With 2018 well underway, there are plenty of diving highlights to enjoy in the months to come. February is particularly good for shark lovers and is a month with dive highlights around the globe.

Shark fans should head to the Bahamas to enjoy the various species of shark encountered during Bahamas liveaboard diving. The entire archipelago of 700 islands is a shark sanctuary and is particularly well-known for tiger shark dives at Tiger Beach.

Raja Ampat and Komodo in Indonesia are fantastic liveaboard destinations at this time year, where divers can experience colourful dives and abundant marine life. One of the best things about Komodo is the large number of dive locations that provide opportunities to experience manta rays, Komodo dragons, pygmy seahorses and vibrant coral reefs. Raja Ampat is also spectacular, with over 1500 species of fish and 537 species of coral to enjoy.
