The resort is well maintained and definately a cut above normal dive resorts. The Dive Centre has very friendly staff and helpful dive instructors. Of particular I would like to recommend Josh who is a divemaster at the resort.

I had an excellent refresher course with Nina. Excellent organization and service to book and prepare for the course with Sophia. The refresher with in Outram secondary school pool. Nina did the course. I had a lot to refresh and she did an outstanding job to remind me the basics after 18 months without diving. Thank you so much.

We made a few dives from the house reef, unique direct into the sea access ramp from diving center ! The water was not always clear but we saw corals of different types, fishes, small rays, turtle, black tip shark and went to the small boat wreck. The equipment was recent, in very good condition. Nice instructor with us, who did point a few hidden animals or remarquable underwater features. Nice snorkelling direct from the beach as well, the corals are protected and growing, various types of anemons with clown fishes

OrcaNation is more than just a dive company. In fact, I was told by Cameron OrcaNation Co-Manager in Rawa, OrcaScuba changed it's name to OrcaNation in order to better encompass all the company offers. Committed to marine conservation and experiential education, their dive instructors teach not only how to dive safely, but how to conduct marine research and macro and micro plastic surveys.

We've visited Rawa Island twice with overseas guests the last 6 weeks, both times was to get our friend and young godchild to get back to diving, Padi refresher course and learn how to dive, Padi Junior Open Water. The dive instructors, staff are very friendly, responsible and professional. The dive equipment in very good condition and in all sizes available. Theiw conservation efforts to be applauded. As we're seasoned divers ourselves and pretty spoiled, we were pleasantly surprised at the good conditions of the many hard corals and u/w life in general. Visibilty fantastic, though all shallow dives from the sparkling while beach. The jetty dive is a stunner with big schools of fish and full of critters. It is THE place to go to learn how to dive living in KL or Singapore or even overseas. The students from schools all over the region seemed to have an abfab time with their Orca scuba course and instructors. The resort is lovely, lush greens, white beach, playgrounds for the younger ones. Food excellent, the rooms, bungalows lovely and resort staff very welcoming and warm. I can fully recommend this lovely place in Malaysia which is our home, though KL a little far away for just a weekend trip, 4 hours drive plus. Make it 3 days at least!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us such a wonderful and detailed review, we truly appreciate the feedback! We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time at the resort as well as diving with us and we are so glad we could accommodate you as well as your friends and family. We love to show all divers what Rawa has to offer and are delighted when our divers appreciate not only the health of the corals but also the smallest of creatures that we find off of our house reef. We hope that you visit us again soon and take care!
