Scores on the Doors One Month Into the 2021 DIVE Travel Awards

dive travel awards 2021 title

Just one month into the 2021 DIVE Travel Awards, and despite the current world travel situation, the scuba diving community has proved yet again that it is immensley strong, with 31 destinations, 148 dive centres and resorts and 80 liveaboards already submitted to the Awards by DIVE's readers.

No surprises in the destinations category as Indonesia once more rockets straight into the lead, and the last year's front runners in the dive centres, resorts and liveaboards categories are leading the way, but it's nice to welcome some new faces to this years awards.

This list is accurate as of Friday, 18 June 2021, but please get in touch if you feel that your nominations are not represented here. We've done our best to match dive centres to locations but there are some names that are popular in a number of different countries, so if we've picked the wrong one, please let us know. 

We are champing at the bit (chomping on the regulator!?) to be let out of here so thank you to everybody who has participated so far, and thanks for leaving some lovely messages. We've been a bit busy putting together our Summer print issue but we'll round up the best of them in a seperate post in the coming weeks.

There's plenty of time to go, so just add your votes using the entry form below and we'll put out another update next month.

Voting in the 2021 DIVE Travel Awards has now closed. Stay tuned for the announcement of the winners later in November.
