In the last issue, we introduced you to the “summer range” of the most interesting diving destinations. Now it’s winter season, which means it’s time to stock up with practical knowledge. So, in what warm seas does a diver “wet the gills” in winter?
Perhaps the Maldives is the second most popular after Egypt winter destination for divers. Continue reading
The well-known popular resorts of Langkawi, Penang and Pangkor, located along the west coast of the Malacca peninsula, throughout our “national” winter delight tourists with excellent sunny weather.

In the previous parts of the epic narration of Veronica Birman (which is already fit to publish a separate book), you not only learned the basics of diving tourism, but also learned a lot of details and subtleties of diving as such.
