    This weekend being dragon boat festival a group of 6 of us are heading down to Green Island for hopefully 4 days of excellent diving.

    Weather is not looking to be perfect, but looking good never the less.. Hoping for 4 boat dives, and at least 6 shore dives.. water is a balmy 29C..

    I believe there will be a group of fun divers going to Fulong on Saturday (20/06/2015). I hope to be joining them myself, but I am not certain yet. The conditions have been absolutely fantastic over the past couple of weekends, and there has been an explosion of life all over the area. If anyone is ever keen to dive over the weekend please contact me. I am a PADI certified Dive Master, and know many of the sites quite well. I am always excited to dive with new divers who respect the reef and its inhabitants.

    Green Island was fantastic, got 12 dives in 6 of which were boat dives.

    No diving for me this weekend as off to the US.. I hear the Scubar has a good sized group heading out every weekend.

    I’m heading back to Taiwan this weekend, so sadly I will not be diving. Did manage to get a couple of cold dives in during my US trip.

    It is looking like going to be great weather up on the north coast, so if you wanting to get wet, head over to the ScuBar in Fulong as there is a group of fun divers heading out..

    Diving this Saturday? I am going to be heading out to ScuBar in Fulong to get a couple dives in that day. Not sure on which dive site yet, depends on the weather.

    Let me know here, or get in touch with Nigel.

    Great couple of dives last weekend at the wall. Not the greatest visibility, but lots of life.

    Obviously this weekend no one is going to be diving anywhere in Taiwan with this typhoon bearing down on us..

    Weather’s looking good this weekend. We’ll be heading out for a couple dives up north.

    It’s looking like the weekend after will have another typhoon rolling in so better try get your diving fix in this weekend. Anyone in the Taipei area drop us a line if you want to come along.

    A good sized group of divers were out last weekend. 3 groups of foreigners with 13 divers in total..

    This weekend is also shaping up to be a decent sized group.. let us know if you fancy coming out for a dive. Currently planning to dive Sunday, dive site is dependent on the weather.

    Last weekend we had 4 new divers join us, so a total of 6 divers, we headed out to MeiShan, visibility was not great, but the weather was nice. Water is still warm up north about 26C. For many it is getting to the end of the season, we weather permitting will be powering through..

    This weekend is a long holiday weekend, mid-autumn festival.. as is often the case with a long weekend, bad weather is forecast.. HoHum.. Saturday looks to be divable, but Sunday and Monday are out.

    We are going to be out in LongDong bay Saturday morning. Drop us a line if you are interested in coming along.

    Couple of other groups I know of doing fun dives this weekend, where you can pickup a dive include:

    Fun Dives with the Scubar
    Fun Dives with the Scuba Shop in Longdong
    Fun dives with Fun Divers TW in Longdong

    Looks like no diving up north this weekend.. 2M waves..

    Water temp is also just dipping below 25C on the surface, so a lot think it is cold. We did LongDong 2 weeks ago and water at depth was still 24C, that’s not cold in my books. I’m still rocking my 3mm with no vest/hood so it can’t really be that cold!

    Maybe its about time to start thinking about weekends down south in Kenting. This weekend it is divable there with 1M waves..

    Diving in XiaoLiu Qiu was great.

    This weekend got a chance to get out diving again up north. We went diving in LongDong. Only saw one other group of 3 divers in the water. First dive we stumbled upon another bluering octopus, that’s now the third i’ve seen in LongDong. My camera lens fogged up so i couldnt get any pictures.

    Water is starting to cool off, water temp at depth was 23°C
