Top 10 Destinations To Scuba Dive

Whether you're a scuba pro or looking for the perfect spot to take your first dive, check out this PADI vetted travel guide for where to go.

The Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

The Galapagos Islands have ignited the imagination since the days of Darwin. The Darwin Foundation has preserved these nutrient rich islands from getting wrecked by tourism, protecting the many whale sharks, hammerheads, dolphins, and seals that the islands attract. Legendary hammerhead and whale shark encounters most often take place off of the islands Wolf and Darwin. Since landing is not permitted on these islands, liveaboards are the only way to tap such awesome experiences. Only a limited number of liveaboard permits are granted, so if you’re craving some one-on-one time during whale shark migration season (May to October), be sure to book well in advance!
