Hi, my 14 yr old (PADI cert) son and myself ( who can just about snorkel) are looking to travel somewhere suitable for the both of us in March 2007. Distance isn't a obstacle. It would be great if he could dive as many sites as possible within a 2 week period - we will be travelling independently and would like to travel within the area if possible. We have considered Australia & Hawaii but would appreciate some comments from divers before committing to anything. Many thanks.

Hi glideyglow
Start with the two locations you have and check out a few dive centres to see what they are offering. At the end of the day I feel that it will be the dive centre and their services that will make your holiday. If it was me I would be looking for a friendly / family based centre that will have more patience not a production line centre just interested in the profit!

Thanks Mark - I will check out the website asap. Did you notice if there were any families around as I think my son may be bored of my company after the novelty of being on holiday has worn off!
