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

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!

I came to spend time in Tioman and decided to dive for the first time in my life. Instead, I completed my PADI course and an ADVANCED PADI course with these guys! The courses were a breeze, instructions very detailed and perfect, experiences unforgettable. I came back and instead of staying in the fancy hotel like I did first time... More

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
