The question of what the top 10 scuba diving movies are is one that we have been debating loads recently in our after-dive gatherings.
The question of whether a movie inspired us to want to take up scuba diving in the first place, to the movie that best displays the underwater world, as well as those movies that include scuba diving and should be included is one that has divided opinion amongst the divers at Ocean Tribe.
So we have made it our mission to ask divers around the world what movie which includes scuba diving as a major plot part is the best and merits a place on the top 10 scuba diving movies?
From our discussions we have put together a list of the top 10 scuba diving movies below and included trailers for you to jog your memory or inspire you to watch them. If you have any movies that you think should be added to the list or replace ones currently on there then we would love to hear them.
