Yellow Reef, Desecheo Island

   Puerto Rico  Caribbean Sea
Taino Divers in Rincon, PR will take you out to the island for the best kept secret in the Caribbean. It takes about 45 minutes to get there & coming back can be rough & wet but thats part of the fun. Yellow Reef is on the North side & cant be dived sometimes but the South side is good as well. Also Dos Pesones is a killer dive to around 95 feet, it means two nipples.
Rincon is a funky little surfer town with a number of American expats. It is on the West coast & about 2.5 hours from San Juan.
Mona Island is another option in the Summer, it is about 40 miles off Rincon. This is a multi-day diving/camping trip. Highly recommended but you gotta be able to rough it.
The Humpbacks come through from Jan. to March & also Pilot Whales. Late Feb. is best time to see them.
Check it out for a cheap dive vacation w/ lots of other things to do.

Bunaken National Park

   Indonesia  Asian Sea
The waters of Bunaken National Marine Park are extremely deep (1566 m in Manado Bay), clear (up to 35-40 m visibility), refreshing in temperature (27-29 C) and harbor some of the highest levels of biodiversity in the world. Pick any of group of interest - corals, fish, echinoderms or sponges - and the number of families, genera or species is bound to be astonishingly high. For example, 7 of the 8 species of giant clams that occur in the world, occur in Bunaken. The park has around 70 genera of corals compare this to a mere 10 in Hawaii. Although the exact number of fish species is unknown, it may be slightly higher than in the Philippines, where 2,500 species, or nearly 70 of all fish species known to the Indo-western Pacific, are found.
Oceanic currents may explain, in part, why Bunaken National Marine Park is such a treasure trove of biodiversity. Northeasternly currents generally sweep through the park but abundant counter currents and gyros related to lunar cycles are believed to be a trap for free swimming larvae. This is particularly true on the south side of the crescent-shaped Bunaken Island, lying in the heart of the park. A snorkler or diver in the vicinity of Lekuan or Fukui may spot over 33 species of butterfly fish and numerous types of groupers, damsels, wrasses and gobies. The gobies, smallish fish with bulging eyes and modified fins that allow them to attach to hard surfaces, are the most diverse but least known group of fish in the park.
Biologists believe that the abundance of hard corals is crucial in maintaining the high levels of diversity in the park. Hard corals are the architects of the reefs, without them, numerous marine organisms would be homeless and hungry. Many species of fish are closely associated with particular types of corals (folious, branching, massives, etc.) for shelter and egg-laying. Others, like the enormous Bumphead Parrotfish, Balbometopon muricatum, are coralivores and depend on hard corals for their sustenance. Bony mouth parts fused into an impressive beak allow these gregarious fish to crunch corals like roasted peanuts.
Good dive site for all divers. Wall dives and shallow reefs with good visibility of 20-30m. Coelacanths are found here!

Diver's Dream

   Trinidad and Tobago
We were diving for two weeks every single day, did dives on both ends of the island, but, couldn't get enough of Diver's Dream, we dove with Manta Dive on Pigeon Point Road, and they were just fantastic!! Very friendly and well organized... I prefer diving on the southern end, off Crown Point, however.

Bali Dived Site In General

   Indonesia  Indian Ocean
----- SCUBA Dive In Resort Bali Indonesia Online Information -----

Geography and Climate
The island of Bali was shaped by the action of volcanoes, which produced the rich, black soils that nourish Bali's beautiful and productive rice paddies.
Just 8-9 south of the equator, Bali is always warm-a mean 27.2 C, although the highlands are about 6 C cooler. Humidity is an almost constant 75 persent. Most of Bali's annual 2,500-3,000 millimeters of rain falls from November through March.

Bali's great strength is that it is NOT isolated. The island's reefs are ideally positioned to recieve a cosmopolitan assortment of plankton and juvenile animals from the Indonesia Throughflow, a massive flow of water that passes from the Pacific to the Indian Ocean. Because of this combination, perhaps Bali is just to familiar to be considered a great diving area.

Dive Sites
There are five main areas for diving in Bali, working counter clockwise around the island from the airport in the south: Nusa Dua and Sanur; Nusa Penida; Candi Dasa (Padang Bai, Gili Mimpang, Gili Tepekong); Amed/Cemeluk and Tulamben; Pemutaran, Menjangan and Gilimanuk ( Secret Bay). Each area offers dive locations for novice, intermediate and advanced divers. At most sites, divers can plan a dive to match their degree of experience, and dives can be made around the year.

Depth of dives
The best diving lies between 5 and 40 meters.

Marine Life
The varied inhabitants of Bali's reefs. " different fields, different grasshoppers."

Variable, 5-15 m, exceeds 30 m.

Water Temperature
Normally 26 - 27 C (78 - 80 F). During July and August, the temperature drops to 21 C (70 F)

High seasons
July-August and around Christmas and New Year.

The Liberty Wreck 120 meters long Tulamben,
Wooden anker wreck, cave and craggy wall Menjangan,
Pelagics, and between the months of August - November Mola-Mola (Sunfish) at Nusa Penida,
Rare critters muck diving at Secret Bay/Gilimanuk
Canyon at Gili Tepekong/Cand Dasa

Very tricky current, strong surge, uncomfortably cold in some dive sites.

The Aquarium, Dhofar

   Oman  Indian Ocean
I have been diving i Oman for a few years now, both North and South, but my favourite dive will always be the aquarium. I have always tried to end the weekends diving with a visit to the aquarium, its an easy shore dive, entering in a small rocky gully sinking down onto table coral where we find all sorts of small marine life, usually lobsters hiding in the coral and puffer fish hanging around. we then make our way across the bay to the aquarium itself.It starts off with a small rocky reef, loads of small fish, clown fish in their anemones, scorpion fish spread around, you can usually see rays and turtles here. moving towards the mouth of the bay you pass through the main coral which is covered with small marine life and for a while we had our own nurse shark, which hid amongst the coral, then pass on to the wall keeping an eye out for lion fish, stingrays normally settled on the bottom, depending on air consumption you can exit the bay to check out bigger reefs, but then turn around to pass back through the bay again, I will always love this dive. Thi is a very good dive site to train on, the middle of the bay has a flat bottom with sand, after carrying out your training you can show students lots of life and it can all be contained withing the bay.
Only problem with the site is it is 80 km from Salalah, the nearest big town and we always took all our own equipment and compressors, camping on the beach for weekends and longer when there are holidays.
The dive is also a good snorkelling site.

Chesil Beach

   United Kingdom  Atlantic
A bit of a scramble over large shingle wherever you get in. Most divers prefer the shelter at the Portland end. The beach slope quickly (making it tricky to get back onto when you're tired at the end of a dive and the swell pulls you back. It's a bit indignified crawling out on your kneees but at least you know that everyone who has tried managed it!
The marine life ranges from dogfish (yes, they're sharks) to dustbin sized Rhizostoma Pulmo Jellyfish.
There are wrecks too. Park in the Portland rd big car park.
Excellent range of British marine life, wreck, what more do you want!
