Why you should book a liveaboard dive holiday

Diving is one of life’s great pleasures. If you’ve been on a scuba holiday, then you already know how incredible it can be to explore the underwater world. It’s even more exciting when you get to dive in some of the world’s most exotic and beautiful places such as the Maldives, Egypt, Oman or the Caribbean. Diving holidays give you the chance to make multiple dives each day, to build skills and confidence, all while enjoying the other benefits of a relaxing break. But if you really want to focus more on your diving, to spend more time in the water and visit more dive sites, then a liveaboard is the way to go.

Here are five reasons why your next scuba diving holiday should be on a liveaboard:

1. All-inclusive dive accommodation

On a liveaboard holiday everything is taken care of as part of the same package. Here at Planet Dive, we hand-pick all our liveaboard options around the world, ensuring you get the
same high standards in Sudan as in Belize. And, just because you’re on a boat, you won’t miss out on any of the luxuries you can find at land-based resorts. The best liveaboards feature air-conditioning, well-appointed suites, sun decks, luxury lounges and more. Almost everything is included in the price, so you don’t have to worry about carrying cash or paying for dinner and dives.


2. A hassle-free dive holiday

Once on board, you can forget about all your worries, as liveaboards promise hassle-free experiences. Expect top class service from professional staff who cater to your every need.
All vessels are fully certified and safety checked. All that’s left for you to do is kick back, relax and enjoy the diving. You also don’t have to worry about what time you need to go diving or where the best spot is according to the day’s weather conditions as the team onboard will plan that all for you.


3. Remote diving locations

One of the main drawbacks of resort-based diving holidays is that you’re limited as to how far you can travel to dive sites every day. Which often means you have to share your underwater paradise with several other dive groups. On a diving liveaboard, there are no such restrictions. You can sail out to remote reefs, wreck sites and points of interest where you can have the underwater world to yourself. And with much of the travelling done at night, you can really maximise your diving time.


4. Make friends

Perhaps the best part of a liveaboard is that you get to do this with a small band of like-minded people. You’ll really get to know your fellow divers over the course of the week, swapping stories and photos, sharing tips and making new friends over a mutual passion. 


5. The world’s best diving

Wake up every day in a brand new place and explore up to 24 different sites on the same trip. The liveaboard experience is all about the diving. Multiple excursions every day with
some of the world’s best sites literally on your doorstep. If you’re looking to take your diving to the next level, then your next trip really should be on a liveaboard.
