“Great staff, great dives, great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

My wife and I dived at Tioman dive centre as part of our honey moon, I logged 13 dives as I was already qualified and my wife did her open water course.
Their attention to both safety and the environment was reassuring.
The staff were all warm and welcoming, overall it was a brilliant experience.

“Would definitely recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at Swiss Cottage and dived with Rosie at Tioman Dive Centre. What a combo!

Equipment was well maintained and most of it seemed pretty new. They have two speedboats which are in great condition. I think one is generally used for lessons and one for fun diving. This is great as the groups are small.

I had two different dive masters during my stay. Adam and Wak. Both young but have really good knowledge of the dive sites on Tioman they went at good speeds and checked on divers regularly.

Wish I could have stayed longer and done more dives.

“First Dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

My brother and I did the PADI Open Water Dive course here over 4 days. Our dive master, Neil was great! The staff (and other visitors) were helpful and friendly. They were also very professional and despite it being our first time diving, we were assured that we were in capable hands. We will definitely go back once again for more dives

“Fantastic dive centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

I have just got back from spending 12 days in Tioman diving with TDC and I have to say they were amazing. I did 18 dives while I was there, they were very accommodating, did their best to ensure I did the exact dives I wanted to do - one of which was so cool, they made it possible for me to dive it 4 times (the Sawadee wreck)! Very professional, friendly, reasonably priced, and I would highly recommend them to anyone going over to Tioman! (Which I also highly recommend doing!)

Hi there!

Terima Kasih for your lovely review of our dive centre. It's great to see that you enjoyed your holiday, and especially the Sawaddee wrecks :) They are pretty awesome at the moment! I don't think people believe us when we say there are literally thousands upon thousands of fish schooling around the small wrecks, pretty spectacular!

Perhaps we will see you again, above water, or below...

Many happy bubbles for the future...
