wish, no worries.
The vote will close on 31 October.
