Maldives is the ultimate island destination. Many resorts are their own islands and feature personal cabanas attached by plank walkways over the water. See the famous bioluminescent phytoplankton beaches on Vaadhoo Island at night that look like an ocean
I'm an avid scuba diver. Ever the domain of the wealthy, scuba diving required both access to the ocean and a shite ton of money for travel & equipment. Not really having any of it, this awesome hobby just kinda passed me by.
Ive swam with sharks but now, i want to swim with a WHALE SHARK! I think this one is on every SCUBA diver's bucket list. to dive with whale sharks. These sharks grow up to 40 feet long and eat krill, getting their reputation as "gentle giants".
