Sipidan

   Malaysia  Celebes Sea
Sipidan and Mabul off the coast of Borneo, Malaysia was one of the best dive locations ever.
Where else can you get the big fish and macro life just 1 island away. When Sipidan had the resorts, you could literally walk out from your beach bungalow to the pristine Celebes Sea and experience white tip and Black tip sharks, loads or huge Hawsbill turtles, Humpheads, Barracuda and nearly every colorful sea life imaginable for a sunset dive.Or take the speed boat 5 minutes to the dive sites where wall dives and reefs and the open blue offer huge sharks, including scalloped hammerheads, nurse and thrasher sharks galore.

Then onto Mabul which is a 15 minute boat ride away, one can see Corocodile fish, large Frog fish in a multitude of colors, Mantis shrimp, ribbon eels, huge Giant Morays,and finally a Pygmy Seahorse that was so hideen in the fan coral that you almost needed a magnifying glass to see it. So beautiful and delicate, its hard to imagine how it ever survives. The list goes on and on.

Truly a Paradise for Divers!!

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.

Fish Reserve, RAF Akrotiri

   Cyprus  Mediterranean Sea
The site is protected by the local RAF base, who have also provided much of the artificial reef, including a helicopter and fire engine. Tight control of access so not suitable for casual attendance - you need to get there via a local dive operation who will book the time slot.

Once there, just enjoy! A very easy dive - my wife had just completed her Open Water - but an incredable amount of fish, all very interested in people. Very shallow - max 6m/20ft depth so non-divers could even snorkel there, but check with the dive operators first. Photo opportunities beyond compare, and youll run out of time before you run out of air at those depths!

Dwejra Gozo

   Malta  Mediterranean Sea
Dwejra has about 4 dive sites and a multitude of possibile dives. You can start from the inland sea and swim out through a tunnel, start from the Blue hole and then swim out. You can also opt for a boat dive to Crocodile rock where depths of 40m are easily reached. The swim out of the tunnel has some spectacular photographic opportunities, and it was this site that encouraged me to take up underwater photography. There is also the Coral Garden, with some lovely colours. There is also a large cave to the right of the inland sea, but this should be undertaken as a boat dive as there is a long swim.

Its one of the few place in the Maltese archipelago where one can see large groupers.

One of the main attractions of this area is the colour of the sea. The blue here is like nowhere else in Malta or Gozo.

This area is very popular with tourists all year round.

I hope more people visit the islands to see our extensive heritage, the oldest erect building in the world is in Malta, and our clear blue waters with many wrecks and sites to visit.

Look for Malta and diving on the internet, and you will find some interesting pictures of what is available in Malta.

Knutshaug, Hitra

   Norway  Atlantic
TURUT is not a large commercial scuba related company, but a happy couple with a keen interest in scuba diving who can take you on a very personal vacation with a group of socially aware people!

We arrange week long scuba trips to the island Hitra several times a year. We stay in comfortable appartements at Knutshaug Fishing Resort on Dolmøy, and we run boat dives 3 times a day. One day we go onboard a larger boat for a 10 hour journey through the skerries of Mausund and Sula. Hitra offers tremendous cold water UW-fauna, excillarating drift dives through narrow sounds, wrecks, and UW-hunting usually leading to food on the table.
