Dive Worldwide and Regaldive under one umbrella
Two of the UK’s best-known dive-tour operators are now stable-mates, forming what the parent company believes to be “the largest dive offering in the UK”.
Hampshire-based The Natural Travel Collection (TNTC) has acquired long-established Ely-based Regaldive from Explore Worldwide Ltd, and will be running it alongside its existing diving holiday brand, Dive Worldwide.
The brands have “complementary areas of specialism”, says TNTC, and they will continue to be operated as separate entities.

The Natural Travel Collection is a small, privately owned travel company established by Teresa Bennett and Chris Breen, who had together founded Dive Worldwide in 2000 to specialise in tailor-made diving holidays worldwide.
“2018 marks 30 years of Regaldive packaging diving holidays,” said Bennett, recognising the company’s expertise in Egypt and the Red Sea region, among other territories. Regaldive has just been voted once again into the top three tour operators in the 2018 Diver Awards.
TNTC has a staff of 40 and also covers general wildlife, birding, walking/trekking and family and schools activity holidays as well as the dive-travel brands.
