The Top 10 Dive Resorts -- for Non-Divers, Perhaps

from the January, 2014 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

In November, Fox News's website ran an article, prepared by the Gayot Guide, called the "The World's Top Ten Dive Resorts." While on one hand, it looks like a list of comfy beds, accommodations at the one U.S. destination were not even listed. Here's what Gayot came up with.

The Top 10 Dive Resorts -- for Non-Divers, Perhaps* Huvafen Fushi, North Male Atoll, Maldives
* Four Seasons Resort, Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt
* Bonne Terre Mine, Missouri (no resort listed)
* Octotal Beach Resort, Playa Ocotal, Costa Rica
* Blue Waters Inn, Batteaux Bay, Tobago
* Amankila, Bali
* Hotel Ilio, Italy
* Tanjong Jara Resort, Dungun, Malaysia
* Palau Pacific Resort, Koror
* Capella Lodge, Lord Howe Island, Australia

Bali diving over Raja Ampat or Lembeh? Lord Howe Island instead of Lizard Island, with its giant potato cod? A quarry listed as the top dive resort in the U.S., where the accommodations are motel-driven? Italy? Tobago's modest BlueWaters Inn (though we like the diving there, as you see in this issue)? Thumbs down to Gayot, and to Fox News for accepting this sub-par travel piece as good advice for its readers.
