B&J Diving Centre is a PADI 5 Star IDC Centre that was established in 1987 and is run by a Malay/German/Swiss management team. It has dive centres in two locations on Tioman Island in Malaysia (Salang Bay and Air Batang Bay aka ABC).B&J has launched it's own upper market hotel (Tioman Dive Resort) in January 2012 to serve our clients even better.We take pride in providing the highest quality dive education for our customers as well as enjoyable leisure diving trips for already certified divers. B&J has a 100% safety record since it's existence and we constantly invest in maintaining/upgrading our equipment. Dive equipment is well maintained and regularly replaced, the air is tested for purity, the dive boats are large and comfortable and the dive groups are kept small.It might not be known to many but Tioman Island is home to some of the healthiest coral reefs and a myriad of marine life. B&J has been there from the beginning and has helped maintain these reefs by organizing regular environmental events such as cleanup days, COT (Crown Of Thorns) collections and more. B&J has been awarded several times by PADI for it's "Outstanding Contribution to Divers Education" and also as a “Project AWARE Environmental Achievement Award Winner”. B&J is also a “Go-Eco Operator” and a “Longitude 181 Ambassador”, promoting environmentally safe diving with a strict no glove and no touch policy. As a PADI 5 Star IDC (Instructor Development Center), B&J is amongst the top dive centers in Asia and the very experienced instructors teach all courses from beginner to instructor level. B&J is further a DSAT and IANTD Technical Diving Facility and provides DAN O2 Provider courses.If you like to see some of the most beautiful coral gardens in the South China Sea, a vast variety of tropical reef fish, turtles, sharks, cuttlefish and some of the best spots for nudibranchs in the world, then you shouldn’t miss a visit to Tioman Island.Two Tank dive trips for certified divers are organized daily and you have the choice of additional afternoon boat dives or night dives. If you prefer to take it more relaxed, then you should head for some great muck diving on the house reefs. Nitrox is readily available.Technical divers are drawn to Tioman to either enrol in more training and to visit some of the most spectacular wrecks in the world, HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales. Next to diving we assist you with transfer and accommodation bookings or invite you to join one of our regular cleanup efforts to protect the ocean.

I made an Open Water Diver course at the B&J Diving Center and I can really recommend this place for diving classes. All the people there are very nice and helpful. The groups are quite small (we were only three) so you get a more individual support. With Stefan I had a great diving instructor. He had a lot of... More

Everyone at B&J is super friendly and it was a pleasure to feel at ease right away. My first day of diving was a little crowded on the boat and in the water but we all saw 2 big sea turtles so I guess that made it up :) The second day was a lot quieter with fewer people and... More

Dive with B&J in ABC for 5 days. They take effort to ensure all dive sites are not repeating despite their 3 daily dive departures. The frequent dive departures (2 morning and 1 afternoon) meant that those who go to Tioman for diving will have plenty of choice and able to max. their diving time. If you are taking the... More
