Dive Timor Lorosae is Timor Leste's premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre offering a full range of friendly and professional PADI dive courses and daily diving trips on the beautiful tropical coral reefs that surround Timor Leste!

Why dive Timor Leste? - As the newest country in Asia, Timor Leste has easy access to some of the most recently discovered and least explored diving in the region! Making up the southern section of the Coral Triangle, Timor is home to a massive diversity of coral and fish species.

Why dive with DTL? - Dive Timor Lorosae (DTL) was established in 2002 by Mark Mialszygrosz. After traveling, exploring and scuba diving the country since 2000 he set up Timor's first PADI dive centre and has strived to set and maintain the standard for scuba dive travel, scuba dive training and scuba dive tourism within Timor Leste.

Even though DTL has now grown to become a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre, we still pride ourselves on providing a friendly and personable service, while providing safe quality diver training at all levels.

I will recomend this divecenter. Very friendly and helpful staff. Good dives!! Accommodation was clean, but little too expensive. Also restorant was expensive. But divecenter people did make us feed welcome and also, when our flight was cancelled, they offered to stay on more night in their questhouse also picked us up from airport! Thank You!

I did 4 dives over 2 days with Dive Timor Lorosae. Two dives were boat dives at Atauro and 2 were shore dives in Dili. All of the dives had something different to offer. As a diver who is certified but still a novice, I thought the dive leaders were very helpful. I felt completely safe and well supported. It... More

The food at Castaways upstairs is good and very reasonably priced. The dive staff are very helpful. This trip was only 3 days of diving, but we did a day shore diving... More
