Active local divers are naturally interested in travel and are curious and/or adventurous enough to explore new and exotic locales. Dive travel includes more than underwater exploration; it's also about delving into the sights, sounds, tastes, and even shopping of different cultures.

 Little Cayman Beach Resort | Scuba Center Group Dive Trip Why do we keep returning to Little Cayman over the years? Simply put, Little Cayman has some of the best diving the Caribbean has to offer. The Cayman Islands are located 150 miles south of Cuba in the Caribbean Sea. Little Cayman Beach Resort is situated on a private beach on the south shore of Little Cayman, bordered by the South Hole Sound, a turquoise lagoon protected by the reef. The Cayman Islands have strict Marine Conservation Laws and many of the 57 dive sites are within protected Marine Park Zones. Coral canyons and sand chutes lead you through the pristine deep blue waters of the outer reef before plunging to 6000 ft. These exhilarating walls are covered with brightly hued sponges, corals and sea fans. Cousteau had said the Bloody Bay wall is among the ten best dives in the world.
   
  Pacific Northwest: Aug 19-27, 2022
Join Scuba Center for an amazing Pacific Northwest diving adventure to God's Pocket Resort. | Group Dive Trip  Most divers think tropics when they plan their dive destination.

In 2014 Scuba Center ran a trip to the same area and the group is still talking about it. To say they were blown away is an understatement. It’s whole new world of colorful fish and invertebrates. Photographers have a field day taking photos or videos of subjects they likely have never seen before. We are excited to announce a return trip to God’s Pocket, British Columbia.
