Island Scuba Diving Cruises

Vacation can be a variety of activities enjoyed by families, singles, or even groups of friends. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes where people embark on journeys to locations around the globe. While some people enjoy shopping, five star dining, and relaxation, others prefer exciting adventures in hopes of catching a glimpse of something rare or majestic. For those people who are looking for excitement and adventure, scuba diving cruises may be just the ticket. Scuba diving cruise deals allow one person or the entire family to create their own adventure by exploring worlds beneath the world's oceans, rivers, and lakes. There are a number of scuba diving cruises and travel destinations for those seeking a more hands-on experience during vacation. Major cruise lines facilitate this particular form of adventure, some of which are:

- Royal Caribbean
- Nekton Diving Cruises
- Princess Cruise Line

These are just a few of the major cruise lines that offer scuba diving cruises as there are many other smaller fleets that have these services as well.

Cruise Liner Deck


A big question for those considering a scuba diving cruise revolves around the issue of certification. While some of the more experienced and exotic locations may require one to carry a diver certification letter, many major companies provide the certification needed in a short morning class before the dive. For this reason, many people have begun to explore the many possibilities of scuba diving cruises.

Where to Go

Another question many people may ask is concerned with the proper destination for scuba diving. There are scuba diving opportunities all over the world. However, some areas offer more exotic underwater environments. Hawaii is one of the most popular scuba diving destinations in the world. One can fly to the island of Hawaii and board a diving cruise vessel from the island. There, one will enjoy a number of days aboard the ship while it cruises the major diving areas surrounding the Hawaiian Islands. The Caribbean is also known throughout the world for its beautiful undersea landscapes. However, the Caribbean also gives divers the opportunities unavailable in other destinations. Shipwreck diving is one of the most sought after experiences in the diving community and the coast of Virginia down through the Caribbean offers hundreds of wrecks to explore dating all the way back to the 1600s.

Different Packages

There are a number of packages one may choose when searching for a scuba diving cruise. For instance, some may want to begin their voyage from the mainland and cruise a large luxury liner to their destinations. A smaller diving ship launches from the luxury liner once the liner reaches the destinations. However, there are packages where people may wish to enjoy a day scuba diving cruise. Day cruises allow one to explore a number of destinations without spending their whole vacation on a ship.
