Scuba diving tips around the world

Newspaper readers give personal favourites
Readers of the newspaper The Guardian give their personal tips on some of the less obvious places around the world for wrecks, weird fish and good diving companies.
The “winning tip” is for ‘muck diving’ in the Lembeh Strait, Indonesia, “home to critters such as the mimic octopus, hairy frogfish and flamboyant cuttlefish,” writes reader Deepa Ramchandani.
In the better known dive location of the Maldives, reader Huw Rowlands describes the “gentle giants” of the clear blue ocean, the huge whale sharks. “It was a seven-day liveaboard visiting some of the best dive sites I’ve ever been to.”
Others in the article, which can be read here, describe the divers’ paradise of Ningaloo Reef, Australia; snorkelling in sapphire blue waters surrounding Gili Air, Indonesia; seeing ‘psychedelic’ frogfish in Tekek Ambon, Indonesia; experiencing playful seal pups off Skomer Island, Pembrokeshire, UK; diving on a shoestring in Honduras; cenote diving in Mexico; diving throughout the year even with little experience in Cirkewwa, Malta, and more.
