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. « less

We stayed there mid July 2014 and took Open Water Diving course. Instructors James and Nic are very professional and passionate with what they teach. Equipment and schedule were organized. Accommodation was good, spacious, and clean. Wifi was at the common area and just enough to communicate to the outside world. Cheap meals can be located near the PADI resort.... More

Accommodation was high standard - clean, lots of space, en suite and modern. The diving is good - very pretty corals, plenty of variety, easy diving @ 15m –... More

We enjoyed our OWD course very much. Our Dive instructor Riccardo n Trainee instructor Luke were awesome! With them around make our course fun and enjoyable. Most importantly,our safety is their priority. Not forgetting, Tioman Island underwater view is spectacular.

We stayed at B&J Diving Center (ABC) from the 6th-10th of July 2014. We did the open water dive course in just three days. Our instructor Nic was very professional, helpful and patient.

Took a specialty course with Nic this weekend and totally enjoyed it. As I have come to expect from B&J at ABC. Completely recommend. Best place to train I've ever been to. And I dive about every month all over SE Asia.

Great diving experience with both teams from ABC (where I did my OW) and Salang branches (where I completed my AOW)! It's great to see how B&J maintains a good balance between being strict with safety standards and having a great relaxed atmosphere at the same time. Personally felt really safe with my instructors Nic and James during my Open... More
