We had a great time with Ray's Dive Adventure! The dive spots on Tioman Island are amazing. The vibe at Ray's Dive Adventure is great, they know what they are doing and the diving equipment is all well maintained. The Divemaster showed us al the nice spots and they planned the dives so we didn't go anywhere twice.

Ray’s Dive Adventure is an amazing dive centre, where you only find very welcoming and friendly people.
I had the pleasure to meet Bibi, my divemaster, for my PADI Open Water. She is just wonderful, always very happy and motivating. She has a lot of patience and really wants you to understand what you are doing, I always felt very safe. What I loved about her was the way she taught the course, you could feel how passionate she is about her job and she makes scuba diving very tasty:)
The whole crew is very chill but at the same time you can definitely rely on them.

The underwaterworld is beautiful on Tioman, I‘ve seen sharks, how cool!;)
I had the best time ever!

I did my advanced, rescue and a lot of fun dives with Ray's. The diving around Tioman is top, and the guys at Ray's just make you want to stay and dive forever. For me Ray's was the heart of my Tioman experience. Love the place and the people.
Thanks everyone see you again!

Rays Dive was a fantastic experience. Having never even snorkelled with fish due to being very scared of them I decided to face my fear and go for a trial dive at Rays dive. I did a trail dive, which was amazing, so I decided to give the open water course a go. This was definitely a great decision. Ray and Chloe were great and run the dive school very well, very welcoming, always happy to help and give advice. My instructor for the course was called Jes, he was brilliant, friendly, very knowledgable, patient and made me feel at ease in the water.

It was a fantastic experience and I cannot recommend Rays Dive enough. Thank you Ray, Chloe and Jes!

Cheapest one I found on the beach, but I didn't really feel welcome here. Not a big thing at all, but I like when the atmosphere is super warm and welcoming. And thought Ray's where lacking this. My friend did he's open water here and he said it was good. When we tried different dive shops on our travels he did admitt you could really tell a quality difference.

Still great option if your on a strict budget! They have good gear and competent staff!

My partner and I are advanced open water certified divers and we spent 16 days on the island. We did a total of 23 dives with Ray's Dive Adventure. After visiting all the other dive centres in the village, we decided to give it a go at Ray's because of the way we were greeted by the crew when we walked in, their openness and the reviews on Tripadvisor.

The vibe at the dive centre is very relaxed and after spending so much time there (even just hanging out in the afternoons) we felt we were part of the family.
Ray’s Dive Adventure is not the largest dive centre in the village and that is how we like it. We never had to deal with diving in large groups and the DMs give the divers more personal attention. Some of the gear looked a little banged up, but there was never an issue concerning our safety. As long as the dives are safe and fun, looking fancy is not a priority.

We make it a habit to ask to look at the gear before we decide to dive with a company (and so should you) and based on that we were confident that they are a responsible enterprise. There were some issues with the boat which meant that we couldn’t dive for a few days, but that was quickly resolved by working together with another dive centre (people help each other out on the island, which is nice).

We appreciated the flexibility of the dive centre. We had a say in which dive sites we would like to see. The DMT even spent an hour with me on some skills to help me feel comfortable with them again. Also, it doesn't hurt that in front of the dive centre is one of the few chill hangouts that serves alcohol. The last night on the island, the crew made us dinner and at some point even sang to us. After that it all got a little cloudy.

We enjoyed our time on Tioman immensly, largely because of these great people.
In conclusion, we are very satisfied with Ray's Dive Adventure and we would recommend it to other people. We loved ABC village and the dive centre family so much that we are even considering coming back next year to do our rescue course with Ray's.

The staff at Ray's dive is really friendly, easygoing and helpful. We enjoyed diving with them and Tioman island has great spots for diving. There is also a nice bar at the dive center– great for chilling in the evening.
