Awesome dive conditions!

Raja Noi’s South Tip offered us on August 30th one of the best dives ever. Perfect surface conditions, an estimated 50 Meter visibility, a huge School of uncountable Barracudas and much more! What a dive! Who says the diving in Phuket’s green season is not worth getting wet?

Ship Yard Stories

| Comments (0)
Done! After almost two month in the ship yard your M/V Dive Asia II looks nicer than ever before. Besides the “normal annual maintenance” we focused on refurnishing the Lounge downstairs and on a bigger kitchen. You can enjoy now great underwater footage on a Big Screen, listen to good Music provided by a Surround Stereo System, identify with the help of our extensive Marine Life Library what you just have seen beneath the surface and study the original Royal Thai Navy Chart "308"  for directions to Phuket’s best local dive sites.  Come join us for some good day trips and have a look!

Shark Savers

| Comments (0)
Dive Asia became a proud Supporter of Shark Savers today.  Join and sign the petitions too.

Shark Savers was founded in 2007 by six long-time divers driven by a shared passion and fueled by decades of business, marketing and media expertise. As divers, we felt an emotional connection to the oceans and in particular, sharks. And, we all witnessed what we came to love begin to disappear. We realized we had to take action. Today, over 10,000 members from 99 nations share that sense of urgency.

We focus on action and results, designing our programs to result in saving the lives of sharks. By leveraging professional experience and expertise, Shark Savers brings the issue to the masses in many compelling forms, motivating people to stop consuming sharks, serving as the voice for a maligned species, and focusing their attention on locations where sharks need to be protected.

Shark Savers enables people to make a difference and take a stand in their home, their local businesses, and throughout shark hot spots all over the world.
