PLUNGE into the deep end this year on a scuba diving holiday in Vanuatu, the Micronesian Islands, Borneo or Fiji.

Student Flights is offering dive packages that include accommodation, scuba diving outings with certified instructors, scuba equipment, meals, return airport transfers and more.

At each destination, qualified instructors and experienced dive masters will do their best to ensure you see the best of every site.

Hideaway Island, Vanuatu

Scuba aficionados and novice divers can learn from the experts at Hideaway Island, the only marine sanctuary in Vanuatu located just five minutes by ferry from main island of Efaté.

Student Flights is offering a package from $359* per person quad share, which includes four nights accommodation at the 3-star Hideaway Island Resort & Marine Sanctuary in a dormitory room, continental breakfast daily, two scuba dive sessions for certified divers with all scuba dive equipment and return airport transfers.

Other highlights include a cultural walk and kava tasting in Mele Village, one glass bottom boat ride, use of snorkel gear, kayaks, paddle boat and sailboats, and a snorkel safari to the Coral Gardens.

The package is valid for travel from February 1 to April 4, from April 15 to June 30, from July 15 to September 20, from October 1 to 13 and from October 22 to November 25, 2012.

Palau, Micronesian Islands

Palau is rumoured to be one of the world's best diving sites, particularly for its Rock Islands, but also for offering divers a tropical paradise of unspoiled coral gardens and amazing marine life.

Student Flights has a package, priced from $529* per person twin share, which includes four nights accommodation at the 3.5-star Palasia Hotel in a deluxe twin view room, breakfast daily, two scuba dive sessions for certified divers with all scuba equipment, plus lunch and refreshments on the dive day and return airport transfers. All certified divers receive free Nitrox up to 36%.

The package is valid for travel from January 10 to April 26, and from May 6 to July 15, 2012.

Lankayan Island, Borneo

Borneo has plenty of excellent dive sites, but what makes Lankayan Island special is that it is nestled in a marine protected area, within a sea turtle corridor, so you might get to see baby turtle hatchlings from June to September. 

From $1149* per person twin share, this package includes four nights accommodation at the 3.5 star Lankayan Island Dive Resort in a chalet, buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, afternoon snacks, three boat dives daily for certified divers with tanks, weights and dive guide services, unlimited day dives and complimentary night dives for advanced divers and return airport transfers.

The package is valid for travel from January 10 to March 31, 2012.

Beqa Island, Fiji

Encounter some of the most unique fish and see the varied rocky pinnacles at Beqa Island, known as Fiji's most popular diving destination, just off the south coast of Viti Levu.

From $1229* per person twin share, Student Flights is offering a package that includes four nights accommodation at the four-star Beqa Lagoon Resort in a Garden Bure, breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, two boat dives for certified divers with tanks, weights and dive guide services, unlimited shore dives on diving days and return airport transfers.
