We are unique to the UK dive market in offering remote and far-flung destinations with liveaboards, resorts, and dive centres the world over. At Dive Worldwide we really do have the Ultimate Diving Collection. Asia, the Americas or the islands of the South Pacific are high up our list and each of us at Dive has our favourites which we would be delighted to talk you through.
Our friendly and highly professional team of dive enthusiasts will help you create the itinerary of a lifetime. Whether you are looking for a small group departure or a tailor-made holiday, we will provide you with an unforgettable dive experience.
The vision for Dive Worldwide has always been to offer new and exciting destinations that were not readily available to the UK diver. I believe we have done this, and we are now able to offer more variety to more destinations across the globe than any other dive operator. This does not mean we are complacent; it is also a very good reason to get out of the office and in the water!
We have been lucky enough to visit plenty of world-class diving destinations over the last year. We've been working hard to not only keep your favourite destinations at affordable prices, but introduce new regions of the world a little closer to home, thus increasing the choices of holidays available to you. Our new European collection includes the opportunity of encounters with large pelagic species in the Azores, long weekends in the south of France and technical diving on the wrecks of Malta.
We are very excited about our new trips to Japan, island hopping around the Galapagos and pioneering liveaboard trips to Timor Leste. We have introduced more land-based and liveaboard options in the Maldives and a volunteer programme in Australia. Keep a look out for group trips led by experts, such as the Classic Wrecks of Malta, as well as unique diving opportunities and liveaboard itineraries with large pelagic encounters. For the photographers amongst you, our collection offers you a dynamic choice of destinations to choose your subject and there's also the opportunity to sign up to one of a number of workshops in amazing destinations like the Maldives or Indonesia.
Keeping up to date with Dive Worldwide is getting easier. You can follow us on Twitter, subscribe to our Blog and like us on Facebook. We love to let you know what's going on and for you to share your holiday experiences with each other. Keep in touch.
Finally, thank you for all of those who have travelled with us for your fantastic feedback and messages, photos and suggestions. It really is an inspiration to us. We very much look forward to helping you choose and organise your next diving holiday and will do our best to make that extra bit special.

Charlie Munns - Sales Consultant
Charlie learned to dive off Australia's Great Barrier Reef in 1991 and instantly found it was love at first sight. In 2002, he left the UK and a career in e-Commerce and e-Learning and headed to Thailand to re-train as an Instructor, initially believing this would last for 6 months. Eight years and more than 4000 dives later, Charlie returned to the UK to work in the dive travel industry and encourages others to fulfil their passion for the aquatic realm.
Charlie has lived and worked throughout the world. 18 months in Thailand, one year on Aruba, 6 months sailing the West Indies, one year in St. Kitts and more recently, two and a half years aboard the Odyssey liveaboard in Chuuk Lagoon. He has dived in the UK, Australia, Red Sea, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, USA, Palau and Yap.
A trained technical diver, Charlie is more than happy to play around on a shallow Caribbean reef or guide others through the bowels of a Japanese war time wreck in Chuuk and has spent many hours decompressing with the fishes. Charlie is a published writer, photographer and even an underwater model!
Michele Coral - Sales Consultant
Michele jumped off the top board of a swimming pool in Bournemouth, when she was 18 months old because her 10 year old sister did and has been a water baby ever since. Learning to dive in the freezing cold water off Plymouth in March 1990 didn't put her off and she has not had a non diving holiday in 20 years. She hopes to visit the Galapagos, the Malpelo Islands and the whole of Asia. Anyone want to come with? After becoming an instructor and working in Turkey, the Red Sea and South Africa, Michele came home to London and managed a highly successful 5* PADI IDC centre for 8 years, diving and instructing extensively in the UK. Michele now wants to be able to send people to every corner of the globe to see the magic that lies under the sea and beyond.
