Following numerous requests we have finally managed to get some photos and personal history of the Dive The World Dive Team.


No we didn't get professional models to stand in, we really do look that good in person.

Check us out here...

Destinations Feature - Sangalaki

Why is the word 'Sangalaki' not etched into the minds of the general diving public as one of the earth's finest locations for this sub-aquatic pursuit we so love? It should be.
