    Seraya Secret

    This is macro heaven near the more famous wreck in Tulamben. You can find almost every small thing there is to see in the ocean on this one site. Which one do you like better, the wreck or the critters?

    Dos Ojos

    Diving in a cenote is something completely different from the other dive sites here. It is almost like cave diving in crystal clear water. The visibility can be up to 100 meters. Cenote Dos Ojos has 2 separate dives; the Barbie line and the Bat Cave line.

    Police Pier - Lembeh Strait

    Lembeh is world famous for its macro life and the Police Pier might be its best dive site. Expect macro life in huge quantities.

    Shark and Yolanda Reefs

    Located at the Ras Mohammed National Park in the Northern Red Sea of Egypt. A reef dive, but maybe not the classic reef dive, because it also contains a wreck and a wall. What more can you ask for.

    USAT Liberty

    The 125 meter (411 ft 6 in) USAT Liberty was a United States marine cargo ship that beached on the island of Bali after being torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. In 1963 a volcanic eruption moved the ship off the beach to become one of the most dived sites in the world.

    The SS Yongala Wreck is one best wreck dives in the world, that's for sure. But is it the best dive in the world?

    The wreck is 110m long and sunk near Cape Bowling Green, Queensland, Australia in 1911 during a cyclone. It was re-discovered in 1958 and is now the most famous dive site in Australia.

    Muck diving in one of the top macro diving places in the world; Anilao in the Philippines. Some say it is even better than Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. What do you think?

    Richelieu Rock

    The most famous dive site in the Andaman Sea and Surin National Marine Park discovered by Jacques Cousteau.

    It is a typical liveaboard dive site, as it is too far off the coast to be reached by a normal dive boat on a day trip. 

    Go to Andaman Sea
