Hello there!

Hi! My name is Ara. I content creator behind Diver Bliss - a scuba diving, ocean conservation, sustainable lifestyle and travel website. I am a PADI Rescue Diver and have been doing ocean dives for the past 8 years.

Since launching my blog in 2019, I have been working toward my goal to dive in 20 of the best locations in the Philippines. I hope I can inspire you to live more sustainably, scuba dive in the best locations, and love the ocean as much as I do. So join me as I find bliss above and underwater!
