We took our 11 and 21 year old to do their open water course with Tioman Dive centre this June. They had the most patient and responsible dive instructor Romania that took time to slowly and patiently explain all the technical stuff to my little girl. They had so much fun while learning to be a responsible diver at the... More

I have had the best experience here on the local reef! The staff are fun and friendly and love showing you all the wonders they have off shore! Would definitely recommend to do you padi as well! They are very professional and have a super attitude to the ecology of the sea and shore!

They told us we could join the next day, and so we did. Nice relaxed atmosphere, very friendly staff and of course we got... More
