Best diving in Asia & the Pacific

From India to The Philippines, from Japan to New Zealand, Asia and the Pacific Islands represent most of the dream destinations for most scuba divers. The Coral triangle formed by Malaysia, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and the Philippines has on display some of the most incredible marine biodiversity. In the heart of the Pacific, islands like Hawaii or French Polynesia offer pelagic action with sharks and manta rays.
