Dili Dive Operator – DiveTimor.com

In our opinion, the best and by far the most reliable dive operator in Dili is Dive Timor Lorosae.
Dive Timor Lorosae is Timor Leste’s PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Center offering a full wide range of expert PADI dive courses and daily excursions on the lovely tropical coral reefs that encompass East Timor!
Why go to East Timor to dive? – As the youngest nation in Asia, East Timor has simple access to probably the most untouched and uncovered diving sites! Making up the southern segment of the Coral Triangle, East Timor is home to huge variety of coral and fish species. Why dive with DTL? – Dive Timor Lorosae (DTL) was created in 2002 by Mark Mialszygrosz. In the wake of traveling, investigating and scuba diving the nation since 2000 he set up Timor’s first PADI center and has strived to set and keep up the standard for scuba dive travel, scuba jump training and scuba dive tourism in East Timor.

Author’s Note: we are currently working in making this article more complete by providing a better list of many more Diving Operators in Timor, if you have any suggestions please send us an email to [email protected]

  1. For the record there are actually two other dive companies in Timor-Leste, it is good to have choice. Compass Charters & Ocean Adventures and Aquatica Dive Resort – Timor Leste are the other two companies

  2. The comment 'the best and by far the most reliable dive operator is…..' is totally subjective without a review of the other dive operators here. What do you base that comment on?

  3. Wayne Lovell Thanks for you feedback!!! Like Shirley Carlos said "it is good to have choice" and we have send an email to both Compass Charters & Ocean Adventures and Aquatica Dive Resort to have more information about Diving Operators in Timor Leste but we did not get any response.
    If you know someone in the other operators just ask them to send us email to [email protected]

  4. Visit East Timor Its not about sending them an email. They would obviously say they were the best. Its about 'have you dived with them?
    If you havn't, then you cannot say that Dive Timor is the best. End of.

  5. Wayne Lovell Totally get your point. We will improve our articles in order to make them fair for everyone. Be mindful that our opinion is defo based on local experience. We are currently looking at ways to integrate review systems such as TripAdvisor in our site in order to ensure that our recommendations are based on crowdsourcing of information and not just our opinion (which also matters to us 🙂 That being said, please do send us an email with your point of view, hopefully we will be able to integrate it here! Stay tuned to see this article and our site evolve in the next couple of weeks (I've made a small tweak to the article meanwhile) and always let us know if you feel our semantics are unfair! Thanks for your feedback!
