8 Captivating Scuba Sites in the World


For scuba divers, the best places on Earth are the ones covered with water. It’s so exciting to discover colorful reefs, haunting wrecks, and unusual animals, and scuba diving is probably the best way to do it. If you’re looking for new and unexpected places to blow bubbles, these incredible spots will blow your mind. It was really hard to narrow this list down to eight, but feel free to add to it after reading through.

1. SS Thistlegorm

There’s a reason why the SS Thistlegorm, located in Egypt’s Red Sea, is the most popular wreck diving spot in the world. At close to 420 feet long, the British transport ship was attacked and sunk in 1941. Today, the ship sits at the bottom of the sea, the gaping hole caused by the German bomb that struck it acting as a window to the ship’s soul. Bring a flashlight, and you’ll be able to see the rusted motorcycles, machine guns, torpedoes, and military equipment that went down with the ship.
