Well–travelled divers all acknowledge that the best diving in the world is found in the warm waters of tropical Asia.

No other region on earth presents such a rich variety of marine life, and none can boast as many different types of dive sites: tiny, isolated atolls, World War II wrecks draped in beautiful soft corals, shallow, bommie–filled fringing reefs and pinnacles, all swarming with fish and vibrant color.

Diving in Southeast Asia is a comprehensive diving guide covering Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Thailand. It presents in great detail the very best dive sites in the tropical western Pacific. Our seasoned diver–authors have an aggregate half-century of experience exploring these waters, and each site receives thorough coverage, including detailed maps, color photos, and a full description of access, conditions, and facilities.

This Southeast Asia diving guide features:
  • Practicalities: Detailed travel information for every budget, including accommodations, transportation, prices, seasons, and dive operators.
  • Information: Local history, diving lore, site conditions, and more than 50 maps.
  • Photography: More than 100 color photographs by top photographers.


About the Author:
Sarah Ann Wormald is from Ilkley, West Yorkshire in the UK where she previously worked as a Solicitor. Sarah began diving in 1999 in the Red Sea in Egypt, and after having dived in numerous destinations around the world, she moved to Indonesia in 2007. Since her move to Asia, Sarah has become an instructor who has shared her passion with hundreds of students through teaching them how to explore the underwater world. When Sarah is not teaching, she spends her time traveling Indonesia diving and photographing. From the outset of this project, Sarah's aim was to promote operators who dive safely and who protect and care for the reefs around them. Sarah's interests in Indonesian reefs, marine life, adventure and exploration led her to begin working on this book in 2013. Sarah currently lives and works full time in Indonesia.
