Asia

Scuba diving in Asia can take you to areas that host a greater variety of marine life than anywhere else on earth. You can dive in the South China Sea, the Pacific Ocean and the Indian Ocean, or submerge in the area where these waters mix to form the epicenter of biodiversity – The Coral Triangle. Wreck diving on historic shipwrecks, wall diving on offshore pinnacles from a liveaboard or shore diving on a house reef are all possibilities when diving in Asia. The diving choices are as vast and exciting as the countries in this region.
