Had an awesome time at Tioman Island thanks to TDC and I would recommend anyone who wants a PADI open water to go there. Claire was an awesome instructor and everything felt very professional. We stayed at Tioman Cabana, a very chill bar about 2 min walk on the beach from the dive centre. Just remember to book the ferries... More

While spending my holiday @ Tioman (Malysia), I got the opportunity to finally do my paddy open water diving course. The manager of TDC (Rosy) was my instructor, and she really gave me a superb experience and is very good company to be with as well! I was lucky, since I was the only student, I got private courses :-)... More

My dive experience was super incredible! I really love Tioman Dive Centre (TDC)! <3 The only thing you need to know: Safety is never compromised and conservation is also their full time job! My Experience: As the sea was choppy on the first day, we did the full theory on Day 1. We got over & done with the boring... More

A big thanks to everyone at the TDC, for making our vacation so much fun. Our group went diving and snorkelling with them. There are so many beautiful corals, not even 20 meters from the dive centre itself, so you only have to wade in & spot them. Everyone at TDC is so friendly and Rosie made us feel so... More

Hi there! Many thanks for your lovely review of TDC! We certainly are very lucky to have such a wonderful House Reef, just metres in front of the dive centre. Great for both snorkelling and training alike. Hopefully we'll see you again in Tioman soon for some more diving and snorkelling fun! Best Wishes, from the team at TDC More

James and Roxanne, thank you so much for being so informative, for taking such good care of us, and showing us all the cool stuff! We had a really great time and had a lot of fun whilst feeling comfortable and safe. TDC is good value for money and I would definitely recommend them to dive junkies!

If you have intentions to dive Tioman, make sure you make every effort to do your dives with TDC. I emailed the shop about two weeks before I got in, and was met with a prompt reply by the owner, Rosie. I had requested 11 days of diving, and everything was confirmed. I witnessed a ton of walk ups, that... More

I learnt to dive here, doing my Open Water PADI. The staff and operation is nothing short of excellent 5*. Very professional, incredibly fun, beautiful surroundings and Island. Tioman (Tekek), is not overrun with tourists, a couple of bars that know how to have fun and everyone I met was great! The staff at TDC are amazing at what they... More

I did my PADI Open Water course at TDC in July and was thrilled with the service that I received. The staff are wonderful and there were only 3 of us in my group which made it a very personal experience. Would definitely recommend! :-)
