Scuba Diver and Corals

Explore Asia with BRAVE Diving

"Not just great diving, a great adventure"

 About Us

We approach crafting a diving adventure differently.

We remember when we started traveling on our own to Asia. So many lessons learned the hard way, and the expensive way. But what discoveries we made! On land there were elephants, monkeys and other exotic fauna. We explored beaches, mountains, jungles, ancient temples. We ate foods we never imagined we would and found cultures that were welcoming, complex and deep. 

Underwater we were treated to world class diving. Everything from the smallest nudibranch to mantas and whale sharks was waiting for us among the beautiful hard and soft corals. Everyone remembers their first dive at Richelieu Rock or Koh Bon or the USAT Liberty wreck. Simply put, Thailand and Indonesia/Bali offer the best combinations of diving and cultural activities available to todays adventure diver.

That's why we started BRAVE Diving, to bring you in touch and closer than you could otherwise get to places and diving we love so much and know so well. We want you to feel the way we do, to take you there. Whether you are an individual, dive group, or local dive shop we can give you the trip of a lifetime that you will remember forever.

. We are travel experts. We are not buying “packages”, we are putting together expeditions. We are not looking for the cheapest trips we can get, we are looking for the best diving and the best experience for you.

And one of us will be there with you, on the ground, on the boat, and in the water, to ensure you have the best experience possible.

"We offer adventure. We think that’s what people are looking for, a break from their ordinary. That’s why people dive, that’s why people travel and that’s why we exist.   I have over 300 dives in Thailand alone. I’ve been diving in Thailand since 2005. We know where all the best places and activities are. I’ve successfully led trips there before. 


We take the worry out of your vacation by arranging and planning all aspects of your adventure. All you have to do is show up and have fun!"
