Got my Scuba license with TBD. 3 of us got our licenses while one of us had a license already and we all got to dive multiple times. On our last day (after we got our license) they managed to fit us in with another dive according to our schedule. They made our trip to the islands unforgettable. I would... More

Brigitte and her team were super accommodating and they have plenty of boats, instructors and dive masters so they are very flexible to meet your needs, wish we could have dived with them more. They are on perhentian besar ( at Mamas resort) and kecil ( long beach)

Had a fantastic five days diving with this centre. The diving was very good with reasonable viz (5-15m) and a good mix of life on the dive sites. The Divemasters were very professional and had lots of patience. The briefings were comprehensive and all had good maps of the dive sites. The kit was good and there was plenty of... More

I did my open water course here and it was really good. The staff is so kind and helpful and my instructur (Harun) was the best. If you go to perhentian to dive, I would highly recommend turtle bay divers.

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

This was our first diving experience but the dive master was very good and patient that we had an pleasant experience. The dive site was good. 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
