  • Diving in the Red SeaDiving in the Red Sea
    Red Sea Diving Holiday Review Sharm El Sheikh Egypt October 2019 Let me say up front that if you have found this page by searching for diving holidays in the Red Sea look no further.  We had the most fantastic holiday with Aquarius Red Sea Diving Club.  See the underwater photography Experienced divers might want to skip the next bit and go straight to Cheap Diving Holidays Because of health issues I was very wary of taking a course on holiday.  I’d come close a few times but the idea of 6 or 8 people all being trained at once plus a potential language barrier really bothered me.  What would happen if the instructor was dealing with some-one else in difficulty when I had ...
  • Diving in the UKDiving in the UK
    UK Diving Clubs Featured Diving Club – Ashby Castle Sub Aqua Club A membership of about 20 people enjoy continued safe diver training as well as numerous diving expeditions and the social events. Several of Ashby Castle Sub Aqua Club members on 2018 Red Sea Trip. Visit their Diving Gallery for more pictures. If you don’t have basic skills you might like to consider a residential swimming course in the UK first. One of the things that worried me most was the tendency of most holiday dive centres to tout for business with a 5 minute swim in the resort pool and follow up bookings with VERY short pool sessions and then straight into the sea.  WOW – if that isn’t enough to frighten of ...

As soon as you hear the word “diving” you think of all sorts of different diving activities.  Diving as we mean it here in the phrase Diving Holidays simply means swimming time underwater. There are quite a few types of diving holiday. The most common forms of diving are snorkelling (also called free diving) and SCUBA diving.

SCUBA short  for Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus is a system first developed by Jacques Cousteau in which high-pressure air is stored in tanks and reduced to a breathable pressure.

Since then the diving world has moved on and holidays specifically for diving or holidays in which diving plays a small or large part can now be found all over the world.

Here you will find my diving reviews of various holidays as I learn to dive and then enjoy my new diving skills on holidays all over the world. Starting with Diving in the Red Sea along with my husband we hope to dive next in Goa see Diving in Goa and with a bit of luck early next year we should have a page on Diving in the Dominican Republic.
