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

Plastic in the Oceans [ Thursday, 21 April 2016 ]

This is a worldwide problem now; plastic is everywhere and for most of the countries, even the most developed ones, not properly recycled.

Today exist 6 different garbage patches all over the world, 3 in the Pacific, 2 in the Atlantic and 1 in the Indian Ocean. They formed gradually as an accumulation of marine debris gathered by oceanic currents. Scientific data estimate than 80% is coming from land sources and 20% from ships.

The biggest of those is the north Great Pacific garbage patch also called The Pacific Trash Vortex. His size is in average 460 times the size of East Timor, imagine that!

The photo-degradation of the plastics is the danger as the plastic will transform in smaller and smaller pieces down to his molecular level and can be then ingested by marine organisms, so entering the food chain.

The effect on wildlife animals and humans are indeed a very big concern. Beside the fact that, of course, small pieces of plastic are absorbed by more than 267 animal species, the microscopic level of absorption is the one that affect humans. Floating debris absorb carcinogen pollutants from sea water who then are eaten by jellyfish or others near surface animals that are themselves eaten by larger fish whose ended up in our meals. Sad story!!!!

For environmental and health reasons, we all should do some clean up somehow, some day in our life. Here in East Timor we can see that it is a major problem when we look around us. The solution is not necessarily a group thing but more at individual level.

It is just hope to us to be part of it!

Dive Timor Lorosae organise every Mondays beach cleanup in Tasi Tolu for the wellness of everything and everybody on this planet.

Just come and join us!

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.
