The People's

World's best dive site

These battle is for those of you lucky enough to dive all over the globe. I am starting it in hope to capture that knowledge and pass some knowledge on those that are thinking where to go. Good spots are usually full of sea life, beautiful beyond words and are experiences that we remember for a lifetime.
