Dive 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!
