The dive sites around the island were amazing. Special thanks to Harry! Our fantastic instructor during the course. We really enjoyed your company and we had... More

Everyone was extremely friendly and full of endless energy - even if were tired we couldn't help being infected by the spirit of TDC's amazing team! Rosie was extremely informative, patient and friendly, I had no qualms about this being the place to learn OW diving from! Harry (and Romina, and Claire) was experienced and exuded calmness so that even... More

I have never dived before and was a little nervous but everyone at the centre was incredibly friendly and helpful and our instructor, Mandy, was a fantastic teacher. She was great at taking us through everything we would be doing before we entered the water and equally as clear... More

It was my first time diving and I don't feel very comfortable in the water, so my instructor Mandy had her hands full keeping me calm under the surface. She did a great job. Although I did not pass the practical exam, I had a wonderful experience seeing the beautiful coral and fish. Thank you Mandy and the rest of... More

We passed our Advanced OW level with Clare at TDC last june. Good lessons and skills training, great location, friendly staff. I recommend TDC for a great dive in Tioman. We also did 2 great dives in the shallows rocks of Tioman with TDC.

I liked how I managed to pose for every picture taken by one of our instructors. Jk. They're very good at what they do and that's all I can tell. Had a great time and also a close encounter with a sea turtle!

Did three dive's with Tioman Dive Centre, they were great. Really enjoyed all of the locations that we visited. Saw so many turtles, black tip reef sharks and lots of beautiful coral and fish. The staff were all really friendly and I had a great time! Would come back again!

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
