Southeast Asia Liveaboards

Suitable for all divers

Information

 

Asia is a diverse and intriguing continent stretching from Europe and Africa in the west to the east coasts of Russia, China and Japan it is the largest continent and with its size comes diversity of landscapes, cultures, peoples and of course diving. Southeast Asia conjures up images of white sandy beaches, tropical vegetation and crystal clear, coral filled seas making it the perfect destination for those wanting to enjoy a beach holiday with some culture and amazing diving.

The majority of the diving in Southeast Asia is concentrated in the aptly named "Coral Triangle" which stretches from the southern tip of Japan to encompass the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Borneo, Papua and some of Micronesia and Polynesia with Indonesia at its epicentre. Some of the best diving is not easily accessible to day boats and better visited on a dedicated liveaboard. A Komodo, Philippine or Similan liveaboard trip will be an adventure not to forget with more dives, more critters, more sharks and more impressive diving then a resort based holiday.

There is a huge variety of marine life to find whether you like your sea life large or small you will not be disappointed diving in Asia. The diving is also very different from country to country and site to site from exciting drift dives in Komodo challenging even the most experienced diver to the calm critter spotting muck diving of the Lembeh Straits there is something for everyone. The reef life is in places truly spectacular with large predators and pelagics such as Whalesharks, Manta and Devil Rays, Sharks such as the Black Tip Reef, White Tip Reef, Grey Reef, Bamboo, Thresher, Scalloped Hammerhead and Silky, Barracuda, Tuna and Turtles always a possibility and for macro and muck lovers there is the chance to tick some amazing critters off your list including many species of Pygmy Seahorses, Shrimps of all shapes and sizes, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Octopus including the Mimic, Longarmed, Reef, Marbled, Wonderpus and Coconut, Pipefish of all descriptions and so much more with new species are being identified every year.
