Nic, James, and Jeff of Eco Divers provided a really first-rate diving experience. They were professional and friendly and really tailored the course to the students' needs. I did the Open Water Diver certification during the tail end of monsoon season, so my friend and I were the only ones in our course. The instructors made us feel comfortable, ensured our safety, and helped us relax and enjoy ourselves as we explored the new world of scuba diving. Not only that, but they had a great sense of humor and were always willing to advise us about what to eat, drink, and see on the island. The center's location is excellent, as well. It's very easy to find when you get off the ferry in Tioman, and you'll get to see a beautiful coral reef on your first dive. Highly recommended!

Took my Open water course and also leisure dives for 3 others in my group. The open water course was conducted professionally, explained clearly yet fun and of course safety being the priority. Nic, the jovial female instructor ensure that all the required skills are taught and understand clearly.

The leisure dives were also conducted in a fun environment but safety again being regarded priority. The dive equipments were good quality and the dive centre easily located, just to the right of ABC jetty (can be seen from the jetty itself). The shallow waters in front of the centre is itself a perfect place to dive or snorkel. The crew of the dive centre were awesome, clearly diving is their passion.

The area around the dive centre are full of budget chalets (fan or air-con) as well as cheap restaurants, a little laid-back environment (no nightlife) but greatly appreciated in this fast paced world.

Jeff and Michelle, the owners, were quick and efficient in their email replies and always cater to the customers needs and requests. Would certainly be back to Tioman in future because of them.

Good job guys ;)

We decided to do our Advanced Open Water course at Eco Divers. The staff is super friendly, warm and welcoming. Our instructor Ivan was funny and very helpful and understanding, took his time to explain us everything in detail. I'm glad I did the course here as this place is not so crowded as other dive schools. Also, when you do the course with them you get a reduction for later fun dives which is a great deal.
Only thing you want to make sure is to check your equipment twice before you go diving as you have to set up everything on your own. I can highly recommend this diving school and enjoyed my time there a lot.

Everything was great at the time and my instructor Adam was awesome, however, after 2 months I am still waiting for my certification. I have been denied dives since then and now Jeffrey is not responding to my emails. Very unprofessional. I definitely don't recommend this place for your Open Water Course.

Let me start by saying the this review is in no was a reflection of the staff and is purely targeted at the owner. The staff were knowledgable, fun, and professional. The owner is either extremely lazy or a bad con artist. Upon completing our dive course we were assured that we would receive a dive certification within two weeks. After two and a half months of emails and calls I had heard nothing from the owner and had to resort to hunting down the instructors on Facebook to figure out what was happening. It wasn't until I threatened to report him to PADI for not issuing the licensees that he actually did anything. DO NOT DIVE HERE!!! It is a waste of your time and money. It was a bit cheaper than the other places on the island but the amount of time I've spent chasing the owner doesn't come close to the amount of money I would have spent at another shop. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

I have divided with them few times. My first four dives were good. But my fifth dive air tank was 110 bars during the dive and within 3-4 minutes it dropped to 40 bars that too we were in shallow waters. Then I came back after two weeks, I had full tank 180 bars to start with, by the time we reached dive site the reading was nearly 160 bars. Instructor gave me his gears and we started our dive. I was not able breathe through the primary then had to make use of my secondary.While finishing the dive, on the surface I tried to inflate my BCD but the air was leaking and I kept drowning. BCD did not get inflated at all, I had to swim to the nearest rock to cling on to it. I have dived with at least 4 other dive centers but never faced an issue like this.overall its a nice dive center with nice people but equipments be really careful.

Had a great diving exam with instructor Stefano and Flo. However until now our PADI exam is yet to received! The owner of the diving centre is so slow in processing our license.

To other future divers who gonna take exam here. If you plan for another dive in coming months right after exam. I suggest you think twice before going to this centre. Expect to wait for at least 3 to 4 months to get it process.

gear is old. licking, self inflating or no inflating bcds. the worst part is the lack of certifications. the owner rarelly buy pics or numbers for certify the courses so the instructors cant give u a paper one for posting. all the ones that the owner takes are never certified, means u pay for nothing. u never get ur title. crew are profesional but safety is limiited to the money that the owner expends, wich is not much. better go to any other place

Been diving with Eco-Divers from last year. Did my Open Water and Adviced courses there. Instructors are well trained and very patient. If you are looking for small or boutique dive center to get personal attention - this place is for you! All your questions and needs will be attended on the spot (the diving ones of course). So pack your fins and go diving!!! ;) See you all underwater

Directly the first impression was great. Even though me and my friends missed the ferry and thus where late we were greeted enthusiastically. Due to our resulting limited time we had a very tight plan which worked extremely well - thanks to the active and involved instructors.
The instructors beat all our expectations.
ABC, where the school is located is still quite undeveloped with only few restaurants and chalet providers along the beach - Another feature we greatly enjoyed!
