While parts of the world are still on restriction due to Covid-19, many other parts have implemented strict protocols to keep you safe and are pushing ahead with limited tourism. This is especially great news for divers who want to get away from it all and experience the luxury of liveaboard diving. Some of the world’s most exquisite liveaboard dive destinations are now open for tourism again at some of the best prices you’ll ever see. Destinations like the Maldives, Galapagos, Seychelles, Australia, Thailand, Mexico, Egypt, and the Philippines are offering incredible prices for liveaboards as soon as December 2020.
In my opinion, one of the best things about liveaboard diving is the seclusion. Besides the peace and tranquility of submersion, the liveaboards themselves rarely carry more than 15 divers. Your whole liveaboard experience is customized, personable, and intimate, as opposed to being subjected to crowds of tourists and long lines of 2-meter separation waiting to enter an attraction.
My other favorite draw for liveaboards is the luxury. Even those liveaboard dive trips that aren’t hailed as the ultimate in luxury, provide amenities that far outweigh most land-based operations. And the crews are so caring and thoughtful to your every need they make you feel pampered.
Of course, one of the most important parts of liveaboard diving versus land-based boat or shore diving operations, is the ability to visit sites that are not normally available without a long boat ride. While you sleep, the liveaboard travels to the site so you can wake up and dive, dive, dive. It is the definition of maximum underwater time with valet conveniences.
I’m not just trying to get you to go, I’m longing for some bottom time as well. So, let’s take a look at some of the amazing deals that are available to destinations that are ready and waiting for you and I to enjoy.
