Asia Dive Site
We are redesigning Asia Dive Site and look forward to bringing you a new look soon!
the concept ...
Our aim is to put together the largest online collection of dive site information for the Asian region. This resource is being developed by divers for divers, we are still adding dive sites to our listings so if what you are looking for isn't online yet be sure to check back frequently or let us know. At the moment we cover Thailand, Burma, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and the Maldives dive sites in detail. We will be expanding this site to include Korea, Japan, and the Andamans as soon as we can and are currently adding dive sites of Micronesia
For some great easy access diving in crystal clear waters now would be the time to head over the Puerto Galera in the Philippines. Sabang is the hotspot where you can literally dive off the beach and find all types of dive sites from reefs to wrecks and a wide variety of marine life. Macro fans won't be dissapointed as the area is a haven for nudibranchs and other critters, big fish freaks can also get their fill on some of the deeper dives and drifts out at Verde Island.
The coral reefs of Southeast Asia are said by conservationists to be the most important in the world as they are among the most diverse and productive communities on the Earth. Of the 800 different species of coral known to science, three-quarters are found in Asian waters. A rich marine ecosystem stretching over thousands of kilometers and crossing many countries makes this region the best on the planet for the scuba enthusiast.
