Don't know if it's the best, but it's free and has been around for several years: Scuba Gear and Scuba Diving Equipment - Discount dive gear (Cheap online!) (http://www.diverecord.com)

There's one or two listed at www.midwestmuckdiving.com (http://www.midwestmuckdiving.com) on the right side somewhere. I don't have time to pull them up and link them here, but will when I get back home.

Several years ago I used an online dive logger website. It was interesting, but I quickly decided that it wasn't worth the effort. My dive computer can download into a log on my computer that I can print out if needed.

Here are some:

Top Choices

www.diverecord.com (http://www.diverecord.com) - Probably the longest lived popular dive log site. A concern for online logs is what happens if the site goes away.

Scuba diving for marine conservation (http://www.earthdive.com) - IMO one of the more interesting dive log sites as it tracks log entries for scientific purposes.

Some Others

Ultimate Dive Log - Online Scuba Diving Logbook (http://www.ultimatedivelog.com)

thedivebuzz.com

divelog.in: Homepage (http://www.divelog.in)


Dive It, Share It - Free Online Dive Logs & SCUBA Diving Community - Welcome (http://www.diveitshareit.com)

My Opinion

Use a blog. Takes a little more work and it won't have the visibility by others, but you can create your own format, log your own info and ultimately won't have to worry about your site going away. Weebly and Wordpress are two great places to start if you decide to go down this road.

Diverecord was who I used.

I guess I was bored today, I started updating the online log again.

I was also a little bummed out on the lack of good divelog websites. I am creating a new online scuba log and im looking for scuba divers who want to help shape the site into something awesome! If you want to be a beta tester for my website send me a private message or visit my website.

I'm curious: what if the dive log web site goes dark? What happens to all your information then?

Would it not be better to make a template on your own computer and use that, with backups as indicated?

The main issue seems to be a fear of the website disappearing. For one, I can tell you that I am dedicated to keeping this online forever. But of course, trust is earned so I have decided to create the ability to Download your entire logbook with the click of a button. That way you can use my site to share your dives with friends on the internet and maintain a copy of your logbook on your computer. I will have the option to download in PDF or CSV.

You will also eventually be able to Import your CSV dive computer log file for a dive.

The site is also in English and French

You may want to consider a smartphone app. I've downloaded a free app for my Android phone that I haven't used much yet, but seems pretty user-friendly and full-featured.

I think this would solve the problem of not having access to the web-based dive logs because the data is resident on the phone.

Ultimate Dive Log - Online Scuba Diving Logbook (http://www.ultimatedivelog.com) is my website
It grew out of frustration with another online log that couldn't log the things I wanted to.

without bragging too much, I can say ultimate dive log is one of the best online logs around. because it gives you complete freedom about what to log.

create your own dive type lists
have 0,1, or as many as you want buddies.
keep track of all the marine life you have encountered
enter multiple tanks / gas mixes (for the techies like myself)
support for rebreather divers about pO2, scrubber, VO2
and lot's of statistics with detailed click throughs
it supports uploads from various export files from dive computers

I recently added XML export of a dive, so you could save your data offline
and my site has been around since 2005 and will not go offline as long as I'm diving myself (which I hope to continue to do for at least 50 years :smiley2:)

Neat information - I hadn't ever thought of an on-line dive log. Those sites are pretty cool. I would hope that these sites would give you the option of doing an export through excel. If not, it would be an incredibly easy operation and someone should recommend it to them. If they are smart they have redundancies that would prevent them from losing information, but who knows

I agree with this thought... I would have the same concerns about an online log.
I've been using the Dive Log app on my iPhone (also available for Android and Windows Mobile) along with DivingLog 5.0 program on my PC to keep track of my dives... the app isn't cheap - I think it is up to $14 right now, but it used to be cheaper when I got it. The program on my computer and the app on my phone sync with each other so if I update via my phone it will add it to the computer or the other way around. The PC program also imports dive information from Oceanlog - so I can basically sync my dive computer via Oceanlog, then import it into Diving Log 5.0 and I'm good to go.
It even keeps track of your dive sites (if you put in the locations) and can show you on a map where you have been diving, it lets you view all information about your dive including the profile on your phone... and you can even have your dive buddy sign your logbook using the touchscreen on your phone!

Here is the site about it: Diving Log 5.0 - scuba logbook software for diver - dive log, scuba log (http://www.divinglog.de/english/home/index.php?Site=PPC)

EDIT: I just noticed that it mentions being able to upload your dives "to the web" on the page I posted a link to... I've never used that feature, so I didn't even know it was there!

Alright... I just decided to test the web sync feature in Dive Log 5.0 using the site: divelogs - Online Dive Logs (http://en.divelogs.de/)

Here is the online version of my dive log: divelogs - Logbook by PTAaron (http://en.divelogs.de/log/PTAaron) - yup, my dives are short and shallow!

DiveItShareIt.com has been online since around 2006/2007 and provide really good stats on your dives. Only problem is it hasn't been updated since it went live. Still, for fear of loosing something digital I still use these logs, which I quite like: Elite Dive Products Limited - Elite Dive Logs - Quality Dive Log Book Refills (http://www.elitediveproducts.com/elitedivelogs.html)
