We need to find something similar in Taiwan. Water depth less than 100 feet. Visibility greater than 100 feet of horizontal vision. Warm clear water.
Orchid Island probably has a good potential. Green Island possibly.
We know there is an east coast current running south. Offshore there is blue water. Perhaps to the north of Taiwan there are good conditions – that is good visibility before the fresh water flowing down the mountains clouds vision with silt.
International underwater photographers are now keen to see blue water marine species. Mako shark, giant tuna, dolphin.
Wealthy spear fishermen who seek big fish from blue and crystal clear ocean water. These guys are prepared to drift on the surface in bottomless conditions offshore, in the hope of encountering a giant fish.
In Australia we began our adventure diving with the help of professional fishermen who were prepared to take us offshore.
Perhaps the same can be achieved in Taiwan?
Professional fishing boats willing to take capable and world-class free divers in a search for underwater adventure with big fish.
These divers would pay toward the boat charter and give their fish away, possibly for free.
Blue water free dive fishing does no harm to the coastal ecology.
Scuba divers on the other hand need different conditions as per the above picture of mine. Pristine reef conditions are not going to be easy to find around the small island of Taiwan. Perhaps the outlaying islands offer something?
This is the tourism of the future for Taiwan. Eco scuba diving.
