The UK’s leading independent dive specialist, Dive Worldwide, has launched its new 2011/12 brochure revealing a new programme to the Red Sea (in style), cave and wreck diving in Malta and Gozo, Antibes in the south of France, and the Azores.

The brochure also features Pulau Weh in Sumatra – back on the tourist map at last – plus Cape Paperu in Maluku and a Miri and Mulu itinerary in /Sarawak.

Comments Teresa Bennett, Director of Dive Worldwide, “Many of our loyal divers who travel with us to the far flung corners of the world including the South Pacific, Asia and the Americas have asked if we can introduce some destinations a little closer to home, so they can enjoy an additional dive trip to their main long haul holiday; hence our new additions this year. The close proximity of both Malta and Antibes to the UK provides the perfect long weekend solution for dive addicts.”

The Red Sea – Dahab/Sharm el Sheikh
Renowned for its cheap packages, Dive Worldwide has introduced a Red Sea programme for those who would rather stay in more comfort. There are options for both hotel or liveaboard holidays including the 5-star 31m Diamond Seacilia or 34m Golden Dolphin vessels. Hotel options include the 5-star Crowne Plaza Sahara Sands at Port Ghalib or the Swiss Inn Resort at Dahab. Diving is operated by the Extra Divers dive centre.

Prices start at £565 pp for a week staying at the Melia Sinai Hotel on a half board basis including flights, transfers, dives and equipment. Dive Worldwide can also tailor-make excursions to Egypt’s famous sites for those who wish to combine diving with some culture.

Malta & Gozo
Comprised of three islands lying to the south of Sicily, Malta’s year round sunshine, complex history, stunning architecture and hospitable people – not to mention its vast array of wrecks, reefs and caves – make it the perfect holiday destination. Dive Worldwide offers a choice of accommodation including the Grand Hotel, located above Mgarr Harbour on Gozo. A week’s stay costs from £725 pp including flights, transfers, B&B plus diving and equipment.

The Azores
The emerald-green, volcanic archipelago of the Azores, is a haven for nature lovers and divers. Great whales and graceful dolphins can be seen from above the water whilst below there is a rich marine biodiversity to discover. Dive Worldwide offers accommodation at the Caloura Hotel Resort on San Miguel, with a week’s stay costing from £1150 pp including flights, transfers, B&B, diving and equipment.

Antibes – south of France
Rub shoulders with the glitterati at this famous resort located on a stunning stretch of coastline close to Nice. Marine life is abundant with corals, gorgonian fans, octopus and barracuda – to name just some. A four-night break (B&B) costs from £475 pp including transfers, six boat dives and equipment (flights extra).

Dive Worldwide offers diving holidays all over the globe including Europe, the Middle East, Asia, South Pacific, the Americas, Caribbean, Africa and the Indian Ocean.
