I went for my first ever dive and was understandably nervous and had quite a number of questions. The TDC team was patient n responsive to my questions and really helped to calm my nerves. It made my Discovery Dive truly enjoyable. The TDC team was professional and it was very reassuring.

This is a good reason to go to Tioman: a professional diving center with a relaxed attitude in coral reef paradise. Everybody is very environment conscious. All dives are fabulous. Just great!

I completed my open water course with TDC last month. TDC owner Rosie was helpful throughout my interaction - before, during and after my course with TDC. Was lucky to have Ellie as my trainer, she was extremely friendly and at the same time professional. Great experience with the team overall. The dive center is just along the Swiss Cottage... More

I highly recommend this diving school. Especially for first time divers. The school is very professional. We felt safe and had a lot of fun at the same time. All of the staff are nice and make you feel at home and part of the group.

Did 4 dives with Tioman Dive Center and they were great. People working there are were friendly, helpful, careful and offer everything they can to help you. Their gear is very good and updated. The Dive site itself is in the Swiss Cottage Inn, which seemed and looked great, but we were staying somewhere else. I would definitely recommend this... More
