5 Spots You NEED to Scuba

The web is full of lists of the best dive sites, and I thought it was about time that Reef-N-Rail gave our take. Here are the 5 spots that we think every scuba diver should put on his or her bucket list.

5. Barrier Islands, North Carolina

This spot is ideal for scuba divers on a budget who don’t want to dig out their passports for a great location. While most of the spots on this list are marine life havens, Barrier Islands is known more for its wreck diving. Wrecks from the 16th century along with more recent ones including a German U-Boat from WWII make up the over 600 shipwrecks in this area. This spot is also much less crowded year round than most top scuba destinations, though diving in the winter does require a heavy wetsuit.

Making the Most of Your Travels

When exploring somewhere new, it can be overwhelming to think of all the different things to see and do while there. Regardless of how much planning and mapping you do ahead of time, there are usually countless things you wish you’d had more time for or factored in had you known about them earlier. Popular vacation and tourist destinations are often known for specific landmarks, food restaurants, works of art, festivals, or cultural vibes. So how exactly does one “see it all?”

Picking up city guides at the local visitors center can give you the chance to pick up a map that will save time en route, and help you make the most of the areas you cover. Walking into local shops and asking the employees working there for suggestions on what to see and do usually yields positive results from those who work in the area day in and day out. Getting a City Pass that can be used at several popular attractions, like those offered in New York, Toronto, Chicago and other cities, are often cheaper than paying the regular ticket price to see them independently, which can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
