About us

Julien Blog Plongée Hi there and welcome to my site! My name is Julien HUC. My passion lies in photography, travelling, blogging, but most of all, my true passion is scuba diving. I have been lucky to be able to travel over the globe and so, I created this blog to be able to share my experiences and to share with you all of my favorite dive spots. I hope that you enjoy this page and that you will also share your experiences with me too.


I was originally born in France but was raised in equatorial Africa, where we then moved to West Africa and then finally, when I turned 18, came back to France to pursue my studies (engineering). With a craving for travel, I escaped as soon as I could to live in India. After that I returned to Gabon in equatorial Africa before discovering the beauty of Asia, in particular Indonesia where I lived and worked for 3 years. And now, with my line of work, I am often sent on projects all over the world.

I have therefore been lucky enough to be able to dive in many different countries.

Please do not hesitate to participate in our dive community here at Divezone.net and to leave comments on places you have been to share your experiences. Also feel free to ask any questions and I will be happy to respond.

If you would like to publish an article, feel free to send me a blog post with your dive experiences along with some photos, as I would love to open my blog to others.

You can contact me here by email.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you will like the site and become part of the dive team here! Enjoy ;-)

  1. Hi there.

    What a great site you have… :)

    I am wondering if there is something i can do for you – like some great underwater photos for the Similans and Phuket areas that you could use on your site – or some content about the diving etc in Phuket – Similans. As i would really like to try and get a link for additional information on the Phuket and Similan Island pages:


    I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Have a great day.

  8. Hi guys!
    Really nice website you have here. I have a question for you.
    I’m planning on doing my Open Water Diver course in Febuary. I’m thinking about Maleysia or Thailand. Can you recommend good places for beginner diver in those countries in Fabuary. It would be great if you could go snorkling as well.

    Asking money to get the job in the States or in Africa … :

    Company Name Sea Horse Diving Center
    Location Vero Beach Florida, Dubai Marina UAE, United States
    Date Posted February 15, 2015
    Category Diving Instructor
    Job Type Full-Time

    • Hi Scuba couple, I received a few emails from “Sea Horse Diving Center” saying they’re offering an Instructor Job for me. Based on your earlier comment, in guessing this is a scam of some sort?

  10. I am a beginner when you consider diving. I have done maybe 6-8 dives so far. My daughter is a beginner diver. We have both done Open Water diving course with PADI in Thailand.
    Can you advice whether Hurghada or Sharm El Sheikh will be more suited for diving for me and my daughter. I plan to go to either Hurghada or Sharm el Sheikh by end of May. Thank you.

  11. I and my daughter our beginner Divers. We have both done a Open Water Dive course with PADI in Thailand. Since then we must have done 6-8 dives over the last couple of years. I will be grateful if you can advice whether Hurghada or Sharm El Sheikh will be more suitable for us. We are planning to go be in Egypt by last week of May 2015. Thank you.

  12. Hello Julien,

    I am working at Divebooker.com – an online reservation for scuba divers. I tried to reach you by email with my business offer. Could you please kindly advice, have you received that?

    Best regards,

  13. Hi there,

    I’m planning a trip to Belize in December. Unfortunately we only have a limited number of days there (7) and would like to spend a few days snorkelling and diving. We have our PADI licence, but are relatively new to the sport. Would you be able to recommend a few sites which we should definitely not miss?


  14. Hi Julien,
    I’m working in Jakarta.
    In your opinion, what are the best options for day/week end dive trips ?
    Any recommendations for dive centers in the city ?

  15. Hi Julien,
    Thank you very much for useful post. Wish you well in your venture to dive all of the beautiful locations of our world.
