With a fine choice of holiday and diving locations already under its belt, Diverse Travel has now added more choice for divers to see the world, thanks to the appointment of Holly Gibson.
Holly joins the team having worked in the travel industry for over 20 years. She started in retail travel and spent many years in corporate travel where she mastered the art of putting together some of the most complicated itineraries for discerning travellers. Having qualified as a diver in 2001, Holly was bitten by the ‘underwater bug’ and had the opportunity to combine her passion for diving with her career. “I am extremely excited to be joining the team and sharing my wealth of knowledge about the world’s top diving destinations. Whether it’s a single or multiple destination trip or even a ’round the world trip’ diving all the top destinations in one go, do call us for some good old friendly advice!”
Cocos Island, Palau and Socorro Islands are three new additions to the company’s portfolio with more to follow soon.
The stunning Cocos Island, off the coast of Costa Rica, is a protected reserve home to some of the most challenging diving on the planet. Divers can choose their timing and see huge schools of hammerheads and, most recently, tiger sharks!
