UK-based tour operator Scuba Travel has some really, really good last minute deals on offer right now – and when we say last minute, we mean you’d better go pack now!!!

It would be totally worth dropping everything though – just check out these crazy dive holiday offers:

Philippines / Malapascua / Exotic Island Dive Resort / 17th February / Only £1,345

Save £250. Only £1345 including Cathay Pacific flights via Hong Kong. 7 nights half board staying in a deluxe room at the Exotic Resort, a small charming resort with a high standard of service. Package includes 10 dives with the resort’s 5* dive PADI centre.

Malapascua is a tiny island in the Philippines with a big reputation that is all too well deserved, with endless white beaches and lush tropical groves. A diving holiday in Malapascua mixes up big fish sightings with macro and muck diving against a backdrop of flourishing soft corals. The star of the show are the thresher sharks. Normally shy and elusive, the Exotic Resort has a proven track record for getting you closer and witnessing behaviours seldom seen before! Hammerheads and manta can also be seen. When you are not looking for the big fish, spend an hour or two on one of the many gorgeous reef dives.

The BiG Scuba Podcast… with Stephan Whelan

Published

on

Next in a new series of podcasts shared by our friends Gemma and Ian aka The BiG Scuba Podcast…

Ian and Gemma chat to Stephan Whelan.  Stephan is the Founder and Publisher of DeeperBlue.com. His passion for the underwater world started at 8 years-old with a try-dive in a hotel pool on holiday that soon formulated into a lifelong love affair with the oceans and led him to become one of the leading figures in the diving media industry.

Stephan got bitten by the diving bug early in life. His first scuba experience was a try-dive when he was eight years old on a family holiday in Europe, and from that moment, he was addicted. He learned to dive properly with BSAC (British Sub Aqua Club) as soon as he could at school and then did his BSAC Assistant Instructor when he turned 16. By the time he was heading to university in 1996, he was hooked on teaching and diving as much as he could.

By the time he started studying at university, he decided to have a go at flexing his web-design skills by publishing some of the stories he had built up about various ‘challenging’ students and dives he had encountered, and so deeperblue.net (as it was known then) was created. He published numerous personal stories until 1998 when other writers began enquiring about contributing to the site with their tales, and it was at this moment he decided to make it more like a magazine format and began asking for volunteer helpers. He got a couple of editors on board, and plenty of writers began contributing.

DeeperBlue.com (or DB as it’s become to be known) is now one of the most-popular diving websites in the world and has grown to publish over 9,000 articles covering all sorts of topics like Freediving, Scuba Diving, Ocean Advocacy, and Diving Travel all the while keeping over half-a-million passionate divers from the diving community connected every month through the forums, large social media following, mobile app, and recently launched podcast.
