About B&J Diving Centre
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 love the depth of technical knowledge and quality of equipment used here. They keep very high standards and provide training for all levels under PADI, including Instructor Development and various specializations. Most importanly, safety is a priority here, they are caring and attentive, always ready to provide all the support needed to guide, refresh or even in the event of injury and first aid. Honestly, just rating them 5 star 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 would be an understatement, they are awesome! So it's 10 stars from me!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Haha! Thanks to my friends in Tioman and especially in B&J Dive Centre for and awesome experience, and hospitality! Bravo! And of course the B&J Bar for the awesome Keep it up!🦸🤘🦇🎉🎊🎵🤟🤙👊🤴🙏 🤟🤙👊🤴🙏🎉🎊☀️💥🌟🦇🦸🤘💗

Great experience with B&J Diving Centre. This is my second trip after the open water certificate obtained. First boat dive, excited yet nervous but glad we have a nice & pretty dive master, Saida who guided me thru the diving journey. She is patience & look after everyone in the trip. Understand she will move on to another destination & hope to see you again soon. Wish her all the best!

This is my third time back to B&J (or the only dive center I go to in Tioman, first time my OW, second time my AOW and this time just for FD). Every time I am back, it feels like family here. Although there are new faces around, there is no short of fun and friendliness. I have dived with so many instructors here and each one of them are cool and fun in their own way.

Recommended PADI OWD in Tioman for the whole family! Unforgettable moment for 3 of us when we signed up the OWD with B&J. My son and daughter who are currently 17 yrs & 13 years old, enjoyed it so much. Our instructor - Kamal Ouali known for his professional and experience diver take us through the course with patience and dedication, makes the journey of our OWD really worthwhile. The rest of the team were great and really helpful too. Tioman Dive Resort - place we stayed for 4 nights super comfy and clean. Love it 💕. So many things to be explored in Tioman and we definitely will come again..soon😘. Thanks B&J
