About B&J Diving Centre
B&J Diving Centre on Tioman Island has been established in 1986 and is run by a Malay/German/Swiss management team. It stands for quality and service without cutting corners on safety. B&J is a PADI 5 Star IDC Facility that conducts all PADI Dive Courses as well as daily dive trips to the best dives sites around Tioman Island. Tioman Dive Resort and B&J Dormitories are owned and operated by B&J. Certified divers join up to 3 boat dives per day plus night dives. The 2 morning dives bring you to dive sites in the vicinity of famous Coral Island, whereas the single afternoon dive will be at a dive site closer to Tioman Island. Distance by boat to the 20+ sites is between 5min to 20min. Group sizes for leisure diving and courses are always kept small with a maximum of 4 divers per PADI professional.

In overall, I had awesome time during my stay in Tioman and I enjoyed the DSD course. Nice ambience with good food and bar around B&J Diving Centre. Shout out to one of the staff Hayati for easing my stay and my diving instructor Wendy for not giving up on me.

When we talk about Scuba diving, Padi comes to everyone's mind as an established entity with world class courses. B&J was a whole new level of having an ease booking process, great diving instructor, especially, Mok Tai Wah. Mok has great leadership skill, exceptional teaching capability. This comes from someone that has thalassophobia, Mok made me overcome my fear. B&J has great faciltiies, friendly staff, dive masters. Scuba Diving is my new hobby now, thanks to Mok and B&J. Stay awesome.

I have dived with B&J on Tioman several times. This latest trip again confirmed that they are one of the most professional dive operations on the island: good for both experienced leisure divers like myself, and for learners from beginners upwards to much higher levels. Their facilities, equipment and operations are all of good quality, and well run. And their staff, from owners Ben and Martin downwards, are friendly and generally a delight to deal with. A further bonus is that they have what is now virtually the only decent bar on the island, right beside the dive centre and their adjacent Tioman Dive Resort. The latter is also a good place to stay at, with well maintained quality rooms (though there are other cheaper options nearby if you are on a budget).

Through the efforts of Reef Check Malaysia and this dive centre, Tioman Island is a spot of environmental hope amid the despair of the rest of Malaysia. To get here you leave on a ferry from Mersing, a trash choked ocean town than leaves you depressed, but once you arrive to ABC Beach where this dive shop is located all that changes. They recycle, there is filtered water available without having to buy plastic water bottles, and they work together to remove the rubbish that washed up from elsewhere (including massive ghost nets). The dive shop reports to reef Check Malaysia to help protect this beautiful island and the efforts have made a difference- the diving is good, there is still healthy reef left, and the fish populations are recovering. I definitely recommend diving with B&J if you dive because you love the ocean and want to protect it, because they practice what they preach. I was very impressed.
