Taiwan, called 'Ihla Formosa', or beautiful island, by the Portuguese, now often referred to as 'the hidden gem of Asia', provides a stunning setting for travel and adventure. With over 100 mountain peaks over 3000 meters, lush valleys, numerous hot springs, beautiful beaches and stunning coral, the adventures are nearly endless.
Based in Taipei, Formosa Dive Academy is a foreign managed company specializing in dive training and adventure tours. We organize diving and hiking trips to some of the most beautiful and stunning areas of Taiwan. Join us for an unforgettable adventure on one of the most beautiful islands on the planet.
Our dive training focuses on helping clients develop their diving skills so they become knowledgeable, proficient, confident divers, all while having fun. We also stress environmental awareness and environmentally responsible dive practices in all of our courses and trips.
Our dive trips range from one day excursions to the North East Coast during the warmer summer months, to weekend and extended trips to destinations around southern Taiwan such as Green Island, Kenting, Orchid Island and LiuQiu, as well as other destinations in South East Asia.
Our hiking trips range from day trips to beautiful areas in northern Taiwan to hiking Taiwan's highest peaks, such as Jade Mountain (YuShan), Snow Mountain (Syue Shan), and Nan Hu Da Shan. We also have trips that are less strenuous but equally stunning in scenery, taking in hot spring water falls, 2700 year old trees, aboriginal villages and lush tea fields.
