Rarely can you find unadulterated reviews and recommendations for places to scuba dive, snorkel or freedive. SSI has created a comprehensive location finder called MyDiveGuide to help solve this dilemma.
SSI has revolutionized the ability to search for your next underwater adventure. As snorkelers, scuba divers or freedivers we are inspired by the underwater world with its marine life in all shapes and sizes. The scale of life on this planet is amazing, approximately 50-80% of all life on earth is found in the ocean. But what and where are the best aquatic animal encounters worldwide? From turtles, dolphins, and sharks to the rarely sighted ocean sunfish or even tiny little seahorses – we all share the same fascination with ocean animals.
To assist divers in their quest to locate the best places to explore, SSI enhanced its award winning website and mobile app to allow you to search the world for your next destination. Best of all, it is free! The Dive Log system developed several years ago serves as the backdrop for the tool. The logged dives of hundreds of thousands of people are searchable and has been turned into a virtual destination finder. This tool enables the user to search and locate prospective destinations based on types of creatures and types of dives one may wish to undertake while on vacation. Details on the destinations are provided such as site names and locations, numbers of logged dives at the site, pictures, creatures that may be encountered and available dive training and services in the area.
Don’t take our word for it. Take a look at this short video on the service and then try it for yourself. If you do not have the SSI App, you can download it using one of these links for your favorite iOS or Android device and start using it today. It is a fully functional version and you do not have to be an SSI certified diver to use it. if you would rather test drive it from the convenience of your computer, go to the SSI website and give it a try by clicking here.
