We dove with Angel for a full week. My girlfriend did her Open Water licence and I did loads of fun dives. The instructors are all really laid back and friendly, the equipment is all in good condition and the dive sites are all really nice. Thoroughly enjoyable time and strongly recommended.

I walked into the dive shop and was greeted with a "yes" atmosphere all the staff were in hammocks talking, no customers. I wanted to do a refresher course and I could do it anytime really. Everywhere else said I'd have to wait until the next day so I went back and signed up to do it that evening. When... More

First time diving and they made me feel at home under the water. Saw heaps of interesting creatures, from moray eels to octopus. French instructed was super nice - she made it easy to learn. More info on perhenthians here (scroll down a bit) http://thatjerktraveller.com/places-of-the-world/

I had the opportunity to complete my open water course at Ombak Divers. The entire experience was amazing from start to finish!! Really cool shop and the staff made me feel right at home! My instructor was very knowledgeable, patient and funny. I'm glad I chose to complete my certification here - I just wish I could have stayed longer!!

I met Lee in my hostel and he talked me into doing a taster dive, after which I went for the PADI open water programme, which was 950 ringgits (excellent value). They waived the taster dive fee as there was some duplication. Lee was friendly yet serious about safety, which is exactly what you want. Very relaxed vibe at the... More

Gear is old and leaky and the staff seem to be indifferent to it. I'm never too impressed when they seem to still be hung over from partying at Long Beach and taking fellow hung over divers out. Many other options along Coral Bay with new gear, better boats and with diving instructors from Malaysia who know the reefs better!

I finished my open water course here and had a pretty terrible experience. All the gear leaks so a bunch of people were aborting dives early. Not only that but most of the depth gauges don't work so good luck if you're trying to dive without your own computer. I couldn't even do my compass skills since not even the... More

Theres plenty of diving options on Pulau Perhentian, and Angel Divers were the nicest ones I talked to. I decided to go for the 5 dives package and ended up doing 7. The price is really cheap compared to accomodation and food on the island. But what made my diving amazing was the wonderful crew working at the shop. They... More

It's hard to write a bad review for a shop with such great people, but be forewarned: the equipment here is not well maintained. Almost everyone on each of my dives had some different problem with their equipment. Maybe I was just unlucky but there are shops on the island with safer rental equipment.

The ten dives i just had with angel divers is some of the greatest ive had. The large schools of yellow fish at the dive site called Temple is really mesmerizing. Other great dive sites they go to is T3, suger wreck and west reef. Shouldent be missed! You cant really shop for price on the island, since all the... More
