The SCUBA Diving Directory

Our dive site's purpose is simple. To provide the most accurate and up-to-date information to our scuba divers on dive centers, dive resorts, scuba diving equipment and liveaboard charter companies in their dive locations. We have over 600 scuba diving locations displayed world wide and provide our divers  with a condensed list of the most reputable, safety conscious and friendly dive operators in the world, whether they be Padi or Naui affiliated, or a 5 star approved center. We limit each location to the most reputable and established dive companies in their area.

Our Directory's goal is to connect scuba divers with diving operators who want to make their clients experience as memorable, fun and safe as possible, whether they are in Europe, Asia, Australia, the United States or in Africa, the Caribbean or The Middle East. We want to be the most informative diving resource for both certified divers and for beginners looking to receive their Padi, Naui or BSAC  certifications.

In your listing, we want the most appealing information to describe your scuba business… like healthy text descriptions (over 2500 characters), multiple photos and videos, multiple direct hyperlinked access to your scuba diving website and/or networks, full Google map of your dive operation’s location and a "facts & features" box for you to Bullet items that make your dive sites or dive center special, like offering specific excursions like cave, wreck, reef diving. Our system/service is set up as our diving community. With our blog, forum, discussion areas and weekly e-mail updates to our followers, we keep them up-to-date on the dive industry and it’s changes, like dive news updates, new dive equipment and innovations as well as on our dive centers and resorts like yours.

Copy_of_Example_Ad

The Diving centers/resorts listings are per location, city or island. We also have the Liveaboards / charters, Gear & Equipment and Dive Specials sections, to advertise your special offers.

Our full size listings with complete Dive center and resort pics, text, map and hyperlinks makes our site visitors experience, a better one. Other scuba diving directory sites, allow only a small thumbnail size ad with your name, address and e-mail and usually have 40 to 50 listings per location. Our divers told us this was too many adverts with too little info. So we listened and created our version of what our divers wanted from your listing.

The full size listings in our directory are extremely search engine searchable, so many times divers can find you directly from the search engine, like Google…1 click from their search and their in front of your full ad... We have not found another diving directory that has this capability.

We are also very proud of our sites emphasis on a more social diving network. Our divers forum, where you can find answers to dive questions or answer other divers questions about locations, sites, weather and dive conditions. Also, Whether you twitterTwitter, or your on facebookFacebook, we know that you can keep up with current dive industry news, have your questions answered by knowledgeable divers in our industry and hopefully make a new diving buddy or 2…By the way, we love hearing the stories from you about meeting new friends and divers here.

If you feel that your dive operation fits within these criteria and you would like to be listed within our directory and diving network, whether you are a dive center, resort or liveaboard charter, just drop us an e-mail from the "contact us" page.

Cheers and always dive safe,
