Had a great time ‘end of season’ diving with TDC. We stayed at Japamala Resort and were collected by TDC in the morning and delivered back after our 2 dives in early afternoon. This worked perfectly for us and having staff who are so friendly and accommodating makes all the difference. The organisation for each day focused on safety & variety of diving experience; ensuring all divers were confident in the water and had fun. The conditions were remarkably good particularly given the time of year. Amir is an absolute star as a dive leader and found us all sorts of underwater wonders (including lots of nudibrancs, shrimps, cuttlefish, free swimming giant moray eel, black tip shark, turtles...) Looking forward to our next dives with TDC.

I booked to do my PADI Open Water Course with TDC, having absolutely no prior diving experience. I was a little nervous, but the staff were all so friendly and reassuring. Everything is really well structured, so you never feel out of your depth (no pun intended). Safety is top priority, and there are extra measures in place for dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic. The dive sites themselves are incredible, I was able to see a lot of incredible marine life even as a total beginner. It is the staff that really make TDC such a special place. The General Manager, Rosie, is so passionate about diving, and very friendly. My instructor for the course was Amir, who immediately made me feel welcome. He was incredibly patient and good humoured, not to mention having excellent knowledge of all the local marine life. Diving with TDC was such a fantastic experience, that I would wholeheartedly reccommend. Thanks to them I have the skills and enthusiasm to continue diving.

Absolutely amazing place to learn diving! My instructor, Kay, is a patient and easygoing teacher. He is also a very responsible teacher, making it his mission to turn his students into good divers. Dive master Amir and general manager Rosie are also very pleasant to be around with! This dive centre will always be my top choice when I return to Tioman!

I did my Open Water with Tioman Dive Centre and would highly recommend anyone else that is planning to get their diving license to go with them. Amir was our instructor and he is super patient with us and make sure he spend equal amount of time to each student and giving advises on where to improve during the entire course. Also, Amir is a funny guy where he would crack jokes during courses so that we wouldn't feel nervous during the course and even though he is a funny person, he can be strict while diving because safety comes first :) Besides that, other staff (Mel, Arie, SImon, Rosie and etc) were friendly as well where they make sure we felt comfortable during our dive course. Make sure to do a fun dive with them after your course! it would be super fun :D

Wonderful experience! I did the Advanced Open Water at Tioman Dive Centre and all I can say is that the full experience was outstanding!From the pre-arrival information and administration with Rosie always replying my emails in less that 6 hours to the documentation provided, everything was flawless. The diver instructor was also really professional, giving me the best possible experience and always paying attention to my needs. I felt so save diving with him and he is really knowledgeable about the aquatic life around the island. Last but not least, I would like to also share that this diving centre takes extra precautions to ensure the safety of the customers in this Covid-19 times. They register and check your temperature everyday, you have your own tea cup to use, they disinfect the second regulator after the buddy security check.
