Founded by three scuba-obsessed friends in 2016, GoodVis is an online scuba diving magazine that focuses primarily on the Asia Pacific region.

Why did we decide to start this?
Simply because we saw way too many websites and articles covering diving in other parts of the world, particularly the Americas and the Caribbean. But what about the biggest continent on this planet – Asia? Some of the most awesome dive destinations are found right here, in our neck of the woods, so we found it odd that it wasn’t getting more attention in the digital sphere. Of course, we couldn’t leave out Oceania and its amazing sites so we’re giving it the love it deserves, too.

What is GoodVis all about?
GoodVis wants to provide useful information to fellow scuba-lovin’ readers in the form of short and sweet articles, like lists. Sure, we’ll have a couple of long-form features every now and then, but the fact of the matter is that everyone wants everyone to get to the point. Don’t you agree?

We’re also all about building a community and we want all sorts of faces and voices to be seen and heard on GoodVis. It’s about the everyday people (or in this case, diver), not just a select few personalities. And – whether you’re a writer, underwater photographer, marine biologist, super professional trip reporter, master and commander of frogfish – we believe in shining the spotlight on up-and-coming talent as well as established names in the industry.
