I don't know where to start but cannot praise turtle bay divers enough especially Fizzy my instructor. I came to the island without intending to dive but only to snorkel. I did this with my favourite trigger fish who I named Hanry lol. By chance I met Fizzy who reInfused my passion for diving. I didn't want anyone else to... More

I spent four days diving with Turtle Bay Divers after a recommendation from a friend who did his DMT internship there years ago. I went in with no real expectations, and left absolutely delighted! I'm used to diving in the Caribbean, and to me, the dive sites in the Perhentians were amazing - the creatures were all new and exciting.... More

Me and my dive buddy completed our Advanced Open Water Diver Course with TBD (long beach) last week. Spent 3 days diving with TBD. Honestly speaking, I never felt the slightest pressure of taking a course, thanks to the super friendly staffs, including the boss, Mr. Yaakub. We were lucky enough to get Harun as our dive instructor; super cool,... More

Great dive shop in the Perhentians. We stayed on the small island and were a 30 second walk to the shop in the mornings... We got taken to some fantastic dive spots: Tanjung Basi - incredible visibility over a huge reef, saw so much marine life. The Pinnacle - I'd never dived a pinnacle before and it was great fun....

I did my PADI open water here at Turtle Bay Divers and they were fantastic. They were flexible with my dates and the atmosphere at the dive centre was fun and relaxed. My instructor, Naim, was knowledgeable and made our classes fun. Even though part of the course is watching boring American videos. The dives themselves were great. They are... More

Before I get involved with anything, I am always well prepared. I read the whole reviews and was contemplating whether to choose Turtle Bay, Panorama or other diving schools. Unfortunately, my diving experience here was a total shame. My instructor name was JONG CHEE YAP. He was cool at first but was easily annoyed at students. I was not comfortable... More

We took our open water diver course with 3 friends at Turtle Bay Divers. The instructors/divemasters (especially Harun & Fionna) were both extremely professional, rigorous and fun! They made our experience great & safe, and showed us extraordinary dive sites. Diving gear was always very reliable. This is a no-brainer: if you're going to the Perhentian islands, pick Turtle Bay... More

We had a fantastic time with turtle bay divers. It's a great place for beginners and certified divers alike. The instructors are friendly, helpful and Eco-conscious. Diving with them was a great pleasure and we always felt we were in good hands. However, the beach has gotten really dirty of late. All the "night activities" that occur has people tossing... More

Went there last week to get the Open Water Diving License in a group of 9. The meeting with the instructors felt very personal and they were very friendly and easy going. I have nothing bad to say really, 5 out of 5 no doubt.
