Engaged with them for 2 days of boat dives, very friendly bunch and brought us to few good dive spots. However due to weather conditions, visibility wasn't the best. Equipment provided was well maintained and they are very helpful to assist from pre-dive to post-dive.

Good price and booked my open dive course during MIDE. Great service by the team. Extra information provided on food and accommodation. Patient, skillful, friendly and helpful instructor. Highly recommended dive shop in Tioman Salang.

Dive Asia Tioman were brilliant, they seemed very organised in comparison to the other dive shops, they were very friendly and welcoming, and I think they were the cheapest as well. Bonus! Most importantly I felt safe and comfortable at all times. Thank you for 2 beautiful dives, the marine life here is so rich it's mind blowing,crystal clear, warm water, barracudas, sting ray, nemos, nudibranches, beautiful corals, swim throughs, and the rest... <3

Did my Padi open water course with DiveAsia last week and it was an amazing experience. Our group included a teenager who needed a little extra attention but both our instructors (Yves and Leanne) were fantastic teachers. Lessons were clear, detailed and fun. I'm especially grateful that they took the time to ensure we understood everything and safety was always a number one priority. The rest of the crew were incredible friendly as well.

We had some free time after our getting our license and did 2 additional dives with them. Leanne took us to some incredible spots and we saw an amazing variety of marine life and corals.

I somwhat agree with an earlier review that said some of the equipment provided needed replacing but all the essential gear (masks, BCD, regulator tanks etc) were all in good condition and well maintained. Would gladly trade aged wetsuits for quality dive crew!

Would definitely recommend.

Tip: Have an internet-banking enabled account or bring cash. Card payments attract a 3% fee.

Everyone at DiveAsia was very relaxed, friendly and accommodating.
Special thanks to Maria, who watched over my daughter while I was diving, and to Leanne, who showed me a ton of amazing nudibranchs!

I took my first Open Water diving experience here, the equipments was still well maintenance and have above average gear quality. Everything has changed now. When I got back here few weeks ago, the equips doesn't well maintenance anymore, more disappointing, when I got an oversized BCD (I should wear XS instead of M) it's not comfortable to wear an oversized BCD, especially when I had to do shore dive, my BCD slacked and slipped down too low, as I have difficulties to piggyback my BCD. The reason why they gave me oversized BCD, they said it's because they have no more, and they give priority to the OW and AOW students first to use the right size for them, it doesn't make sense, I was on my AOW, and they still didn't gave me the right size.

The other thing is when the gave me leaked regulator, the main regulator doesn't have mouth piece so that I had to use the alternate one, which was in bad condition as well, it was leaked, so that every time I inhale the water will in to my mouth and choked me, the dive wasn't please at all, I can't enjoy it because I was too busy to adapt with the leaked regulator, choked, and equalised at the same time.

After I can't hold it anymore, I told to one of the Dive Instructor about my problem, he tried my regulator then gave me his alternate, so I finished the dive with sharing regulator with him. He asked to 2 dive masters, who dive together with us, then at the boat after the dive finished, one of dive master said, the problem was not in the regulator but it because of me didn't get used to diving, so that I have a problem with that regulator, which in other words, for her the regulator is still ok, the problem was me is not a pro diver. Well, she just tried it for a few second only, she said it was ok, while I already used the regulator for more than half diving session that day.

The same thing happen to other diver, who was went diving after my session, used the same regulator, and the same thing happened to her. It chocked her.

Even though the problem was in their equips, they didn't want to admit it and I didn't get any discount for the issue I had because of their lack of maintenance.

Another thing also happened to my friend whose BCD always automatically inflate by itself. So he had to aware of his BCD and make sure it didn't bring him go up to the surface suddenly.
