Scuba Diving » Travel Reports


One of our biggest hobbies on our travels is snorkeling and diving, besides photography. Especially on our trip around the world we have been able to experience some of the most beautiful snorkeling and diving spots in the world like the Galapagos Islands, St. Kitts, Hawaii, Fiji, Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, Bali, Cancun, Zanzibar and of course the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. But also beyond our world trip we always try to include diving in our holidays and have been here already in the Komodo National Park in Indonesia, the Philippines, the Ningaloo Reef and of course several times at the Red Sea in Egypt. Meanwhile we have recorded 130 dives in our logbook.

Robinson Club Maldives – Deep & Breeze Diving (Maldives)

Categories: Travel reports, Asia, Maldives

When we first arrived in the Maldives at Veligandu Island Resort in 2012, we didn’t have a diving license.

On today’s diving day, when we already had two dives in the southern lagoon, we went back to the diving school of Fish ‘n Fins.

We didn’t want to miss that. On Aruba we already had the opportunity to see a plane underwater and were …

Barbados – Wreck diving in Carlisle Bay Marine Park (Barbados)

Categories: Travel reports, Central America & the Caribbean, Barbados

Today we set off at the bridgetown cruise terminal in Barbados at around 6.30am. With us there were three other ships in the port: the TUI Discovery, a ship of the Costa shipping company and the Christina O., originally a ship of the rich shipping family Onassis. Our captain told us in his morning address (usually around 8 o’clock) that Christina O. is now a charter yacht and can be rented for up to 450,000 € PER WEEK. So if …

Molinere Bay – Diving at the Underwater Sculpture Park (Grenada)

Categories: Travel reports, Central America & the Caribbean, Grenada

After the two dives at Boss Reef this morning, our dive trip with the AIDA would have ended. But since we originally thought when booking the trip that we would go diving this morning at the famous underwater sculpture park of Jason de Caires Taylor, the AIDA crew had a great suggestion for both of us: in the afternoon we should make a trip with snorkelers and taster divers to the underwater sculpture park and they asked us if we …
