Dive Timor boat – Shanti

Boat Dive in Timor Leste / East Timor. And keep your eyes open for whales and dolphins along the way. You never know what you will find.

Dive Timor has been running boat dives along the coast of Timor and to Atauro Island for over 17 years. Currently using our purpose built dive boat the “Shanti”.

Atauro Island is a well know destination to boat dive. Yet if you ask the resident dive crew what they consider the best site. The Pinnacle and Black Rock are always one of the top choices. You can check out a more complete list here

The Pinnacle dive site is one of Timor’s most well known and dived sites. Located only 5min boat ride from Dili harbour. This site is a favourite for Dive Timor crew as it never disappoints for action.

A great spot to see schooling barracuda and reef sharks. Recommended to be boat dived on a slight current! Normally ran as a single dive (sunset being the ideal time) or on the return coast trip to Black Rock.

Shanti boat gear

Set up gear on the Shanti

Black rock is a fantastic boat dive down the east coast to Timor. Located about 45min from Dili Harbour. Highlights of this dive include Greg reef sharks, possible dugong amazing reef and clear  water. Always best way to see whales and dolphins as the coastal trips spend more time along the direct path of these migrating creatures.

Dive Timor dive boat has tank racks for 20 tanks. Powered by a mercury 150hp. With plenty of room to set up and leave your gear set up. We are starting to run 3 dive boat trips that access some of the more remote destinations.
