Links to the diving world | Dive Travel Agents

Although booking a dive trip direct with an operator is becoming ever more popular, organising everything yourself can be a hefty job. You have to ask all the right questions, ensure you have the right papers and coordinate every aspect involved in travelling abroad. Some people love doing this (us included!) but sometimes the services of a good travel agent cannot be beaten.

Specialist dive agents have access to information not available to the public and they can be incredibly knowledgeable on the regions they promote. They will also take the flack if things go wrong – very important these days – rearrange flights when schedules change or re-book you to another destination if there is a political or natural disaster.

Here are few worldwide agents that we have worked with over the years:

We were introduced to Cindi La Raia over a decade ago by dive legend, friend and mentor, Larry Smith. A truly helpful operator she will only book what she knows is right for her clients. Based in San Francisco, Cindi also runs Africa Discovery.
