Big in Bali and Cocos

Dive Worldwide says it has two hot possibilities line up for divers seeking big pelagics.

The first is in Bali, with the chance to dive the reefs of Nusa Lembongan, Ceningan and Penida.

Manta encounters happen there year-round, though if you time it right Mola mola are also a possibility. Eleven days from £1425 covers return flights from the UK, a night on the mainland, seven nights’ B&B in Nusa Lembongan, transfers and 10 dives.

Across the Pacific is remote shark-magnet Cocos, and the tour operator has dedicated departures aboard the liveaboard Argo timed for peak hammerhead season.

It has 10-night itineraries departing 13 August and 8 September from £5095, including flights from the UK, one night’s B&B in San Jose and transfers.
