OK Next Scuba Diving Trip???

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I just got back from Grand Cayman in Cayman Islands. We got certified there and absolutely loved the diving. We are looking to book our next diving trip and want some advice on beach destinations.

As I understand it, Cayman has some of the best diving in the world, so we have been very spoiled. I saw that Bahamas has a shark dive, which is very appealing to us, so we are strongly considering that. However, what about the rest of their diving? Any good? We are also considering Hawaii because we hear there's a lot of turtles. What about the other Caribbean islands? I know some of them aren't really for diving, more for lying around on the beach...

In addition, something that is important to us is availability of upscale hotels/resorts, dining, and shopping. Hawaii, being the USA, would fulfill that criteria. Cayman also has very low poverty, low crime. However, I've read that the hotels in the Bahamas might be rather old and the surrounding areas more "poor." Is this true or an exaggeration? How does it compare to Seven Mile Beach for instance? Even on Cayman though, we kind of stuck to the "Westernized", touristy areas because the island became totally deserted after 5 pm, making us feel a little vulnerable, especially since we are obviously tourists.

What other Caribbean destinations can you suggest that have great diving and also have nice resorts to stay at? How about Turks & Caicos and St. Bart's? I'm skeptical about their diving though.

For reference we are a couple in our mid 20s, very chill and NOT interested in nightlife, gambling, drinking, or any crazy activities. Just want to dive, snorkel, relax on a nice beach, and eat at a nice restaurant (and maybe ride a wave runner or two)!
