Oh and the bell was ringing! This lot decided to celebrate the New Year for a second time… for most of the evening on the 1st. Many bottles, many rings and a few very sheepish looking ladies the next day. All good fun.

Something new for us at Asia Divers: We’re very excited to announce that we’ll now be teaching the PADI Basic Freediver and the PADI Freediver courses.

Freediving is about inward power, discipline and control. If you’ve always wanted to enter the underwater world quietly, on your own terms, staying as long as your breath allows, then freediving is for you.

Plus it’s a whole new beginning of really cool gear! For more information contact us at instructors@asiadivers.com and see course details on our Freediver Courses page

2019 Photo Workshop – Sneak Peek

Join us June 16-23, 2019 for our Photo workshop with Phil Rudin and Beth Watson. There will be hands on workshops on many different subjects including:

Black Backgrounds : The key is to block out all natural light so only the light reaching the camera sensor is produced by strobes or torches aimed at the subject. Camera settings, strobe positioning, composition and subject location all play a role in achieving a black background. Join us to learn more!

For details please see the 2019 Underwater Photography Workshop page, or contact  instructors@asiadivers.com for inquiries.
