Equator Diving was founded by Ben and Bonnie Jackson following years of travel to some of the most remote corners of the world in search of virgin reefs and exceptional underwater encounters. Since then, Equator has evolved to offer one of the largest ranges of dive resorts and liveaboards worldwide. Equator Diving is based in the UK but our clients come from all corners of the globe.

Our Special Trips
We have a particular focus on exclusive liveaboard charters and group trips which can be found on our Special Trips page. When possible we like to escort these trips so we can really get to know our clients. Our special trips range from destinations yet to be discovered by the international dive community to well know areas where our focus is always on making sure we dive at the right time of year and if appropriate with the right phase of the moon to maximise underwater encounters.
Exploring New Destinations in Indonesia
Currently one of the most exciting areas of the world for exploration is Indonesia where new dive spots are constantly being discovered. Bonnie's roots lie firmly in Indonesia having grown up there and both Bonnie and Ben speak fluent Indonesian. As such we are constantly looking for the next great dive spot in Indonesia and will always be at the forefront of exploration in this vast country. Having a hand on the lingo is also invaluable when leading our Indonesian special trips - whether it be negotiating excess luggage at the airport or talking to the local dive guides to make sure our guests will always be diving the best spots!
Pound Sterling, US Dollar & Euro bank accounts
Whilst Equator Diving is based in the UK a lot of our clients are based overseas in North America, Australia, Asia and Continental Europe. So why do so many non-UK residents choose to book with a UK company? In part it is because some of our trips are truly unique and can be found nowhere else in the world. But we also believe it is because of the personal and bespoke service we offer with regular phone calls based on your time zone. Our multi-currency bank accounts are part of our continuing commitment to offer world-class service to our worldwide clients!
