Jacques Cousteau’s Top 10 Dives

Jacques Cousteau invented the modern scuba diving. He is a reference for this activity and mostly known for all the documentaries he did on the marine life.

He got to see great places. I have found this list of his Top 10 dives. I have visited three sites out of 10 so far. I hope I will get the opportunity to check some other sites on this list!

– Heron Island, The Great Barrier Reef, Australia (dived there in 2014)

Poor Knights Islands, New Zealand (dived there in 2015)

– Cozumel, Mexico (dived there in 2016)

– Richelieu Rock, Phuket, Thailand

– Vancouver Island, BC, Canada

– Sipadan Island, Borneo

– Isla del Coco, Costa Rica

– The Blue Hole, Belize

– Aliwal Shoal, South Africa

– Sha’b Rumi, Sudan



What about you? Have you been to any of these dive sites? How do you choose your diving destinations?


I am a part-time traveler: I combine a full-time job with a passion for traveling. I love to share my trips and tips to inspire others to explore what's around them. Before moving to Australia, I lived in France, England and Turkey. I've finally found my balance in Brisbane.
