in it's infancy for attracting international divers, South
Korea has excellent diving and something to offer all
One of the most popular areas is the island of Cheju-
do, or Jeju (just off the southern coast, about an hour
flight from Seoul), The waters off Jeju boast brilliant
soft coral gardens across white sand bottoms. Because
of the volcanic nature of the island, caves and caverns
are numerous and just waiting to be explored. For more
advanced divers looking for action, check out the vertical
walls that fall straight into the depths of the abyss.
The fish life here is a unique mix of tropical and cold
water species. Octopus, lionfish, scorpion fish, grouper,
jack, butterfly fish, angelfish, boxfish, and many others
can be spotted while diving.
