Whichever of these incredible holidays you choose, you will undoubtedly be welcomed by some fabulously friendly and peaceful inhabitants who, despite being divided into 120 different ethnic groups and cultures, live in harmony with one another and provide some of the most wonderfully exotic local cuisine you could imagine. With all of this diversity on offer, the most difficult part of your Tanzanian holiday experience is likely to be deciding where to go!

Greg Carter

Owner, Greg Carter, grew up on the California coast where surfing was THE sport, Beachboys THE music, and scuba diving was an adventure for those few brave souls. Greg's hero was Mike Nelson, played by Lloyd Bridges, on the TV show "Sea Hunt." Some 40 plus years later, scuba diving has made great advances in equipment and safety, but the same passion for adventure still lives in our hearts.

Fast forward 20 years from the days of "Sea Hunt" and Greg found himself at Jack's Diving Locker, Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, signing up for an open water scuba class. Diving became a real life adventure and a Rescue Diver card. After 10 years of diving the Hawaiian waters, Greg returned to San Francisco and founded the Oceanic Resource Foundation to pursue marine conservation and education.

With some 25 years of scuba diving under his weight belt, Greg continues the adventure with Liquid Diving Adventures, to share exotic destinations near and far and meet creatures large and small. From tiny lettuce slugs to whale sharks, gentle giants of the sea, we are amazed by every dive and the variety of life in the oceans.
