The Best Dives in the World
The November 1991 issue of Outside Magazine ranked what are considered to be the four best dive sites in the world. In no particular order, they are:
Lava tubes at Kauai, Hawaii
Bloody Bay Wall at Little Cayman (coral near wall in photo to right)
The Blue Hole at Belize
Bommies, a.k.a. coral pinnacles, at the Great Barrier Reef, Australia
In 2004, readers of Rodale's Scuba Diving Magazine ranked what they considered to be the best dive sites in the Caribbean/Atlantic:
Little Cayman & Cayman Brac
US Virgin Islands
Grand Turk & Salt Cay, Turks & Caicos
Of the dives I have done in the Caribbean (Belize, Bonaire, Cozumel, Little Cayman, and US Virgin Islands), I would make the following assessments between them:
Cozumel has the best visibility, drift diving, and swim-throughs.
Belize has the best big sea life and topside adventures.
Bonaire has the best macro life.
Little Cayman has the best wall dives.
