2021 DIVE Travel Awards - Second Month Update

dive travel awards 2021 title

Two months into the DIVE Travel Awards, and while world governments chop, change and dither over their travel regulations, the nominations for best scuba diving destination, dive centre/resort and liveaboard keep flooding in...

As of 14 July, two months into the 2021 DIVE Travel Awards, 55 destinations, 250 dive centres and resorts and 120 liveaboards have been nominated so far. There have been a few changes at the tops of the tables and a couple of new faces, but it's still early days and there's another four months to get your vote in!

This list is accurate as of Thurdsay, 15 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.

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