The Ultimate Diving Gap Year
Whether you've basically got gills or you've never donned a pair of fins before, this set of flights will get you off to a great start on your scuba diving life.
First up, fly into Bangkok, which is pretty ideal as it's just a short hop from Koh Tao, which issues the most PADI licenses per year anywhere in the world. Once you're certified, you can then work your way overland down through the some of the best dive spots in the world - the southern islands of Thailand, Malaysia and even bits of Indonesia before heading back to Kuala Lumpur to carry on your adventure.
From there, fly down to Melbourne and check out this amazing dive site, home to a huge range of depths you can dive to and a whole host of wrecks to dive in the Ship's Graveyard.
Next up, hop to Cairns and dive the amazing Great Barrier Reef from here. You'll explore a vast underwater world with myriad colourful fish, reefs, coral and maybe even some sharks!
Throwing in a curveball, we've also added in a little side trip to Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea so you can explore see what's going on in the vastly underrated dive site.
Back to Australia and time for some classic gap year travel - the East Coast of Australia, which just happens to be be home to Magnetic Island and a big old stretch of the Great Barrier Reef too. Magnetic Island has to be seen to be believed and we're reliably informed is home to some of the world's most beautiful dive sites.
Wind up in Sydney before jetting over, via LA, to Costa Rica where things just get even better. Home to an unbelievable biodiversity both on land and underwater you really are spoilt for choice here. Whether you want to dive the Osa Peninsula or the Gulf of Papagayo, you won't regret it!
Finally, head overland stopping off in Belize and any other beauty spot you care to mention in Central America before flying home from Mexico City.
