2016 my list will more than likely include diving South Africa-- somewhere somehow diving, plus cage diving with Great White Sharks, plus a land tour that would include a wild animal safari.

Other options mentioned in this thread are also very strong options.

Susan, I can help you with the land-based portion of the Africa trip, if you are interested.

Open to any and all suggestions since I have not yet started researching the trip yet. At this point I just know that I want to dive in South Africa, plus max the cost and time of the trip to see a safari. Life's too short to keep putting off this trip, so the piggy bank has been started to pay for it.

AFRICA:

If anyone has done any research...or wants to do the research PLEASE let us know. Big trips like these need to be locked in early and I only know the water is colder than our typical diving so the right season will be critical. if we go with Truk in April as we are looking at...that leaves fall. HOPEFULLY fall is a good time for AFRICA!!!

I can chg TRUK but need 2 back to back trips and they are hard to come by even this far out.

Hehe, I just searched "Red Sea" - because I couldn't believe that never came up on here - and here we go....:clapping:/> It has been mentioned here.

The Red Sea is certainly spectacular - and Egypt seems to be slowly going back to normal...the resorts at the Red Sea have never been affected much - friends and family have - and keep - travelling...

But, as a different idea - how about Oman? I heard people raving about it before...:cheerleader:/>

the Padi site has a good article on Oman. One guy at LDS went a couple years back and said he loved it. I definitely would be interested in either a Red Sea or Oman trip.

The Sardine run in South Africa takes place between May and July every year. All the big critters come in for that, talk about a bucket list dive.

The Solomon Islands aboard the Bilikiki. Daniella & Chaba cruise directors. I'd do the trip again.

The safest way to do a liveaboard in the Red Sea can be done by flying in to Marsa Alam Internation Airport and then a 3-5 minute drive to Port Ghalib versus hours in a bus across Egypt. There is a new liveaboard that is doing its first 10 day trips in early 2015. Marsa Alam can easily be accessed by a connected flight through Kairo.
