Wannadive.net started with modest ambitions of posting a few photos and linking friends scattered across our small planet. However, we have made a small change and now only want to produce THE reference site for all divers. Providing access to:
So much for modest ambitions!
Here at Wannadive.net we are happier diving than programming; so Wannadive.net has been developed as an Open Environment Web Site (OEWS - I think we just made this up). An open environment is designed to allow maximum participation in the development of the site content, by anyone anywhere in the world - proving they are on the Net and have a minimum familiarity with Web browsers.
To keep this site dynamic and useful we want everyone and anyone to contribute; three ways are possible:
Obviously, "secret dive sites" is going to be a difficult subject! Our policy is clear on this: Secret dive sites are only secret when they are genuinely secret ! that is known to you and a handful of mates. If the dive sites exists in dive magazines, in dive guides or is widely known, then be adult about it: this is no longer a secret.
Equally, consider the fact that one day or another you will want to leave, your local area and go and explore the world's dive sites. If you have ever heard of, or seen photos of, mythical dive site in Chile, Indonesia, Namibia or Sweden, don't forget that it is because someone has taken the time to share the information with you. We are the first to deplore overcrowded dive sites, but think that a detailed data-base could help to alleviate the problem by allowing people to be more adventurous in their choice of dive sites. If you or our Regional Correspondents pick up a dive site, which is locally accepted as being genuinely Secret, then contact us and we will check up and if necessary remove the dive site from the web-site.
Send it in anyway - we want to hear from you !! If you have important information about a dive site data-sheet, or about a question/answer - send us your text in both English and one of the following: French, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, and we will try to improve the English version. If we get too many comments, this will not be possible as we have limited time and resources. Contact us
As we are trying to create a real dive community, we are happy to add your homepage or dive site as a link. This will done at the country or zone level. However, we will only create links if you have contributed to Wannadive.net by adding data. Equally, we will require your email so we can adequately maintain the site.
We have classic banners advertising program. We create also pages of advertisements for local companies offering dive related services/activities. These pages will be associated with the zone pages, and will be accessible only if the visitor to Wannadive.net deliberately goes looking for this information. If you want to know more about advertising, contact us
If you have questions concerning Wannadive.net which are not answered by either the Help pages or these FAQ pages then please contact us Remember that, despite the ultra-professional look of this site, it is run by a couple of friends in their spare time. So if you don't get a reply immediately, don't be alarmed - we're probably off diving some place!
