Ahead of Blue Planet II Sovereign Luxury Travel picks its top holidays for discovering the sea.

The brand new series of the BBC’s iconic natural history programme, Blue Planet, is set to air next week (29 October 2017, BBC1 8pm), immersing viewers in the underwater realms of the world’s oceans like never before. Blue Planet II will be presented once again by renowned broadcaster and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, and comes to our screens 20 years after the original series aired.

With this in mind, Sovereign Luxury Travel has highlighted a selection of holidays best tailored towards discovering more about the oceans and the wildlife that live in them.
