Activities like scuba diving and snorkeling are popular because, well, who doesn’t love deep water exploration? It can be intimidating, but the experience is absolutely astonishing. So, put these activities on your bucket list and get ready to read about several places where you can enjoy the hidden wonders of the deep waters.

Plan a romantic getaway to any of these five places and make sure to schedule a snorkeling or scuba diving appointment:

Before we get into it, some of you may be asking what the difference is between snorkeling and scuba diving. They are both incredible water activities, but the difference is that during one you go deeper, and it’s a far more intense and beautiful experience. When you go snorkeling, you wear a snorkel,a mask and a tube, and swim near the surface of the water so you can breathe. During scuba diving, you are in full deep swimming gear, a diving suit and an oxygen tank. Now, let’s get to the places around the world, with the best deep underwater views, where you can partake in some summer fun:

1. Hawaii: You can chose between Maui, Oahu, Kauai, Lanai, Molokai, and Island of Hawaii. All theses places are the ones to go to for some underwater fun. Swim with the dolphins, enjoy the reefs — take it all in. This is just another reason to go to Hawaii. *Starts packing bags*

2. The Maldives: Being one of the most beautiful places in the world, there sure is a lot to be seen in its waters. When scuba diving, you’ll feel like your swimming in a huge aquarium.
