The global diving tourism market is poised to reach a valuation of US$ 2,940 Million in 2022. Overall sales are projected to increase at a 6.0% CAGR, surpassing US$ 5,281 Million by 2032.

Water adventure tourism, often known as water-based tourism, is becoming increasingly popular across the globe. Technological developments and advancements in water sports equipment have a greater impact on individual safety, resulting in increasing involvement in water sports, broadening the scope of water adventure sports, and so benefiting the water adventure tourist sector.

Skilled professionals and instructors are on hand to assist and guide tourists, as well as teach knowledge and technical know-how on how to safely utilize underwater equipment (scuba diving and deep-sea diving).

The water adventure tourism industry has been able to reach out to individuals all around the world thanks to increased social media and advertising. Around 10-15% of international and 6-8 percent of domestic recreational dive & snorkelling visitors participate in dive training courses. One of the primary factors driving the industry is the availability of courses ranging from a basic introductory course to highly specialised advanced courses.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Diving Tourism Market

The desire for diving tourism has been decreased as a result of global shutdown restrictions. According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, international tourist visits (overnight visitors) decreased by 70% from January to August 2020, compared to the previous year (UNWTO).

Dive facilities in cities witnessed a drop in retail sales as well as earnings from dive trips and classes for divers. Dive shops on the islands have lost over half of their trading season, which spans from March to October.

However, with resumption of diving and training programmes, the number of divers and dive students are predicted to increase. This is expected to propel the growth in the market over the forecast period.
