Diving and snorkelling

Bespoke diving holidays worldwide. Tailor made adventures to coral reefs from Australia to Zanzibar!

Whether you have never dived but want to learn or you are an experienced diver, there is a fascinating underwater world out there to be discovered!  Depending on the time of year you want to go, destinations will vary and there are certain natural wildlife migrations that you may want to see such as the Sardine Run in South Africa or Whale Sharks which move around the world at different times.

You can be land based at a gorgeous tropical beach lodge or a luxury spa in the Indian Ocean or be water based on a live aboard dive package using a variety of boat sizes from small yachts to larger cruisers.

If you have a non diving partner travelling with you, that’s fine, they can snorkel or we can arrange different activities for them.

The calendar of diving events around the world offers a huge amount of choice, I am listing here some ideas to get you started, give me a shout to look at specific diving holidays for you.

January – whales in Mexico, sharks in Tahiti and Turtles hatching in Australia. Best water clarity Jan – April around the Maldives.

Thank you for booking our French Caribbean self guided walking holiday to Guadeloupe and Martinique Travel With Jules adapted the original itinerary by Headwater (the operator) to suit our travel needs from Edinburgh and resolved a ridiculously unnecessary booking on a very early transfer flight at no extra cost to us when Headwater had raised a charge.

Our honeymoon to Bali & Lombok, from the moment we decided to use Travel with Jules, was such a fantastic experience and the service we received extremely professional and efficient. It was a delight to have all the flights, transfers and hotels organised so efficiently for us and the process was so professional, yet friendly at the same time. The beaches were beautiful and quiet and we found some great places to sample the delicious local food.

Thailand was great we had an amazing time thank you so much! We loved both the hotels and their locations and would highly recommend both. Resort recommendation was excellent. I'm not sure we would have come across these hotels on our own and they were both exactly what we were looking for. Also thank you for getting such a good price for us. I was surprised that this holiday was not more expensive! Highlights -

All I can say is AWESOME!!!!!! The staff and other visitors at The Body Holiday were so friendly, I didn't feel uncomfortable as a solo traveller (after the first fifteen minutes of watching others obviously!) at all. The hosted communal evening meals were lively, friendly, interesting discussions with perfect strangers, several of whom I subsequently spent meal times with. The service was fantastic, the staff were friendly and I will definitely be looking to travel there again. I would also like to say thank you for putting me on to such a wonderful spot and I would love it if more places were so open to solo travellers and accommodating to different needs. All in all I would score it 10 out of 10!

Highlights included watching the dolphins and the most amazing snorkelling, watching the sun set drinking a cocktail and having the most incredible full body massage and facial looking down on the fishes swimming in the sea! It was an incredible holiday and the best way to spend my 50th birthday! We will definitely recommend your travel services, thank you.

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for organising our lovely relaxing holiday to Thailand. All the transport worked well and the hotel on Koh Samet was just what the doctor ordered. Le Vimarn Cottages was a very quiet resort which was lovely. Banyan Tree Hotel in Bangkok was perfect - the moon bar on top was amazing well worth the very expensive G&T!

Wow, what a trip, it was absolutely wonderful. I am absolutely amazed how few people know about Reunion. I still am shell shocked by the beauty of the island ... tropical birds, rainforests, trekking volcanoes, snorkelling coral reefs ...

Thank you for all your help through the planning and booking over the last year or so for our honeymoon to Kenya & Mozambique. It was a truly magical experience and one we will never forget. Thanks for all your help in creating some fantastic memories for us! Lake Nakuru was stunning. After a boat trip on Lake Naivasha we had a lovely afternoon and evening at Loldia house - weird sitting reading whilst buffalo and hippo are so close! Karen Blixen Camp was a real safari experience. We loved it here the most and were well looked after. Governors hot air balloon ride over the Mara - AMAZING!!

Our holiday to Egypt was great! The Stella di Mare Beach Hotel was lovely and we had an fabulous time. I got my Open Water and the children their Advanced Open Water ..... the instructors at Desert Rose were brilliant .... We even went for a Night Dive which was amazing. We ate most nights at the Asian restaurant which was perfect for us. We would definitely return to Sharm, thank you for organising it.

One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
