Yongala: The Best Dive

Townsville, Australia

Diving has been my passion and it brings me so much happiness watching the underwater beauty. I've always been fascinated with shipwrecks as well, and stimulates my imagination. I never encountered such beauty when I saw Yongala.

One of the best dive spots I've ever been to was the Yongala in Australia. It is the site of a shipwreck in Queensland, which sank during a cyclone in 1911 killing 122 people. From a distance, the Yongala outlined magnificent corals. Unerwater life was abundant. Throughout my diving career, never have I experienced deep sea creatures like turtles, sea snakes, Manta rays, tiger sharks, bull sharks, colorful fish and coral so beautiful. The feeling was very breathtaking and haunting at the same time, realizing that many people have perished there.

This is my best dive so far, and I feel a great sense of achievement. I would recommend every diver to schedule a dive in Yongala.

Koror, Palau

The dive spots in Palau, Micronesia is one of the most exciting experiences I have ever known. However, there is one particular spot that I always loved, which is the Blue Corner. It is one of the most adored dive sites in the whole world.

I have visited the Blue Corner years ago, which was filled with lots of beautiful corals and exotic animals. I have witnessed animals that I have never seen before such as the midnight sappers, the pyramid butterflyfish, and the bicolor damsels. I was also amazed to see lots of barracuda swimming in numerous groups. There are also different kinds of reef sharks. The Blue Corner is surrounded by strong currents, which make it a complicated dive.

The Blue Corner is such an exciting place to dive. Many tourists consider this as the premier dive site in the world. This is a must-see haven for the hardcore diver.
