Liveaboard diving holidays

There are many advantages of liveaboard diving holidays. Many liveaboards provide the opportunity to dive remote and often inaccessible areas of the world. They are ideal for maximising the number of dives you experience and are a preferred option for lone travellers.

{img_alt} In contrast to resort diving, most liveaboards offer four to five dives a day with minimal waits between dives. With all the facilities close to hand, liveaboards save packing and unpacking heavy gear bags too. Bidodiversity trips offer excellent opportunities for extended trips as boats move from one region to the other between seasons and if you're looking to get on board with an expert, most fleets offer special trips with experts on board; whether it's photography or wildlife driven.
