Filled with compelling stories, expert advice, and stunning National Geographic photography, this comprehensive guide features extraordinary destinations for divers who like to travel, divers traveling with non-diving companions, and travelers who are passionate about the ocean. 

Dive travel experts Carrie Miller and Chris Taylor traveled to 50 inspirational locations around the world spending more than 250 hours underwater to bring you this one-of-a-kind guidebook. 

In these rich and inviting pages, you will find travel stories and practical tips to make the most of your next adventure.

  • Marvel at manta rays and dragons in Komodo;
  • Explore the hiking and diving paradise of Saba in the Caribbean;
  • Dive in with white sharks and whale sharks in Australia;
  • Discover shipwrecks and sand dunes in North Carolina’s Outer Banks;
  • Learn martial arts and shore-dive in Okinawa, Japan;
  • Linger in the land and sea gardens of Bormes-les-Mimosas, France;
  • Road-trip around the marine reserves and coastal towns of New Zealand’s North Island;
  • And so much more! 

There is a purpose to these extraordinary travel experiences: conservation through exploration. To that end, each location highlights a global issue from the necessity of protecting remarkable ecosystems like coral reefs and mangroves, to sea turtle and shark conservation and suggests ways you can learn more and get involved. 

Whether you’re dreaming of your next dive holiday or looking to travel the world a little differently, this guide will inspire you to get out and explore above and beneath the surface!

Chris Taylor

Having wanted to be a pilot for as long as he can remember, Chris Taylor gained his private pilot's licence at the age of 17. He joined the Royal Navy whilst studying for a degree in Electrical Engineering and, after serving as a Navigation Officer on numerous ships, went onto to operate Wasp and Lynx helicopters.

After five years instructing, he became a Test Pilot and flew all manner of experimental aircraft for research and development purposes before returning to the Empire Test Pilot's School as a Tutor. Having served at Boscombe Down for ten years he joined the UK Civil Aviation Authority as an aeroplane and rotorcraft test pilot.

With the closure of the CAA's Flight Test Department, he formed Dovetail Aviation Ltd and has continued to test fly a wide variety of aircraft ever since. Chris has flown 400 different kinds of aircraft, is a Fellow of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots and is a licensed Category 1 Test Pilot and Flight Test Instructor for both aeroplanes and helicopters, which arguably makes him one of the best qualified and most widely experienced test pilots working today.
