My boyfriend and I got our PADI open water dive certification here and it was a great experience. The group size is small and I always felt safe. Naim was our instructor and he was funny, but extremely knowledgable and made the class fun. All of our expectations were exceeded! The diving was amazing as well; beautiful fish, coral and... More

Did quite a few dives with Turtle Bay Divers. They were professional, provided good equipment and nice diving. Good prices, my girlfriend learnt to dive here and the dive instructor was brilliant. Would highly recommend!

We just completed our PADI Open Water Dive course here over 4 days with Naim (& Kay) - absolutely loved every moment. The instructors are friendly, extremely helpful and patient with all levels of divers. The dive shop (on Long Beach where we did our course) has a great chilled out vibe. Very popular for a reason - these guys... More

Came back here three years later, the dive shop is just as good. Great staff and dive masters. But there weren't as many turtles as three years ago:(

I felt very welcome at Turtle Bay even before arriving. They kept in touch with me frequently and was quick to answer any queries I had with very helpful and clear information. Some dive operators would give more attention and priority to big groups or those that take dive courses, but at Turtle Bay, even as a solo fun diver,... More

Signed up for the Open Water Course offered by the center. The admin staffs (Fizzy & Azlan) at the counter were very friendly and would even go the extra mile to help out with any inquiries. Do ask away if you have any doubts about anything, they'd be glad to lend you a helping hand! My instructor (Roy) was a... More

During our stay at the Perhentians, I did four fun dives at Turtle Bay Divers based on a recommendation of some people we met during our journey through Malaysia. Because there were many people going for a PADI course, I had the privilege to do two of my four dives together with a Dive Master and no one else. The... More

My husband and I have dived with a 2 different dive shops and we had the best dives with Turtle Bay Divers! We visited the TBD dive shop at Besar and Helmy was our dive master. He is warm, friendly and funny. We have not been diving for a year and though we did a refresher course at Kecil, We... More

My girlfriend and I did our open water course at turtle bay divers this july. Our instructor Harun was very experienced and we felt so safe even in situations of nervousness. All in all it were great days out. The dive center itself seemed to be a bit unorganised. I hade contact with Mel before we came to the island... More
