July Warm Water Diving Suggestions Wanted!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am currently looking for opinions on where to go this July for some warm water diving!

 

I am based in the UK, so am considering places between the Indian Ocean and Caribbean, places like Indonesia/Australia are a little too far in the time I have. The Red Sea is superb, although I go every April, so I'm looking for somewhere different.

 

The places that are currently on the shortlist are:

 

1. Cozumel

2. Cayman Islands

3. Bonaire

4. Maldives

 

I am mostly interested in good photographic opportunities (especially wide angle), and good coral and fish life for nice diving, rather than wrecks.

 

If anyone has any thoughts on these places, or has any other suggestions then I would be delighted to hear!!

 

Thanks!!

I have never been to the Maldives, but I have heard that they are great. With respect to your Caribbean destinations, I would rank Little Cayman first. The Bloody Bay Wall on the north side of the island has the best Caribbean diving I have seen. I would rank Cozumel and the east end of Grand Cayman slightly below that. All of these areas have healthy reefs, wonderful topography, and great wide angle photo opportunities.

July is a great time for whale sharks near cozumel.

Bonaire is excellent and so accessible. You will feel like you are on a live aboard. but is more mixed shooting. wide angle and macro

no comment on little or grand cayman

I agree that Bonaire diving is very good. I definitely rank Little Cayman as better (my opinion, obviously). The wall and the topography are really special.

I live in the Cayman Islands and am biased :) but I doubt you will be disappointed if you come out here. Definately Little Cayman is top noth and Bloody Bay Wall fantastic. Diving on Grand Cayman and Cayman Brac is great, you can choose a mix of shore and boat dives, wall or shallow dives, coral or wreak dives etc. It all depends on what you like to see.By the way hopefully the silversides will be in town in July and they are not to be missed.

 

I am happy to supply more information on the options that exist if you want it

The Maldives would be my choice, sounds exactly what you have asked for…. Mantas,lots of reefs/fish possible whaleshark, what more can you ask??

Are you looking for live aboard or resort?
