Scuba Diving in Hong Kong

Hong Kong may not have a great reputation as a scuba diving destination, but there is a great number of different species of fish and other creatures. Over 300 species of fish and more than 80 species of coral inhabit Hong Kong waters.

Hong Kong is a great place to get certified, so when you finally manage to take those well-earned couple of days off, you get to enjoy diving straight away. Scuba diving in Hong Kong offers you a chance to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city life and a chance to see much of the same marine life you will find in other Asian dive destinations.
