Budget Dive Guides

You don't have to be rich to be enriched!

"Budget" and "Diving" might sound like a contrast to you as scuba diving is widely considered a rather expensive activity.
However, despite being a somewhat prestige activity, I think scuba diving should be possible for anyone who's interested in exploring the underwater world - no matter which financial background you come from.

Just like budget traveling, budget diving is a lot about being able to change your way of thinking and set priorities differently. I started looking into the subject of budget diving in 2017, and I am eager to share my ideas with you regarding going scuba diving without having to spend a fortune. And believe it or not, budget diving also offers a few awesome benefits that make it a holiday option worth considering.

My Budget Dive Guides contain useful information and tips on how to dive on a budget, and are based on my own experiences. I only review and recommend places I’ve been to myself. If you have any questions concerning my guides or the places I recommend, just drop me a line.
