Yes there are liveaboards with underwater scooters in the Red Sea and Truk Lagoon. These include the Red Sea Tala liveaboard, the Red Sea Nouran liveaboard and the Truk Master Truk Lagoon. Underwater sea scooters make for longer dives as you save energy and use less air on your dive.
There are great white sharks in the Caribbean and it’s thought they come to breed in the warm safe waters of the Gulf of Mexico. But the scientists are still researching why the largest predators of the oceans visit the Caribbean when they normally prefer cooler waters.
Tiger shark Tarantino at Tiger Beach in the Bahamas likes to be petted like a dog by shark conservationist Jim Abernethy. But not all tiger sharks like to be petted, so don’t rush out and start petting them yourself.
After scuba diving with a bikini under a wetsuit you’re best to wear thin non-water absorbing board shorts or synthetic shorts like the Patagonia Micro Planning shorts. Combine this with a similar fabric t-shirt and you’re good to go. Even better is to wear a waterproof neoprene bikini or swimsuit that doesn’t get wet!
The Forgotten Islands, which are also known as the Southeast Moluccas (Maluku Tenggara), are a part of Indonesia. These islands are made up of a 1,000 kilometre (625 mile) long chain of archipelagos which stretch from Flores or Timor across to West Papua on the island of New Guinea. The best and only way to dive the Forgotten Islands is by liveaboard dive boat, which will take you to this very remote and isolated chain of islands. The best time to scuba dive the Forgotten Islands is in the dry season, which is from June until November. See below for the best liveaboards for dive trips to the Forgotten Islands.
Scuba diving Antarctica is about the pristine clear waters and about enjoying one of the richest bio-diverse ecosystems on the planet. But whilst the answer is yes you can scuba dive Antarctica, it’s not for beginners. To dive Antarctica you will need prior experience of cold-water diving and of diving using a dry suit. Plus I recommend a minimum of 30 dives including those in cold water.
