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! :-)

Again, thoroughly enjoyed 3 days of diving with TDC, visiting old and new friends. Mandy and James, thanks for a fun time diving and keeping us safe throughout the 8 dives. Looking forward to coming back next year. Cheers.

I did here Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water and a few leisure dives as well. I am really happy that I did those courses at this center – I have learned A LOT, I do feel comfortable underwater now, have seen great things underwater and spend a really good time. As for the pure learning experience – I cannot... More

I only have good things to say about this dive shop. We finished our advanced open water here, and did about 5 other leisure dives each. Boats cannot take more than12 people, including dive masters. Usually there is a 2 or 3-to-1 Student to Dive master/instructor ratio, which is the best one can ask for. On dives with less experienced... More

This was actually my second diving trip to Tioman but this time, we try out a different dive shop and dive sites, Tiger Reef & Labas. We went for the boat dives with another group of divers and they provided one divemaster for each group of us (three pax per group only) which is very considerate as we are worried... More

We'll focus on the underwater part of your holiday rather than in between dives :) Hopefully you will visit again with... More

Having arranged a last minute trip to staying at Berjaya Resort the dive trips were fully booked and the staff recommended i give Tioman Dive Centre a call. Was greeted by very friendly staff who suggest i visit their dive centre located at Swiss Cottages. My only brief to them was... More

After I contacted several dive shops in Tioman, the best communication was with TDC so I decided to go with them and it was a good choice. The staff in this tiny dive shop is very friendly (most of them British). Accidentally there was nobody else starting PADI Open water course at the same time as me, so I had... More
