Bunakan - Manado

   Indonesia
December 2003, just before Christmas , visited Manado- Indonesia the 2nd time with a group of 10 . Weather was bad, it was wet almost all day, no sun at all, just feel cold and dont like diving.

LUckily , i try not to miss any dive including one of the wall dive ..... water condition was bad, i cant see far, suddenly, an ugly big head fish (?) without body come toward me, i am fighten as i am unable to confirm what is that , i keep on point toward the direction and do not go near, immediately, my instructor -JACK fry there...... but this big ugly thing dont like him and other memeber therefore turn away. Insturctor JACK was unable to go after him and turn back and talk to me very loud (this is the first time after 90 dive that some one talk to me in the water ) and say SUN FISH , he also use his finger to write on his hand SUN and he jsut look crazy. By then, i known i had see SUN FISH ( MOLAMOLA) with my own eyes.

After the dive, a check with the dive master who had dive 1500 times in the same dive site, he confirm that this was his 2nd time see the sun fish and a much bigger one.




Jack was much more than happy as he had traveled to Bali-Indonesia to see Sun Fish, but with no result. But this dive he see it with a group of 10, all group member witness it but none of us taken the pictures .

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.

Saipan Grotto

   Northern Mariana Islands  Pacific
A beautiful sunken pool connected to the ocean by underwater passages. The sunlight shining on the ocean outside the cave gives the water its amazing deep blue color with typical visability of 100 plus feet. The Saipan Grotto is one of Saipan's best diving spots. Considered by many as one of the best shore cavern dives in the world, this must do dive site in Saipan is sure to amaze you.
After entering the water through a large limestone hole, divers realize they are in a huge cavern. From here, there are three different exit holes to the sea. Once outside, there are beautiful walls, swim-throughs, and caves to explore. Turtles, sharks, and wrasse, are some of the many types of sea life to be seen at this magnificent dive site.

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."

Visibility
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.

Highlights
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

Other
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!

Ho Bi Hu (Kenting)

   Taiwan  East China Sea
The Southern tip of Taiwan is home to a variety of easily accessible dive sites. One of our favorite ones is located just outside of the beach town of Kenting. Ho Bi Hu, is located (often the butt of jokes) quite near to a nuclear power station. It is sheltered by a breakwater on one side and protective shoreline on the other making something of a small bay. The put-in point is accessible by car and deep channels eroded into the dead coral shore make it fairly easy to get to during both high and low tide. The water is warm and the visibility is very good during the winter months however strong winds can bluster creating side-shore surface currents. Most times however, the bay is fairly calm. The channels get deeper and deeper until they drop over a wall to about 10 meters. Divers can then swim along sandy bottoms inbetween widely spaced balmies. Lots of good soft corals in abundance. Plenty of Angel Fish, Bat Fish, Trigger fish, Wrasses and smaller types. Lion fish are also very common here. I have seen large octopus and cuttle fish in this area from time to time.

Ho Bi Hu is a very good introduction to diving in Southern Taiwan although it can be very crowded from time to time, especially in the summer and spring. Anoyances include large parties of snorklers who appear in the spring and summer who cannot swim but are issued life jackets and cling to large floating devices issued by tour companies.

We typically use Ho Bi Hu for Open Water Dives #3 and #4 when teaching students.

If you would like to find out more about dives sites in Southern Taiwan and elsewhere in the country or perhaps you are visiting Taiwan and would like to do some fun dives, or perhaps you live and work in Taiwan and you would like take some PADI Scuba Diving courses, please contact us.

This is one of main dive locations in jeddah located in shores. It has nice facilities, instructors and administration. Fishing in not allowed in this beach to preserve the wild life thats why you can see many types of lifes including the huge ones.

The beach is a good place fotr non-Saudi citizen (it is ment for non saudi) originally. but the only way for a saudi to get in is to be a diver or having a diving course.

Antarctica

   Antarctica  Antarctic (Southern Ocean)
Breathless takes on a new meaning with this truly once in a lifetime expedition -after my last voyage in 2003, I decide to arrange for a special photographic trip, sort of an Antarctica Unplugged – the best of our last frontier in one trip. Short of chartering our own ocean going vessel, we are going to command our own inflatable on all excursions – this way we can explore at our own pace and most importantly we aim to max out photographic opportunities. Only 10 people in my group. Imagine thousands of King penguins, Rockhopper, Magellanic, Chin straps, Gentoo King, Adelie and Macaroni penguins all in one trip. Of course there will be the Elephant seals, Leopard seals, Crab eaters, Weddels and most often we will cruise along side humpback whales. Though we will not be on scuba, we be looking out for opportunities to snorkel with the seals and to do some over and under images of ice bergs.

Raja Ampat

   Indonesia
Supported by scientific facts, Raja Ampat is the richest reefs system in the world. After two scientific surveys were conducted Conservation International and The Nature Conservancy in 2001 and 2002 respectively, coral expert John Vernon, Raja Ampat declared that Raja Ampat had a higher density of species than anywhere else in the world. The world’s top ichthyologist Dr. Gerry Allen broke his own record twice in Raja Ampat for number of species recorded on a single dive. Before diving in the Raja Ampat area his record was 204 different species recorded in Milne Bay in Papua New Guinea. In 2001, he documented 283 species of coral fish at Cape Kri. Then, during the 2002 near the island of Kofiau, he set a new personal record by documenting 284 species during one dive. This is the coral reefs final frontier. I have been there 4 times and I am going back in 2005 – this time with the a very special guest and a very special boat – the MV Pelagian; undoubtedly one of the best live-aboard in the world

Monterey, California

Monterey California.

Perfect diving for everybody. The water is a bit cold so 2 layers of 7mm or a dry-suit is needed. The viz can range between non or 50 ...

There are plenty of sites for all level of divers, Breakwater is perfect for first-timers and night dives. Monastary beach is more for the experienced divers, watch the beach entry because it can be quite tricky.

Diveshops, daytrips (boat) are available.

The dives are full of sea-lions, lingcod, cabezon, kelp .. etc etc
