Active local divers are naturally interested in travel and are curious and/or adventurous enough to explore new and exotic locales. Dive travel includes more than underwater exploration; it's also about delving into the sights, sounds, tastes, and even shopping of different cultures. In fact, many active divers begin as active travelers. | Contact Scuba Center to plan your dive trip today!

  Cuba: Jan 21-28, 2018
This trip is full. Please contact us if you have questions or to be put on a wait list.
Cuba Diving Research Trip | Legal Educational Travel to Cuba for U.S. Citizens & Residents Join Scuba Center as we continue to explore Cuba. We have completed several trips to Cuba since 2013 and have experienced firsthand the wonderful diving and fascinating culture that Cuba offers. This land based trip includes dive research opportunities as well as many cultural research experiences.
   
  Raja Ampat Indonesia S/Y Indo Siren luxury liveaboard: Feb 8-25, 2018*
This trip is full. Please contact us if you have questions or to be put on a wait list.
S/Y Indo Siren luxury liveaboard | Raja Ampat Indonesia Group Dive Trip We are excited to announce a return trip to Indonesia with the S/Y Indo Siren luxury liveaboard. Same boat (and likely the same crew) as our last trip, but this time we are diving Raja Ampat. Raja Ampat currently offers what most think to be the best tropical diving in Indonesia -  maybe the world. Raja Ampat is all about diversity, not only of marine species but also of dive sites. Recently declared a marine sanctuary the 46,000 square km park gives you wildly different dive experiences. From pelagic drift dives to magical dark sand muck dives (and even some habitats that are special to Raja Ampat such as clear water mangroves with corals growing right next to them) there are thousands of potential dive sites in Raja Ampat.
   
  Yap / Palau Aggressor liveaboard: Feb 26 - Mar 12, 2018
Due to a last minute cancellation, we have one space available for our trip this coming February.
A discount is available for this single space.
PALAU AGGRESSOR II |   This Scuba Center adventure begins with a 4 night stay at the Manta Ray Bay Resort, Yap. Enjoy 3 days of 3 tank boat diving and explore rich coral walls and caverns that Yap offers. The trip then moves to our next destination with a flight to Palau, Micronesia. After a night at the West Plaza by the Sea Hotel, our group boards the Palau Aggressor II for a week of diving. Palau's mushroom-shaped rock islands offer a variety of exciting dives: WWII wrecks, channels, blue holes, and even a few caverns. There are also sheer walls covered in lush soft corals and huge anemones. Beginner divers may find Palau's strong currents challenging.
   
  Little Cayman: Mar 3-10, 2018
This trip is full. Please contact us if you have questions or to be put on a wait list.
From Phillipe Cousteau to David Doubliet, just about every diver who has experienced its reefs has stated that Little Cayman is one of the world’s premier dive destinations – with pristine reefs, excellent visibility and incredible diving. | Group Diving Trip  Why do we keep returning to Little Cayman over the years? Simply put, Little Cayman has some of the best diving the Caribbean has to offer. The Cayman Islands are located 150 miles south of Cuba in the Caribbean Sea. Little Cayman Beach Resort is situated on a private beach on the south shore of Little Cayman, bordered by the South Hole Sound, a turquoise lagoon protected by the reef. The Cayman Islands have strict Marine Conservation Laws and many of the 57 dive sites are within protected Marine Park Zones. Coral canyons and sand chutes lead you through the pristine deep blue waters of the outer reef before plunging to 6000 ft. These exhilarating walls are covered with brightly hued sponges, corals and sea fans. Cousteau had said the Bloody Bay wall is among the ten best dives in the world.

  Antarctica m/v Plancius liveaboard: Feb 26-Mar 12, 2019
Antarctica m/v Plancius liveaboard: 2019 |   A world very few have ever experienced. Those who come aboard our Antarctica cruises get to explore one of the last true untouched wildernesses on the planet. An Antarctic cruise is an opportunity to visit an area of the Earth that has remained largely unchanged since the time when Aristotle first gave the world the idea of a Terra Australis. Explorers get the chance to investigate one of the world’s densest concentrations of undisturbed animal life, visiting with the expert survivalists who make the continent their home – seals, whales, and all those penguins. Our Antarctica cruises offer you an experience unlike any you’ve ever had before. Take a Zodiac ride among the blue and white icebergs that tower above the water, kayak alongside curious whales, pay respects to a curious penguin, or dive into a new world under water.
   
  Solomon Islands Taka liveaboard: Oct 5-18, 2019
Taka liveaboard dive trip Solomon Islands |   Solomon Islands has some of the most pristine dive sites in the world. Unspoiled and undiscovered, the remote location means there are not many divers to put pressure on the reef and fish. They have caverns, reefs, large sea fans, soft corals and lots of macro including a huge diversity of nudibranchs, pygmy seahorse, ghost pipefish and more. The reef is covered in a variety of hard corals home to mandarin fish, eels and masses of reef fish. Many of the islands are surrounded by deep walls which allow divers to interact with schools of pelagics. The diversity of the Solomon's is hard to beat. Taka is a 100 foot mono hull live-aboard dive vessel. Built in 2004 and custom designed for diving, she is spacious inside and out.
