Scubaplex was designed and created by a small team of enthusiastic recreational divers based in Malaysia. Frustrated by the absence of a reliable, one-stop information source and booking system for scuba diving, the group decided to remedy the situation, by developing a hub where divers could connect and share, Scubaplex was spawned. With the vision of providing a free resource for divers, Scubaplex is rapidly becoming the best online stream of dive-related essentials out there. The Scubaplex ethos is summed up in one simple line. A world of diving experiences at your fingertips.
