The Best Scuba Diving Resorts and Liveaboards for 2020

Scuba Diving Magazine’s 2020 roundup of the best scuba diving resorts, shops, and liveaboards worldwide!

Are you as excited as I am?! It’s finally that time of year when Scuba Diving Magazine releases their annual Reader’s Choice Awards! Scuba Diving Mag’s readers, aka us public folk, vote for our favorite operators throughout 2019 and 2020. The winners are then presented in this delightfully helpful list, ranked by region. If you’re planning a dive trip but are unsure where to go (or who to dive with) this is a good place to start looking for ideas!
