Dive Into The Deep

The count is rising on the great swathes of ocean that Davidoff Cool Water is helping to protect with its Love The Ocean campaign in partnership with National Geographic. In addition to the areas of ocean that have already been protected, you can help to protect a further 10,000 square metres when you buy a bottle of Davidoff Cool Water. Even simply adding a ‘Like’ on the Davidoff Cool Water Facebook page will help to protect another 5,000 square metres. So, proverbially take the plunge and offer your support – and you can literally do so by visiting our top five diving recommendations across the planet.

Shark Arena, Bahamas

It may sound like an underwater battleground but the reef and blacktip sharks that haunt the Arena are completely safe, giving you the chance to get up close and personal. Daunting, yes, but the stunning wall dive in New Providence – often used in James Bond underwater scenes – makes it all worth it.

Silfra Rift, Iceland

A fan of cooler waters? This may be for you: the temperature here usually floats between two and minus four degrees. But, dry suited, it’s more than manageable – and worth it, with astonishing visibility stretching 300 miles. And there’s the lagoon, where bubbles rise from the rock floor as gas escapes within the earth’s crust.

Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef, Egypt

Egypt can often be overladen with diving tourists but thankfully here in Ras Mohammed National Park just one company has exclusive diving rights. The coral is pristine – but the current is strong. So this is a trip suited to the more experienced of divers.

Stingray Rock, New Zealand

The Alderman Islands are a littleknown part of New Zealand that provide a challenging location for advanced divers. Beneath the surface, you’re likely to see pink maomao, butterfly perch, demoiselle and trevally jack. You might even be lucky enough to spy a kingfish, shark or marlin.

USS Kittiwake, Cayman Islands

This decommissioned submarine was placed 65 feet under the surface to create an artificial reef. At its highest points, the attraction not only attracts divers but snorkellers. Massive apertures in the sub mean divers can dip in and out to see a plethora of squirrelfish, arrow grabs and eels.
