A worldwide Alliance of like minded individuals who own & operate luxury live-aboard dive vessels in the world’s most highly sought after dive destinations – The DivEncounters Alliance has arrived!

…into whose hands will you place your trust?

When Experience Counts…

Founded in early 2011 by Peter A. Hughes, with four plus decades of experience in the Recreational Dive Industry, our Mission Statement is simple: To provide a reliable, professional and safe live-aboard scuba experience ensuring your vacation leaves nothing to be desired and meets or exceeds your every expectation, making us your obvious first choice for the very best live-aboard scuba experience available in the world today!

Independent Owners

The structure of the Alliance allows for the carefully crafted, tried & true operational protocols of the independent owners/operators of each vessel to remain in effect and does not attempt to initiate or enforce “franchise” style standards upon Alliance partner vessels.

Location, Location, Location

All Alliance partners are carefully vetted & selected before inclusion and we will never claim to be “the largest in the world” but simply “the best in the world”, providing you with an unforgettable scuba experience in the world’s most exciting dive destinations:  The Galapagos Islands , Socorro & Guadalupe Islands (Mexico), Cocos Island (Costa Rica),  Bay Islands Honduras, Palau, and two locations in the Maldives (1) (2).
