What we do

We’re here to make dive planning easy, build a community of scuba divers and enthusiasts, foster user-generated content and reviews (no bias!). More importantly, our focus is on YOU – We’re here for you on every step of the journey from start to finish, making sure every detail of your adventure is planned to perfection.

Yes, we are web-based, but we’re here to talk to you on your next dive adventure. We make personal suggestions and work with you to solve issues you may have. We have real relationships with our network of operators, and we pride ourselves on friendly personalized service. Contact us or use the chat and talk to us today to discover what makes us different.

Why we do it

We’ve been through it, we know how it feels. So we want to take away the painful and stressful part of researching your next trip, and let you focus on getting psyched for your next travel adventure with a peace of mind! Oh, not forgetting for the love of diving of course 😀

Our Approach

Discover Dive Locations

We constantly release information about amazing dive locations to help you uncover your next diving adventure. Plan and book your next trip with ease!

Tried and Tested Operators

No one should not put up with rodent infestations, poorly maintained equipment and dodgy guides (we’ve been through it so you don’t have to!). Our feedback and review system is designed to enhance the quality of your dive adventure.

Seamless Experience

Just want advice? Our team is happy to help. We get the best offers from our partners and pass them on to you. Our transparent process will ensure your discovery and booking process is painless.

Got more questions? FAQ this!

How many dive locations do you cover?

We currently cover Malaysia, Brunei, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Giving you over 50 beautiful dive locations to discover. Oh yeah!

I would like to dive outside the countries you cover, are you able to help?

Of course. We research and customize your dive plan so you don’t drown in information. Alternatively, you can check out our “What’s Bubbling” page to see trips and events organized by our partners. Convenience is just a click away!

But I'm not a scuba diver. I wanna be one. What do I do? How do I start? Where should I go?! HELP!

Relax. Breathe in… breathe ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuut…. Wasn’t hard was it? Consider that a quick tip to breathing underwater, and you’re already on your way to be a diver. The first stride is always the daunting part, just take it easy, don’t be shy and give us a nudge. We will guide you through this fulfilling new lifelong journey.

How far ahead should I plan my trip?

Seasonality varies from location to location; therefore it is advisable to book your trips at least a month (sometimes two to three months) in advance. However, we would always do our best to accommodate last minute requests.

Would I be charged any booking or "consultation" fee?

Absolutely none. We get the best offers from our partners, and pass them on to you.

Do you have a minimum or maximum number of divers you can accommodate?

Nope. We have planned trips and courses for solo divers up to groups of 30 and corporate events. Capacity depends entirely on the availability of our partner dive operators, but fret not, that’s what we’re here for and we will do our best to accommodate to requests regardless of size.

Do you help with visa arrangements and applications?

Sorry. We are effectively a scuba diving concierge, not a visa agent. You can check out the Travel Info sections on each country we cover to learn more on travel visas for each respective country.

Do I need scuba diving insurance?

Most recreational divers dive without dive insurance (similar to going on vacation without travel insurance). Nonetheless, your safety is our priority. We are working on something exciting… watch this space!

Do you offer experiences for non-divers?

Absolutely. We work closely with our partners to ensure a trip will be fulfilling to both divers and non-divers alike. Do browse through our site for more information (psst: non-divers can try the discover scuba diving course for a quick (limited) scuba diving experience) 🙂

How do I know if the dive operator is legit?

Our partners go through an internal vetting process to ensure legitimacy. If they are not the type of operators whom we’d be happy diving with, we will never recommend them to you. 🙂

How much should I budget for a trip or course?

Sky’s the limit, to be frank… Prices range anything from RM399 (day trip) to RM1499 (for a course or 4D3N package) or even up to RM16,000 (half day private yacht charter), which depends on requirements, type of lodging (if any) and subject to availability including seasonality. But fret not, we work with our partners to ensure you get the best offers and experience.

What if my dive operator cancels on me?

We would never want this to happen to you. But in the rare event of a cancellation due to unforeseen circumstances, we will do our best to suggest an alternative of a similar experience originally planned.

I don’t wanna dive with strangers. Can I have a boat all to myself and my buddies?

Of course this can be arranged on a best effort basis. But do note that most dive operators impose a surcharge on private boat charters and private guides.

Do you accommodate special requirements?

We do our best to working with our partners to ensure your requirements are met.

Best part about going on dive trips with ScubaHive, I just pack my gears and go. I don't have to worry about logistics, dealing with dive centres and accommodations. Phil looks after us all very well and I love the fact that they will scout for the best deals and it's fuss free. Will definitely follow on all their trips if time wasn't the issue! ?

From the beginning we were in the hands of Phillip and he took care of everything. He showed us the itinerary from different dive sites and listened to our wishes. Even we booked the transport from him. He was amazing and everybody can book their next dive trip in safe hands if you choose ScubaHive!

ScubaHive arranged the Advanced Open Water certification for me - from recommending an operator and dive instructor to making the bookings and follow-ups. One stop shop if you want somebody to take care of everything from start to end. The instructor Phil arranged is experienced and thorough.

Wish there is more stars for me to click but Mark Zuckerberg only made 5..So Scubahive actually deserves more than 5 stars. It's hassle free, no fuss, no worry, even made all the confirmation while i'm still at 3272m above sea level. Many thanks to Scubahive for showing me another world which i saw only from a TV box since young. Would definitely recommend you guys to the world!

Great place to get all your research for a dive trip done! They've covered it all from the underwater temperature and which resorts to stay at. I didn't have to look anywhere else when planning my trip!

Scubahive did an amazing job organising a last minute trip for my wedding guests from hk to the islands. Literally called them up the evening before and my wedding guests were off to the islands the very next morning. Wouldn't have been able to do it without them. Very reliable. Needless to say, my wedding guests enjoyed themselves very much. Thanks so much Scubahive!

I think what set Scubahive apart from the rest is their network of dive operators. Planning, pricing and even dive site recommendation are all taken care of.

Scubahive completes my friend's ultimate wish! It was a busy weekend in Dungun for the divers and there was no availability until Phillip managed to find us a spot for all 6 of us! Everything was great and splendid 🙂

Scubahive was our best advisor during our trip in Sabah. Obviously their long experience and the best contacts in the area made our diving incredible. But not only diving, but also any kind our excursion was perfectly organized. They do their best anytime to fit your demands and your timings. I can only recommend them. We stayed in ND Divers guesthouse during our honeymoon and the whole team made our stay so special!
