21 Itineraries for 2021

Published

on

Blue O Two and their friends at WWDAS have announced their second instalment of the 21 Itineraries campaign.  It celebrates their wonderful staff contributions and highlights some of their favourite SCUBA diving liveaboard itineraries.

With many of them having an in-depth knowledge of the destinations, liveaboards and itineraries, who better to ask than the staff themselves? Some have extensive SCUBA diving experience, and others are beginners.  This helps to give every diver out there an idea of which SCUBA diving experience would best suit them.

A top destination for many, Egypt is definitely one of the favourites.  This time they focus on the Deep South itinerary, which ticks all the boxes for any diver wanting to cave dive, see thriving reefs and corals, enjoy breath-taking drop-offs, shark sightings and a vast array of marine life.

Second on their staff’s SCUBA diving bucket-list this month is the Central Atolls itinerary in the Maldives.  This 7 night SCUBA diving adventure delights with an abundance of marine life, coral gardens and drift diving.  Not only is this the perfect destination for underwater photographers but you can also book yourself onto one of their PADI courses too.
