Additional Info

Leon Boey is a GUE, HSA and PADI instructor based in Singapore, Bali, and Jakarta, running the dive education centre Livingseas Asia.

Diving since 2005, his first love has always been diving shipwrecks and remains so, but he’s enjoyed all sorts of diving since and loves being surrounded by fish.

Having dived many places and seen firsthand the gradual degradation of the reef over time, he's started to take a more serious approach towards conservation.

Conservation has become one of the core values of Livingseas through the creation of multiple coral reef rehabilitation projects in Jakarta and Bali, along with a sustainable approach to dive operations and education.
