Who is PELAGIC DIVE TRAVEL?

WHY WAS PELAGIC DIVE TRAVEL CREATED?

Pelagic Dive Travel was created out of the need for ease of search and booking, of the next Dive Discovery.

WHO IS BEHIND PELAGIC DIVE TRAVEL?


Terry Smith the Founder of Pelagic Dive Travel

My name is Terry Smith and I have been diving for the last 14 years. I learned to Dive in Egypt and was hooked, so much so I continued on and become a Dive Instructor in 2003. My enjoyment of travel has linked with my passion for diving. I try to dive in every location I visit, but what I have found that it’s quite hard to actually link the two together unless you spend copious amounts of time researching. Pelagic Dive Travel has solved this problem.

HOW DOES PELAGIC DIVE TRAVEL OFFER THE SEARCH?

Pelagic Dive Travel allows the certified SCUBA diver to search by Discovery. This unique search is by  MARINE SPECIES or a special type of experience or trip. Add your dates and the results show on a world map with Liveaboards, Dive resorts, Resorts. The diver then chooses the room or cabin, books, pays and receives a live confirmation.

WHO IS PELAGIC DIVE TRAVEL, THE COMPANY?

Pelagic Dive Travel (PDT) is a private Australian company. PDT is listed with ASIC and is trading as a Public Limited company (Pty Ltd). PTD is situated in Melbourne, Australia and meets all required government laws for a Travel Agency, and Scuba Dive Travel wholesaler.

We strive to source new destinations and dive sites, while maintaining a clear focus on supporting and encouraging environmental protection, awareness and education, for all aspects of marine life. We find the remote areas which are on the forefront of looking after the marine species and environment.
