Description: B&J Diving Centre is a PADI 5 Star IDC Centre that was established in 1987...
B&J Diving Centre is a PADI 5 Star IDC Centre that was established in 1987 and is run by a Malay/German/Swiss management team. It has dive centres in two locations on Tioman Island in Malaysia (Salang Bay and Air Batang Bay aka ABC).B&J has launched it's own upper market hotel (Tioman Dive Resort) in January 2012 to serve our clients even better.We take pride in providing the highest quality dive education for our customers as well as enjoyable leisure diving trips for already certified divers. B&J has a 100% safety record since it's existence and we constantly invest in maintaining/upgrading our equipment. Dive equipment is well maintained and regularly replaced, the air is tested for purity, the dive boats are large and comfortable and the dive groups are kept small.It might not be known to many but Tioman Island is home to some of the healthiest coral reefs and a myriad of marine life. B&J has been there from the beginning and has helped maintain these reefs by organizing regular environmental events such as cleanup days, COT (Crown Of Thorns) collections and more. B&J has been awarded several times by PADI for it's "Outstanding Contribution to Divers Education" and also as a “Project AWARE Environmental Achievement Award Winner”. B&J is also a “Go-Eco Operator” and a “Longitude 181 Ambassador”, promoting environmentally safe diving with a strict no glove and no touch policy. As a PADI 5 Star IDC (Instructor Development Center), B&J is amongst the top dive centers in Asia and the very experienced instructors teach all courses from beginner to instructor level. B&J is further a DSAT and IANTD Technical Diving Facility and provides DAN O2 Provider courses.If you like to see some of the most beautiful coral gardens in the South China Sea, a vast variety of tropical reef fish, turtles, sharks, cuttlefish and some of the best spots for nudibranchs in the world, then you shouldn’t miss a visit to Tioman Island.Two Tank dive trips for certified divers are organized daily and you have the choice of additional afternoon boat dives or night dives. If you prefer to take it more relaxed, then you should head for some great muck diving on the house reefs. Nitrox is readily available.Technical divers are drawn to Tioman to either enrol in more training and to visit some of the most spectacular wrecks in the world, HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales. Next to diving we assist you with transfer and accommodation bookings or invite you to join one of our regular cleanup efforts to protect the ocean.

We just completed our open water certification and went over to B&J for a few fun dives. The entire team there is extremely professional, for us Eva and Javier particularly stood out. Eva was our Dive Master and she made sure we had the best diving experience over the weekend. Considering we were all fairly new divers she was extremely... More

B&J Diving Centre instructors were professional and very patient, they ensured I had all the skills and knowledge prior going for the open water dive. I had completed my confined water course with a different school and came to B&J Diving school as a referral case. They (Nick and Freddy) answered all my questions and ensured that the confined water... More

We had a top experience here- our instructor (Gemma- go Berkshire) was fabulous, very calm and patient but lovely and great fun. We had done the e-learning before (which I would recommend, it saved loads of time) so we were straight in the pool, and in the sea after just half a day! The accommodation was lovely, location really convenient... More

It was a amazing experience dive with bnj dive team. Safety always on top of their priority list. Clear communication starts from the first inquiry email until you leave the island. They even help to book ferry and accommodation.

We did the 4-day PADI Open Water Course at B&J's. The entire experience was a blast! Nic, our instructor, was especially awesome. She was incredibly helpful and attentive throughout the course. One thing I'll mention is that they offer a number of different dive packages which include accomodations at various hotels nearby. We stayed at Fiqthya, but I'd recommend staying... More

I did the Open Water and Advanced Open Water package - all with the same instructor Freddy - who is a great and knowledgeable instructor, even at his young age.
