Dear Dive Buddy,

Where did this year go? Christmas and New Year are already around the corner.
If you haven't already locked in your holidays, there are still some great options to spent the best time of the year diving.

We have a few last minute options for Christmas in this newsletter:
Perhaps a Great White (Shark) Christmas is just what you need?
Wreck diving in the Philippines in January?
Andaman Sea (Thailand)?
or Hammerheads in Cocos?

There is a bit of variety in the specials as always, so you may find something that suits you last minute now, or for 2018.

If you want to travel with your friends next year, do check out the amazing Group Specials of the Aggressor Fleet with discounts plus free spaces.

We have been busy at Diversion Dive Travel to update our website with prices for the new season so you can conveniently check out what we have to offer for 2018 and beyond.
In August we checked out the Maldives on Carpe Novo, You may have the Maldives still on your bucket list or like to return. Verdict in short: The Maldives are worth more than one trip. Pretty active fish life and we were happy to see many Sharks and Mantas. The liveaboards in the Maldives are very modern and spacious. We have a few all year round specials for the Maldives for you.

As we had some technical problems with our July newsletter and some of you may not have received it, we like to share these news with you again: As you know we have a very low credit card surcharge of only 1% on Visa and Mastercards and now we have some fantastic news for you to save you some dollars. If you are using AMEX to pay for your trip, we managed to reduce the card fee from 4% to 1% only!

As always, keep blowing bubbles
