We used these guys for a week of diving on the Perhentians recently. Great place, well run, with lots of friendly and helpful staff. The equipment is generally good, and there are plenty of boats so you can always dive the sites you want to. The ratio of 4:1 divers to dive leader is good, and pretty much all the... More

Dove with TBD on 2 separate trips and both times have been amazing. They easily accomodated our preferences and schedule, including my wife's discover scuba and my freshly certified dive buddy while getting in all the sites we wanted to hit. Super friendly staff, and a lot of fun to be with. highly recommended!

There are many places where you can dive @perhentian. All spots are close to the beach. Some spots are more interesting than others. Consider diving at the "Sugar wreck". I find that the best place to dive.

Look no further than TBD if you are in perhentian! The divemasters were just so dedicated and friendly and you truly feel like you are part of a family. I spent 3 days there doing 6 dives and every one was memorable, thanks again to the staff working there. They were informative, helpful, friendly and took notice to each divers... More

I haven't dived in years and had a wonderful experience diving with TBD. We emailed ahead to do the bookings for the specific dive sites we wanted to go and they sorted out everything for us. I was a little worried about diving again but my dive master, Liz did an excellent job at the refresher course and I was... More

I walked up to the shop on Perhentian Besar and asked when I could dive the specific site I wanted. They said, "whenever you want! In an hour or tomorrow morning or afternoon." I went in an hour with Leigh and had a personal dive at Pinnacle, one of the premier dive sites and had an amazing diving. I realize... More

Spent four magical days diving with TBD. You know you were having fun when you look back and realize it all seems like just one happy blur. - All of the dive team were fun to get to know and more importantly great to learn from. I became a better diver from my time at TBD. - All of the... More
