Scuba Diving Timor Leste | PADI 5 Star IDC Centre East Timor


Dive Timor Lorosae is Timor Leste's premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre offering a full range of friendly and professional PADI dive courses and daily diving trips on the beautiful tropical coral reefs that surround Timor Leste!

Why dive Timor Leste? - As the newest country in Asia, Timor Leste has easy access to some of the most recently discovered and least explored diving in the region! Making up the southern section of the Coral Triangle, Timor is home to a massive diversity of coral and fish species.

The best thing is that the fringing reef across the northern coast is easily accessible from the shore often beginning only a few meters from the water’s edge. Dolphins call the Timorese waters home as well as migrating whales for several months of the year. Diving in Timor Leste gives you a chance to see everything from exciting Hammerhead Sharks and endangered Dugongs to interesting critters like Frogfish and Ghost Pipefish!

DTL's range of services includes:

Why dive with DTL? - Dive Timor Lorosae (DTL) was established in 2002 by Mark Mialszygrosz. After traveling, exploring and scuba diving the country since 2000 he set up Timor's first PADI dive centre and has strived to set and maintain the standard for scuba dive travel, scuba dive training and scuba dive tourism within Timor Leste.

Even though DTL has now grown to become a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre, we still pride ourselves on providing a friendly and personable service, while providing safe quality diver training at all levels.

Looking for a Hotel in Timor? - DTL also has our own Hotel/Apartment accommodation, Guest House accommodation and Backpacker accommodation. All with free internet and western modern facilities and all located in central Dili on the beach front!

Get in contact with us now to book your scuba course, dive trips or accommodation! info@divetimor.com

Atauro Island [ Monday, 11 January 2016 ]

Atauro Island 25km north of Dili is a small island of volcanic origin lying between the Indonesian islands of Alor and Wetar. Rugged and remote, the Island has always been sparsely inhabited and is a sought after destination for island eco adventures and offers spectacular diving and snorkelling. The waters around Atauro are clear all year round, due to the absence of large rivers flushing sediment runoff during the wet season.

Very deep water channels also surround the Island and the channel between Dili and Atauro is 3000 metres deep. This channel also hosts what is reported to be the largest seasonal migration of whales moving between the Indian and Pacific Oceans each year between October and December. This includes populations of short finned pilot whales, blue whales, beaked whales, melon headed whales and seven dolphin species.

Dive Timor Lorasae boat trips regularly encounter pods of whales and dolphins including the gargantuan blue whale, and large pods of pilot whales sometimes over a hundred in size. Dive sites surrounding Atauro include spectacular wall drop offs, coral garden descending slopes, fringing coastal reefs and outer reefs. Occasionally spotted are hammerhead sharks and manta rays.

Big Fish is a point on the South west corner of the island. At this particular location strong currents swirl and eddy around an area of shallow reef that drops away to deep water. Schools of big pelagic fish as well as various sharks can be spotted here. The strong currents can vary and although attract big fish can also make for a challenging dive site.

Join us any time on our Dive Trips To Atauro Island.

Check out The Hummingfish Foundation's new website. The Hummingfish Foundation, which is essentially an environmental protection organization is designed to protect the earth's unspoiled natural environments by "adding value to nature" itself through sustainable community-based nature tourism (diving, bird watching, trekking, etc).

About Indopacificimages.com Underwater photographer and writer Don Silcock is a big fan of Timor Leste and his website is a great place to find an interesting explanation of why the scuba diving is so good plus great descriptions of some of the best dive sites and superb image galleries of what you will see there.
