Step One: Determine your own, unique dive vacation preferences.
Listed below are a variety of factors that create a person's unique dive vacation profile. These factors include: marine life, type of diving, diving conditions and location features. A box with a drop down menu is located to the right of each factor under a main heading.
Rate each factor
Position your mouse on the arrow and click. You'll see a drop-down menu with numbers ranging from 1 through 5. Choose a number that best represents the value (or importance) you place on that particular factor. A value of "1" indicates you are not interested or it isn't important. A value of "5" means the factor is critical to you. Study the rating system provided below for an explanation of each value. Then rate each factor. You can click the marine life category names for descriptions of each.
1 = No value or importance.
Please Note:There are very few (if any) dive destinations that have it all. So when you're rating your preferences, remember that rating all factors a "4" or "5" will probably result in only a few matches. Limit your "4" and "5" ratings to one or two critical factors under each heading and you'll increase the number of destination matches.
