Frequently Asked Questions

What folks usually want to know about dive.site

What is dive.site all about?

dive.site aims at giving divers a place where they can plan their future trips based on the previous experience of other divers. The website revolves around an interactive map which allows you to easily explore dive sites, dive centers and the information that the community of divers has been adding (such as dive site ratings, the marine life you can find at a particular dive spot or a more detailed description including dive site depth, currents and underwater features).

We also decided to add the available dive centers in each area, so a diver can access such info if needed. Our main focus remains around divers and their experiences with the dive sites themselves, though.

Why should I make a dive.site account?

We will then send you a link for you to claim your business. This will allow you to edit the details yourself and especially gain visibility on dive.site, as claimed dive centers get ahead of unclaimed competition.

I own a liveaboard, does this mean I won't be listed on dive.site?

No, you can still be listed on dive.site even if you own a liveaboard instead of a regular dive center. Simply give us an email with your operation's land headquarters and once you claim your business just make sure to emphasize in the description the fact that it is a liveaboard and the services you have on board.

What else can I do after I claim my dive center?

Simply follow the 'Improve' link or write us a message, telling us which dive site you would like to describe, and we will send you an invitation link for you to do so.

We provide credits to the dive centers who send us descriptions, as you can see here.

I am not happy with the name/coordinates of a dive site, can I change them? If so, how?

Any user can send suggestions for improvements to dive sites.

In order to do so, just go to any dive site's page and hit the 'Improve' button, which you can find at the bottom right corner of the map.

I saw a very interesting critter during my dives, how can I add it to my divelog on dive.site?

Simply add a dive and then head to its dedicated page. You will see a row of buttons underneath the dive site’s name, one of which is the 'Marine life' button.

As you type the critter’s name, you can either submit one of the suggestions that will pop up after the first three letters (if the animal is in our database) or submit a new species.

All new entries are checked by our team of moderators, so you don’t have to worry whether you have misspelled the name.

You can upload individual dive logs or import a file with multiple dive logs and select the specific dive you wish to add. We will think about adding the possibility to upload multiple dives in bulk in the future.
