Dive Worldwide

DIVE WWThe Dive Worldwide special offer of £100 per person saving on all their liveaboard trips is available on over 70 awesome liveaboard adventures – the widest range available through a UK tour operator. From the Maldives, Truk Lagoon and Palau to Raja Ampat, Komodo and The Galapagos, the choice is vast. But hurry, the trip must be booked before 31st March 2016 to qualify for the saving.

For those looking for a totally new adventure, head to Sri Lanka later this year and step aboard the first liveaboard to operate there. The Sri Lanka Aggressor launches in September 2016 offering three unique 7-night itineraries encompassing a mix of whales, dolphins, wrecks and reefs. There are trips focused on snorkelling with whales and dolphins; recreational diving trips combining wreck diving and drift dives; and technical wreck weeks which look at the world-class wrecks there.

With a rich culture and great natural beauty, Sri Lanka captures the best of all worlds. The underwater focus is primarily on the 200+ wrecks found around the island. In addition, wildlife enthusiasts can expect to encounter several species of whale and dolphin in its rich waters, and recreational diving weeks offer the best of everything.

Built for power, comfort and stability, the purpose-built Sri Lanka Aggressor is spacious at 44 metres in length and cruises at 10-12 knots. She features 13 spacious air-conditioned staterooms for up to 26 passengers, a partially covered sun deck, lounge, wet-bar, BBQ grill area and swim deck. The boat is accompanied by two skiffs, from which some dives and all snorkelling activities operate.

The inaugural whale and dolphin snorkelling trip begins from Trincomalee on the east coast and offers guests the opportunity to encounter up to 13 species of whale and 8 species of dolphin in the water. World renowned naturalist Howard Martenstyn will be on board offering expert advice and information on behaviour patterns. Expect blue, sperm, humpback, beaked, melon head, pilot and false killer whales.

The recreational diving trips depart from Colombo and time is split between exploring local wrecks and enjoying drift dives along the lush coral reefs, teeming with marine life. The wreck dives include the Thermopylae Sierra, Chief Dragon, Taprobane and Trug (Nilgiri) all of which have their own history, can be easily dived and are home to a prolific array of marine life.

On Tech wreck weeks, wreck enthusiasts will enjoy a week of discovery and exploration on world-class wrecks such as the HMS Hermes, the first ever British built aircraft carrier, now lying at a depth of 54 metres off the Batticaloa coast on the eastern side of Sri Lanka. These are technical diving weeks and the boat is fully equipped for trimix and rebreather diving.

Price: from £2,585pp (saving £100pp) sharing, including 7 nights’ full board liveaboard accommodation on the Sri Lanka Aggressor, international flights, transfers and diving with Dive Worldwide.

WIN one of the NEW Momentum M20 Dive Watches!!!

Published

on

For this week’s competition, we’ve teamed up with our good friends at Nautilus Diving to give away one of Momentum’s new M20 Dive Watches as a prize!

Leading watch brand Momentum has introduced the new M20 series of watches. The new collection includes the M20 DSS Diver with a classic black dial, or striking Bahama yellow dial, and the M20 GMT Diver in a black & blue “Batman” version.

The M20 Dive watch features a solid 316L stainless steel case that is beautifully rounded and polished, taking its design cues from our original 1990’s Aquamatic model. The case is just under 42mm in diameter, but the smooth curves make it feel much smaller. Style, performance and unmatched comfort on the wrist.

The M20’s elegant yet durable design allows it to be worn in almost any situation. It has a 200M depth rating along with an off-set screw-down crown for added comfort.

The M20’s are also very legible, with its double-dome sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating there is virtually no glare. At night, the SuperLuminova luminous dial and hands come to life, a vital feature for serious divers where light may not reach certain depths.

To be in with a chance of winning this awesome prize, all you have to do is answer the following question:

In a recent post on Scubaverse.com (which you can find here), we reported that the Women Divers Hall of Fame have announced the selection of how many new members who will constitute the Class of 2021?

Is it:

  • A) five
  • B) six
  • C) seven
