Does your family love to go on adventures together? Do you all love it when your heart starts racing from the thrill of an activity? Well, if you answered yes to both those questions, you may want to head out on a scuba diving adventure! Your family can go on vacation and visit some of the best scuba diving places in the world. All you need to do is become certified to dive either before or during your family trip to enjoy this activity. And if you are already certified, you are that much closer to seeing the best scuba diving places in the world!
A little time in the Caribbean is exactly what the doctor ordered for rest and relaxation. However, I love sending families down there for all the scuba diving action. The Cayman Islands are surrounded by accessible wrecks that are mostly near the shoreline. This is excellent news if you want to tackle multiple dive sites during your family trip.
A couple of the favorite shipwrecks near the Caymans include the USS Kittiwake and the Cayman Aggressor IV.
There are many other tropical destinations for family vacations that you can consider if you don’t want to visit the Cayman Islands.
If you have never heard of Micronesia, it is an area in Oceania. There are more than two thousand islands within this destination. The largest of all the islands is Guam.
Now that you know where Micronesia is located, it is time to focus on scuba diving in the Chuuk Lagoon. The water in this lagoon is full of ships that were wrecked during World War II. The tragedy is everywhere in these waters, and you will feel it as you explore with your family.
Take the time to look at all the marine life as it swims around the Japanese wrecks of the San Francisco Maru and Shinkoku Maru.
Everyone knows that scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef in Australia is incredible. However, if you are searching for something even better for your next family vacation, I recommend heading to Heron Island. This island is near a remote section of the Great Barrier Reef. You can only reach this island via boat or helicopter.
Once you arrive on Heron Island, you will be happy to know there are more than twenty dive sites nearby. All those dive sites are perfect for sea turtle, shark, and humpback whale sightings.
Beauty is everywhere in Fiji. Since there is so much to see on land, many people forget about entering the water for scuba diving here. Don’t make that same mistake on your next family trip.
Go into the water to dive and see some of the most incredible marine life surrounding the coral reefs. If you really want to take your family adventure to the next level, head out on one of the shark dives. Don’t worry; everyone comes back in one piece!
Some of the best scuba diving in the world can be done in French Polynesia. A vacation on the Tuamotu Archipelago ensures you will spot gray reef sharks, wild dolphins, and manta rays. You simply need to find the best scuba diving locations. This is easy to do when you head out with a guide.
Bali is the most visited destination in Indonesia, but I urge you to put the Raja Ampat Islands on your list for your next family vacation. These islands are in a remote area, which makes the dive sites untouched and perfect. This is one of the best scuba diving places in the world for peace and quiet.
There are numerous atolls to dive into when you vacation in the Maldives. I could list them all for you, but how about starting with Ari Atoll, Baa Atoll, and North Male Atoll? Add in Hanifaru Bay, and you will do some of the best scuba diving of your life while on vacation here. Just keep an eye out for the reef sharks and whale sharks when you are underwater.
Darwin’s Arch may longer be standing, but that doesn’t mean you should skip the Galapagos Islands for your next scuba diving trip. There is still so much to see near these islands, despite the cold water. Check out different diving sites so you have ample opportunities to see penguins, Galapagos sharks, marine iguanas, and so much more.
The water is always crystal clear around the islands in the Bahamas. Usually, the most difficult part of planning a family scuba diving trip here is deciding where you want to go diving. And spend the rest of your time out of the water.
I recommend considering Tiger Beach on Grand Bahama or heading out to the reefs in the Exumas.
You don’t need to leave the country to find one of the best scuba diving places in the world. The only coral barrier reef in North America can be found in the Florida Keys. You can easily scuba dive anywhere near this reef.
However, if you want an even better scuba diving experience, head over to the Florida Keys Wreck Trek. This area contains nine different shipwrecks. The Vandenberg, Spiegel Grove, and Eagle are the most popular.
These are the best scuba diving places in the world, and each one will offer you something unique during your family vacation. Only you know which one of these scuba diving destinations will check off all the boxes for your family. I know one of them will, though, and it will soon be time to head out and make a few memories together.
