Worldwide tips

DSC_4312We have dived and worked at all the destination below, we will be pleased to assist you if you have any requests regarding these destinations.

The Red Sea

From Sharm El Sheik, Hurghada, Dahab and Sudan our favourite spot for diving is El Queseir. Great shore dives and also jeep safaris. Not crowed by divers and beautiful healthy reefs.

Maldives

It took us many dives to finally see our first whale shark. At the right season you’re guaranteed to see whale sharks and manta rays. The Maldives is the perfect destination for big fish lovers.

Fiji

DSC_4121Holds some amazing dive sites depending on which island you dive, some dive sites can be easily dived and some others like the great wall can be a challenge at times. Good coral reefs and fish life, You must try the cava…

Australia

We dived and worked most of the Great barrier reef and the Coral Sea but just out of Townsville there is a wreck called the Yongala, which is our favorite site of the whole barrier reef. You can’t really make out it is a ship anymore as it is incrusted with life. A good night dive as well. Best way to see the barrier reef is to take a liveaboard.

Indonesia

From Bali to Papua through to Manado and Lembeh, Indonesia holds some of the best diving in the world. West Papua is probably one of the last frontier destination with untouched reefs, many species of fishes, rare creatures and aircraft wrecks. You should try and visit before it is too late. As we love small and bizarre creatures we enjoy our time in Lembeh strait where you will get plenty of frog fishes, leaf fishes, sea horses, etc…

DSC_4582If you are looking for very healthy coral reefs and 5* service resort, Wakatobi (Tukang besi) will be your perfect diving spot.

In Bali, we have dived all over the island. Our favorite sites are Tulamben area which offer great shore dives. Padangbai, a little village on the coast also has some very nice critter diving.

Malaysia

Malaysia is deeply in our hearts, we were running a busy dive school on the island of Tioman covered by 80% virgin rainforest. This island is off the east coast of the Malaysia Peninsular. There are very healthy coral reefs, good fish life and nudibranchs, the dive sites are suitable for most level of divers. Not far from Tioman the 2nd world war shipwrecks “Prince Of Whales” and “Repulse” can be reached by the Technical Divers.
On Borneo, we recommend Kapalai, a beautiful water village and very well organised diving centre with a great house reef full of surprises especially for the macro! Sipadan and Mabul are just next door to it.

Philippines

Has some wonderful diving depending what you want to see. Bohol has great reefs. In the south of the Philippines Palawan, if you’re lucky you can spot dugongs. And Coron for wrecks, But our favourite dives were Anilao located south of Luzon island good for macro.

Mexico

Mexico has some great dive sites from the island of Isola Mujeres where you can spot whale sharks and sail fish in right season to some great cave diving in the Cenotes.
