Scuba diving bucket list

As usual I am back with another list – a scuba diving bucket list. This is the list that I wish to maintain so it can guide me through ticking off some of the awesome diving sites around the World. I am still very new to diving (even though I have done about 15 to 20 dives till now) and I wish to explore more of the under water world and stuff that lies under.

Note: This scuba diving bucket list will be updated and maintained constantly.
