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.

At the end of a month-long diving tour of Indonesia, my partner and I ended up in Timor-Leste, a first for both of us. Warmly greeted by the staff, they took charge of all our gear and took us to our accommodations. We had a nice room, but because they didn't have an overabundance of guests, they upgraded us to...

I just came back from 7 days of diving with this crew. Forget Raja, Timor Leste is the place to dive! The guides show everything and loads of it: amazing healthy colourful corals, amazing muck diving, and amazing barracudas and bumpheads! There are dugongs and sharks to be spotted as well. We also had bottlenose dolphins accompanying the boat ride!!!

The staff were excellent, amazing, and very helpful not only with diving but also with local sights/food. There isn't too much to see in Dili, but a few sites that are worth... More

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!
