I came here to do my Open Water Course. Had a great time during the course. My instructor, Nafi is an excellent, very professional Instructor. I would highly recommend anyone who would like to do the course with him. I did my first fun dive with Petra and she is amazing! Great support, highly professional. Feel free to dive with... More

I was diving there in 2009 and Anke was the dive master, a great professional. But then I repeated my experience in 2013, apparently all the staff had changed (as when I read the reviews), but this really didn't matter, because the new staff was just the BEST! Petra was the instructor for the Open Water Diving Course for my... More

I did some nice dives and really enjoyed staff and dive sites (especially then three Police Boats). Its was all very personal and pleasant, nice de-briefing with lots of recalling of all... More

This is our 4th trip to Perhentian and our fourth (4) time diving with Watercolors Dive Center. We only found out that Anke and her team left after we arrived since I was not aware that Andrew was the new manager. Anyway, it did not matter a bit since Andrew and his team run the dive center very well and... More

The dive centre lost its entire dive staff last year. I am pleased to say that I am happy with the new management and kudos to Andrew Keogh and his wife Sharon for running it just as well if not better than last year. I am going back this Saturday with new expectations - when I was there last, I... More
