Most dive organizers here do morning trips that cover one wreck and one reef, allowing you to spy colorful fish, eels and stingray in between. Boat rides to dive sites tend to top out at 30 minutes. Some organizers, such as Dive Bermuda (on Fairmont Southampton’s beach), will do night dives if you have four or more people.
Cancun is home to the globe’s second-largest barrier reef and offers fantastic scuba diving. You’ll see stingrays, moray eels, angelfish, turtles and dolphins in stunning Caribbean waters. In addition, Museo Subacuático de Arte’s 400 lichen-covered underwater statues (including cars, dogs and people) are especially photogenic.
Queensland, AustraliaA roundup like this would be incomplete without the Great Barrier Reef. Off the coast of Queensland, this is the longest living thing on earth. 
Earn your open water certification in Carmel at Point Lobos State Natural Reserve. Because the park allows just 15 groups to dive each day, the reefs and aquatic life are protected. As you float through kelp fronds, look for crabs, snails, lingcod and bright nudibranch alongside colorful schools of fish.
Mombasa, KenyaThe Indian Ocean is warm year-round, which makes diving off the coast of Mombasa a treat. One great place to go for an underwater outing is off Watamu, 65 miles north of the city.
Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar Made up of 800 islands in the Andaman Sea, the Mergui Archipelago is a favorite of especially intrepid divers. When you want to feel like you have an entire ocean to yourself and have an urge to explore fairly uncharted territory, this is the place to come.
Tulamben, Bali
There are great dive spots all over Bali, but what makes the fishing village of Tulamben popular is its shipwreck. During World War II, U.S. Army transport ship Liberty was sunk by a Japanese torpedo. You can reach the wreck by swimming, seeing as how its highest point is just 16 feet from the ocean’s surface.
Riviera Maya & CancunOnce a collection of small fishing villages, this portion of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, starting at Cancun and stretching south, has evolved into one of the most popular and dynamic tourist destinations on the western Caribbean Sea. It offers the perfect mix of dive opportunities, cultural experiences, shopping and adventure. It’s enough to satisfy the most hardcore scuba diver and landlubber alike. For cave divers, this region is legendary, but everyone can explore some of the lightbeam-filled caverns in Riviera Maya. 
Where to Stay Kin-Há Hotels are a pair of rustic ecological hotels with two locations, one facing the sea, and the other in the village of Tulum. An hour and a half from the airport to Tulum and 50 minutes from Playa del Carmen city.
