Dive the World - International Diving Magazine

Recently launched, this new look global lifestyle magazine concentrates on amazing images in their articles. They say a picture tells a thousand words...

Concentrating on extraordinary dive experiences, dive travel, exotic location and exciting marine life encounters. A relatively new idea in dive publishing, DIVE THE WORLD is for the travelling diver who enjoys easy tropical diving, marine life encounters and exotic adventures.

Editor-in-chief Jesper KjĂžller extolls what his new publication will and won’t do: ”In our opinion many dive magazines kill the underwater images by cramping too many and too small photographs together in too little space – and then they suffocate the pages further with ugly advertising. Diving is visual activity and with DIVE THE WORLD we will let the images speak for themselves. Our goal is to take the reader along with us on a dive, even if they are relaxing in an armchair or airplane seat with the magazine. Properly telling a story requires space, and we will gladly let an article fill 16 to 20 pages if that is what it takes to bring a story to life.”

The first edition features plenty of destinations featured by Dive Worldwide:
World class diving, Maldives
Sailfish Season, Mexico
Critters in Lembeh, Indonesia
Diver's Paradise, Bonaire
Whales and dolphins, Azores

Talk to an expert on these and any of our other fantastic diving holiday destinations to tailor-make your next diving holiday.

Mexico - Diving the Cenotes

A combination of various geological events and climate changes created an incredible and unique eco-system in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Created naturally over 6,500 years ago, the Cenotes (pronounced say-no-tay, meaning "sacred well") are filled with crystal clear, fresh water opening to a vast system of underground caverns, tunnels and chambers. For thousands of years, these caves had been dry, forming stalagmites, stalactites, columns and flowstones. In some places, the land above subterranean rivers have collapsed, creating access for divers to explore these ancient passageways. A unique dive experience, learn more here.
