Dive Areas in Asia and the Galapagos

I dive and travel mostly in Southeast Asia. I offer you detailed descriptions of dive sites in certain areas in Southeast Asia including maps, travel reports and special fact sheets for each region (information about dive operators, liveaboards, dive conditions and climate and where to find a recompression chamber in the vicinity).

Remarks

Please notice that some of my texts (and maps) about dive sites have been copied and used (without my permission) by dive operators for their own websites. They have the old version - on my website though you will get the newest information! I write about where you find great diving, but also about what I didn't like! Look at my policy about reports about dive areas for more information.
