Let us inspire you

We create excellent holidays that are also very good value for money. Often a holiday starts with just a concept. We can make that concept a reality. It’s what we do, day in, day out. Our experts always seek to make your holiday personal to you.

We have travelled extensively across the many destinations we offer. This gives us a unique opportunity to fulfil a important role in your goal to dive in the most amazing places. Considering finer points like how many divers per group there are and which dive centre is best for which dive sites, the time of year to visit. It may be off season and a bit rainy but if this leads to run off and poor visibility does this matter, for some it does.

We are here to go that extra mile to ensure you can spend your money wisely and get the upmost enjoyment from your trip. We would rather be honest than send you on a trip you wont enjoy. Its not part of our philosophy. We may also advise on diver experience as some liveaboards and destinations are for the more experienced diver or someone seeks the thrills of fast drifts and washing machine currents. Others want a relaxed resort with a house reef with great fish life. We Can get to the place that’s right for you quickly and easily. Read more about us and our experts on their bio pages. Take a look at some of our popular itineraries below to give you an idea of what is possible.
