Diving spots
 
Hello everyone. I recently got my scuba diving license. I scheduled a diving trip to the Florida Keys but everyday was rained out. The only place i have dived was in michigan and it was a shipwreck. It was amazing. I really want to dive in saltwater though. Any places I should go?

I haven't even been close to all the spots I hope to someday dive but of the ones I've been to this is how I rank them:
  1. Hawaiin Islands
  2. Society Islands
  3. Florida Keys
  4. Costa Rica
  5. Baja Peninsula, Mexico
  6. Southern California & Catalina Island
  7. Isle of Capri, Southern Italy
  8. Lake Tahoe
I go to the Hawaiin Islands over and over again. There are over 300 species that live there and no where else in the world. It's amazing!

What wreck in Michigan? I lived in MI for 40 years, that's where I learned to dive. Now I live in South Florida.

Saltwater - best bang for your buck is Cozumel and the diving there is amazimg.

Some of the places I've dove are (but not limited to)...

Every one of the Great Lakes (lots)
Canada
Florida (from the caves in N. FL to The Keys)
Cozumel, MX
Tulum, MX
Akumal, MX
Crand Cayman, Cayman Brac & Little Cayman
Turks & Caicos
Honduras
Belize
Coco's Island, Costa Rica (for the Hammerhead migration...AWESOME!)
Thailand
Myannmar

Dang im going to have a big check list now lol. I have heard great things about fiji aswell and the red sea. But the place that i went to (I forgot the name of it) was up in traverse city about 30 yards from the bay. The wreck itself was around 30-35 feet deep. I have snorkeled in hawaii and that has been my favorite spot by far to snorkel, but i want to dive it. Have you heard of malokini and lanai?
