Trip Type

This trip is a group trip, not a photography workshop. It will be led by an experienced Bluewater trip leader who will manage the trip logistics and ensure your needs are met throughout. While this trip is designed to optimize your photography opportunities, it is not led by one of our photo instructors and so meaningful photography advice from your trip leader should not be expected.

  • What to expect from our Group Trips

    • Meet like-minded travelers - Our Group Trips are perfect for solo travelers who enjoy meeting other divers or photographers and enjoy the support of a pre-arranged itinerary. Your trip leader will arrange group activities such as meals or game nights to ensure everyone feels part of the Bluewater family.
    • Problems solved - Your trip leader will be on hand to assist with any issues you may have. From delayed or canceled flights, to lost room keys and dietary requirements. We have dealt with it all before and will ensure that your trip runs smoothly.

About The Trip Leader

Tim YeoTim grew up in tiny Singapore, where driving for more than an hour meant you would need a passport. Traveling was always his passion, but Tim became addicted to dive travel soon after he got scuba certified in Malaysia.

During Tim’s undergraduate studies at UCLA, he flew home to Singapore every summer to visit his parents for a couple of weeks. Then he would take off to a new dive destination in Southeast Asia (such as Thailand, Indonesia, or the Philippines) to satisfy his cravings for warm tropical diving.  As his diving addiction grew, Tim eventually became a staff instructor with PADI and an instructor trainer with SDI. After getting his instructor certification, Tim spent time teaching scuba in Malaysia and Vietnam. Tim has since traveled to over 40 countries and scuba dived off the shores of 7 continents.

Tim loves all types of diving: Wreck diving in the Red Sea and Truk Lagoon, big animal diving in Socorro and Galapagos, beach diving in Bonaire and Bali, muck diving in Anilao and Lembeh Straits, wall diving in Roatan and Sipadan, and reef diving in Palau and the Fiji. Read more about Tim here.
