    I think the best diving is wherever you can get wet... But then again I'm biased because there happens to be great diving year round where I live.

    Seriously, if I can get wet, it's great to me! I would love to go diving in far an exotic places and that list is endless, but I won't torture myself that way when I can drive 30 minutes and dive right here. But even if I didn't live here I would look at every opportunity to get wet as a great experience wherever that may be.
    3/4 of the Earth are covered by water and 1/4 by land. Clearly God intended us to spend 3 times as much time fishing and diving than mowing the lawn. - Wiz

    Right now a bathtub would be the best place to dive.

    Actually, you need to be more specific. What type of best diving?

    Best cave/cavern? - Mexico
    Best reef? - best I have seen is the Caymans, but I hear that Indo has the best.
    Best drift? -Coz was pretty sweet.
    Best wreck? - dunno yet
    Saltwater wreck?
    Freshwater wreck?
    Best kelp? - dunno
    Best quarry? - dunno
    Best resevior? - Tablerock lake

    Pretty good list. Indonesia probably has the world's best biodiversity in reef life. Best saltwater wrecks are probably Truk Lagoon, or for the technically inclined with DEEP pockets, Bikini Atoll is supposed to be pretty fracking amazing.

    Best Kelp is probably Monterey, followed by the Channel Islands in SoCal. Can't help with quarries and reservoirs, I prefer salt in my dive water!

    I know this probably doesn't factor into this discussion from a pure diving perspective, but I would also add into my consideration non-diving activities as well as food and accommodations.

    Gonna go with ektess1 on this one. What you mean by best may be different than others.

    Well, if it's a free trip, I'm going to Marathon, FL. (Go there about twice a year)

    I'm tempted to say Palau, but if I could really do it for free, I'm sure there are "expedition" dives I might be more interested in. You know... some unspoiled pristine reef you basically can't get to commercially.
