    Wondering where some of the best scuba diving places are that other members have been too.

    For myself, Jeddah {Saudi Arabia) clear clean water with great fish and plat life.
    Santorini Greece. Clear water, not to many cool plants or fish but the natraul underwater cliffs and rock walls are impressive due to varius wall colors.

    Bonaire is probably my favorite so far. Lots of variety of dive sites,and you don't have to dive wherever some cattle boat takes you. You drive to whatever shore dive sites you feel like doing that day.

    Definitely Bonaire. Very laid back island. Beautiful water and sites. But as mentioned, don't waste your money on the boats - just drive to the yellow markers of your choice and hop in!

    One of my favourite sites is hardly mentioned but is impressive nonetheless is Long Point on California's Catalina Island: starts shallow and slopes to a sheer cliff to an abyss. Kelp forests, fish galore and when the water is very clear and the sun is shining, the colours are so brilliant it is like being in a cartoon!

    Semporna National Park just off of Malaysian Borneo is absolutely amazing. Giant fish and sunken structures everywhere.

    I would have to say Belize the people are great and the diving is great. Belize is located south of Mexico east of Guatamalla the island of Ambergris Caye pronounced key. The island sits on the great Barier reef. The water is warm and clear. The fish are abundant as well as a good chance of seeing a sea turtles and dolphins. The area lends it's sell well to all levels of diving. Check out Ecological Divers they have a great staff all local guys who love diving.

    Warm water dives have a lot going for them, but they're a bit like diving in the desert, while cold water dives are more like a jungle. Once I dove "B Buoy," north of the San Juan Islands then got on a plane and dove Key West the next weekend. Can't get farther apart than that in the "continental" US. One wasn't "better" than the other, just different.

    Warm water: colorful fish, dull invertebrates. Cold water: dull (but big!) fish, colorful invertebrates. Marine mammal encounters.

    The Raja Empat area of Indonesia.

    Took 2 1/2 days to get there, well worth it.
