GALAPAGOS

Get your motor running during heart-pounding shark encounters in the Galapagos. At known shark hot spots, like this one off Darwin Island, you'll find sharks sometimes numbering in the hundreds--scalloped hammerheads, Galapagos, even whale sharks. This is for experienced divers only. You'll need to handle big swells, heavy surge, strong currents and a gut-wrenching trip to the islands, which lie 600 miles off the western coast of Ecuador. The archipelago--13 large islands, six small islands and more than 107 islets and rocks--supports more than 5,000 unique species of flora and fauna. Many of the species are found nowhere else on earth.

Indonesia

It's nearly impossible to summarize diving in the world's largest archipelago, a vast ribbon of more than 13,000 islands spread out across some of the most diverse marine biosystems on the planet. There are many islands that have never been explored by Westerners, not to mention vast tracts of reef that have never seen a snorkel or scuba tank. No matter where you're diving in Indonesia, the beauty of the reefs is stunning, but the Raja Ampat region is the newest hot spot, where sites like the Wayag Islands, a maze of green islets sprouting from the water, shelter a thriving marine habitat.

Palau

You'll likely see more on one dive in Palau than on your entire previous dive trip. Rimmed by a barrier reef that separates shallow reef lagoons from sheer walls, the 340 islands of this isolated Pacific archipelago shelter a staggering number of marine life--more than 1,400 fish and 350 coral species. The reason: Three ocean currents wash over these reefs, bringing a huge diversity of life-sustaining nutrients. You'll dive into water that is startlingly clear and unforgettably blue and find the reef plastered in a color-filled wonderland of corals, anemones and sponges, a breathtakingly beautiful haven for fish.

Bonaire

Every inch of Bonaire's reef has enjoyed national marine park status for more than 25 years, and the result is healthy stands of gorgonians, dense coral formations and throngs of nearly every species of Caribbean reef fish. Bonaire's small beaches continue under water, starting with a sandy plain that slopes down to 30 feet, and then dropping off gradually; most of the action is in 45 to 60 feet of water where you will be literally mobbed by fish. If you time your trip after the full moon in September and October, plan on making a couple of night dives to see corals spawning.

North Carolina

The big Atlantic sand tiger sharks that patrol North Carolina's waters often congregate around wrecks, like the 412-foot tanker Papoose, 180-foot USCGC Spar and World War II cargo vessel Caribsea. The sharks can be reliably encountered year-round, usually in groups of 10 to 15, but sometimes in larger numbers. The bronze- or gray-colored sharks--which can grow to 10 feet and 350 pounds--swim with their mouths open, exposing three rows of menacing teeth. Though they look ferocious, sand tigers are generally docile and curious, often approaching divers. If you plan to go, make sure that you're at least advanced open-water certified and have some ocean diving experience.

New Providence, Bahamas

If you're looking for a guaranteed Caribbean reef shark encounter, the southwest end of New Providence delivers. You'll make your first dive on a wall where abundant Caribbean and black-tip reef sharks cruise out in the blue. Then comes the real heart-pounding fun: The second dive is at a coral rubble patch in about 45 feet of water; the dive group gathers in a circle on the sand bottom, and the shark feeder uses a spear to deliver chum to some very hungry sharks (read: food fight). At Shark Buoy, about an hour's boat ride from New Providence, divers have chance encounters with silky sharks.

Tahiti

There are few places in the world as picture-perfect as the islands of French Polynesia. In the middle of the South Pacific, these jagged green islands rise out of glittering blue seas. One of the better-known islands in the chain is Tahiti, a lush volcanic island with cloud-shrouded peaks and a similarly exhilarating underwater topography. The island is surrounded by a lagoon and then a drop-off into abyssal depths. Recreational diving is done on the inside of the wall, which is pocked with small caves and dark overhangs full of snapper. But for many divers, the real attraction can be summed up in one word: Sharks.

DOMINICA

The saying "good things come in small packages" definitely applies to Dominica's macro creatures, many of which are hard to spot--secretary blennies, barrel-shaped bumblebee shrimp, longsnout seahorses, golden barberpole shrimp, micid shrimp--and many of which are rare and elusive because of their propensity for hiding--shortnose batfish with their unicorn-like projections and speckled bandtail puffers. All these creatures can be found very close to shore in sand flats, eel grass beds and coral rubble, in very shallow water, usually less than 20 feet. While the southwest corner of the island is touted for its underwater topography, Dominica's entire western coast is ideal for muck diving--bring your macro lens.

British Columbia

With 17,000 miles of Pacific coastline, Canada's westernmost province boasts a diverse range of habitats in its rich waters, including deep walls teeming with dense concentrations of invertebrate and fish life. One of the best is Browning Wall, off the north end of Vancouver Island, which begins 100 feet in the air and plunges 250 feet under water. It's a current-swept site that is covered with a healthy population of orange and red soft corals, giant plumose anemones, nudibranchs, crabs, starfish and urchins. Dives on sheer rock walls off small islets like Flora feature drop-offs packed with bizarre marine life.

Little Cayman

Wherever open ocean abuts a thriving reef and deep water meets shallow, you're likely to find spectacular wall diving, and that's certainly true off Little Cayman. In the hearts and minds of many vertical-dive addicts, the island's Bloody Bay Wall is one of the world's best places to get steep. This drop-off is home to the beautifully adorned Great Wall and the deep swim-through canyons of Marilyn's Cut. Other sites worth your time: Nancy's Cup of Tea, a dramatic cascade of crevices and overhangs on Jackson Wall, and Mixing Bowl, a drop-off that leads to a mini-wall riddled with sand chutes, chimneys and tunnels.
