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 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

We took our PADI Open Water Course at B&J's. The entire experience exceeded our expectations by miles! For the entire course, we had Jason as our instructor and we could not have been happier. He was professionel, patient and not to mention funny. We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone! The staff in general were welcoming, outgoing and... 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. He helped me through my difficulties with an easy-going, yet playful and very competent attitude! Kudos to the whole staff as well, very helpful! Equipment was spotless, computers available for...

We were picked up directly from the beach outside our hotel near Paya jetty. We were sized for gear quickly - they even accomodated one of our gorup members who wasn't PADI certified and took him snorkeling while the rest of our group dove. They were a fun group to dive with; kept everything light hearted, fun, and very safe.... More

Was there for a short weekend trip from Singapore, booked only 2 days in advance. Did 5 fundives in 2 days. Nice sites, divemasters are really good people. What I specially liked, they really care about the ocean. Eva took 2 times some plastic out of the sea (the only one we saw in fact in the otherwise clear water)... More

B&J Centre at ABC, Tioman. Went in as a referral, aiming to complete my PADI Open Water certification. From the onset, everyone involved--from the office manager to all the scuba instructors--were very professional and exceedingly friendly. I didn't stay at the resort, but did a total of seven dives with B&J. I had three different instructors; they were very knowledgable... More

I took the standard fundive package, accommodations was at Fiqthya, just across the bridge from B & J. Had 8 dives with B & J. The staff was great, friendly and very helpful. They had a very good dive boat, big and stable with enough room for all the equipment, sundeck, dry area with a toilet and even a smoking... More
