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!

Stephanies dive Experience! [ Friday, 11 March 2016 ]

I am here in Timor Leste for 10 months teaching and finally after five months I got the courage to find a place to get certified. It took me awhile to finish watching all the videos and take the tests since I could only come after school, but finally one day In January I sat by the edge of the pool with wide eyes scared and excited, trying to remember everything my instructor (Francisco) was telling me about the equipment, how to use it, the names for each.    

I remember realizing that I wasn't going to remember half of it and really hopping that I wasn't going to seriously injure myself because I forgot something important. Yellow Octopus, weight belt, Beer, Whiskey, Rum, And, Check... (But I don't drink ????) But he said I was ready even if I didn't feel ready.

So I got in my straight jacket (wet suit) and I followed the steps he did to prepare the equipment and put it on me. I fixed all the straps and clips and felt like I was going on an epic backpacking trip... Except I wouldn't make it very far. It's heavy stuff! And made the long dangerous journey from one end of the pool, down the steps around the pool and up the steps again and slowly... falling on the steps.. No just sitting down early. And there is where I first had the opportunity and amazing experience of being a fish.

Breathing underwater! I didn't enjoy it as much this first time since I was way too preoccupied in trying frantically to myself to remember everything he said and not forget important steps. Which I did when we were practicing doing an emergency exit pretending I needed help but I forgot to fill my bdc ( to fill my back pack with air and turn myself into a floating balloon) however that important park he had told me not to forget, had been forgotten so when I got to the top he quickly told me to fill it as he was holding me up ( since I'm heavier at the surface... That's correct right? ;P) so I put my mouth to manually blow into it and fill it up, except as I was pushing down on the button, I wasn't releasing, so the air I was blowing in was just going back out again! So yah Almost killed my instructor... Or at least gave him more work than he needed.

But amazingly and slightly to my dismay, Francisco said I was ready for my in the ocean dive even after receiving the title of hardest person to save ;P

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.
