Finding Dory – the sequel to Pixar's Finding Nemo - is set to be this summer's blockbuster animated film, following the underwater adventures of forgetful fish, Dory (voiced by Ellen De Generes) and her amphibian pals. With a UK release date of 29 July (perfect timing for the school summer holidays) and a voiceover cast that includes Hollywood big hitters Idris Elba, Michael Sheen, Dominic West and Diane Keaton, Finding Dory is set to make the underwater world a big draw for summer 2016. Those looking for aquatic adventures beyond the bath tub can dive in with Dory, Nemo and their chums on one of several trips from Dive Worldwide, the leading specialists in scuba diving breaks.
Little ones need not miss out as children as young as 10 years can safely learn to dive, discovering marine life on a host of family-friendly trips, all using professional, experienced local operators handpicked by Dive Worldwide. It doesn't matter if some of the party don't dive since most destinations have snorkelling opportunities and topside attractions too. Accommodation-wise, affordable villas or apartments help keep a lid on costs and each trip can be tailored to suit individual budgets and requirements. Big and small kids alike who are inspired by the film can explore the diverse oceanic world of healthy coral and critter paradise this summer, following in the wake of the characters Dory, Nemo, Hank, Destiny and Deb.
