Lightfoot’s specialists have travelled far and wide to create our ultra-luxury collection of diving experiences. We’ve handpicked a wide array of stunning diving location and luxury resorts, including a few secret gems that you may not find anywhere else. Talk to our team to find out more!

Our clients have plunged beneath the transparent tropical waters of Malaysia trailing manta rays and dolphins, and glided through the heavenly atolls of the Maldives. They’ve even followed the path of legendary conservationist Jacques Couseau diving off the coast of Borneo’s Sipadan Island.

Recent tours have included Western Australia’s kaleidoscopic Ningaloo Reef, and Indonesia’s far-flung Raja Ampat with its mind-blowing coral gardens, teeming with rays, sharks, parrotfish and turtles.
