I was really upset with Mel as my booking was messed up. I initially booked for 8 persons but subsequently added on more divers. I did change my hotel booking through Mel as well. I messaged her 3 times and called to confirm that she got my email and changes, to which she replied OK. Travelling with 14 divers, I... More

I cannot recommend this company at all! Before we came to the perhentians, we had email contact with mel from turtle bay divers, asking them if the diving season already is running and which place to stay they can recommend. They wrote back, they have started the dive season already last week (march 10th) and we can stay at mamas... More

Tip: There is a coral reef near this beach, I was not aware of it earlier but snorkelling in the coral reef was one of best experience in the entire tour. Marine life is... More

My girlfriend and I took a trip to Perhentian and we stayed there for close to a week and in all the dive centres we had gone to so far, this one was professional, friendly, safe and most importantly, a lot of fun! All the dive guides at turtle bay divers are big fans of diving just like any recreational... More

Took my Open Water course 2 weeks ago. We were truly blessed with probably the best dive instructor around. Ed Syme. He was very experienced and deals with every situation professionally. During our first confined water dive (when we took our first breathe underwater), some of us sorta panicked. But he made sure we were all comfortable underwater and OK... More

I did two dives with Turtle Bay. The first one I did was the refresher dive since it had been five years since I got my certification, and I was feeling a little nervous. I did the refresher with Fiona, who was awesome. She was very patient with me and took a lot of time to answer my questions and... More

This is an absolute must do. Easily the highlight of my trip. I was in a small group of three, our instructor was Ahmet. He was very patient, knowledgable and strict. You know you're getting good training. All the staff at Turtle Bay are friendly and professional and very helpful, even with things not relying to diving like where to... More

Did 8 amazing dives with the awesome team here. Everything was well organized by big boss Yaakub despite the crowd over the long weekend. Diver to DM ratio was always 4 or less to 1, and they kept a log of every dive. Boat, DM and diver information are recorded so if anything is accidentally left on the boat, it... More
