We arrived at Perhentian Islands with no accommodation or plan, so set out along the beach to find somewhere to stay and a centre to begin our dive course! We loved Flora Bay itself, and Flora Bay Divers immediately stood out to us with the open layout of the centre and the friendly, approachable staff. Me and my friend, along... More

I did my OW there and learned a lot of my very kind instructor. Afterwards I did some fun dives and they were well-organized by helpful staff and good equpiment. They try everything to make your dive an unique experience. It was really worth it and would love to go back there!

This is an excellent dive centre. Very professional, big on safety, very friendly staff and a great dive location. I checked out all the shops on Talek Dalem, and these guys were by far the most welcoming. Highly recommended.

A good dive centre is nothing without good personnel, and I think this would be Flora Bay's strongest aspect. A great place to escape city life with it's chilled atmosphere. Did my AOW and Nitrox and while everyone had a laid back attitude, the instructors were very professional in ensuring we had a great experience. Dive sites are fantastic and... More

I would recommend anyone to visit Flora Bay and Flora Bay Divers. While the Perhentian Islands have become busier with more resorts etc over the last 15 years the beach at Flora Bay Resort has kept that laid back Malaysian island feel. The staff are wonderful, friendly and take pride in the resorts appearance. If you are looking to learn... More

We visited Flora Bay Divers on the most beautiful Perhentian Islands in August this year - it is like visiting paradise! The diving course was fabulous - the instructors were extremely professional, patient and friendly, I don't think you we could have had a better experience. We travelled as a family of four, and were split into pairs with an... More

I had planned to get my OW license for almost 2 years. Perhentian island and Flora Bay was my final discretion and proved to be a brilliant one. My instructor William Sim is supper responsible. He is meticulous and very patient. And all the staff are extremely friendly and passionate. Highly recommended diving school!!!

Flora Bay Divers are by far the best dive school on Arwana beach. And for sure one of the best on the island. They organize diving as it a should be. With the kind of serene but nicely relaxed way, that makes that you can trust the school. Services is informal but goes all the way, including carrier all your... More
