Getting Romantic: Dive Destinations for Lovers


It might be hard to believe, but Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. What’s great about our favorite places is that they come pre-equipped with a natural charm, as most of them are on the water. What better way to please your lover than to surprise them with the ultimate romantic getaway of their dreams while also getting a chance to share in a scuba holiday?

If you haven’t planned yet, fear not Cupid, we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves. Give the gift of diving.

The Virgin Islands

Why not sweep your lover off their feet by taking them to one of the most classic of getaways down in the Virgin Islands? Known as much for their charm as for their superb aquatic attractions, this is the ultimate place to get in the mood.


Okay, so we enjoy the Caribbean quite a lot, but that means you will too. After all, we’re kind of experts. But, if you don’t trust us, why not a spot so lovely that the Beach Boys wrote a song about it? Now that the song is in your head, click the link above the pic and get exploring.

Bright sunny days on the beaches, and all the nightlife you could possibly dream of. This place can be whatever you make of it. If you’re into some drinks in the shade, staying out all night, or getting a good night’s sleep and getting in the water early, Phuket is a great choice.

The Canary Islands

The weather may not be the best, but it’s better than a lot of Europe, and in the off-season you’ll pretty much feel like you’re on your own private island. Head to the canary islands to get a true sense of escape without watching the funds escape from your bank account.

Another great place to hit up in the offseason, Cyclades is a beautiful area of Greece that appears as if it’s slipped out of a dream. Easy to get to from all around Europe, this destination is a surefire place to get going on great food, relaxing nights, and wonderful diving away from winter weather.
