We went diving the third year again with Josh, Ceridric and team and a wonderful holiday. We were contacted weeks before arrival proacvtively to plan ahead. Our youngest made his open water junior with Josh and got best care and special attention to learn best as possible. I did my advanced open water with Josh and again got best attention and learned a lot from him. We all (family of 4) felt very safe diving with him and the team and he really made sure that is understood and demonstrated well what should be seen and learned during the courses. So no "short crash course" but proper education. It was more thoroughly compared to our experiences in other Padi schools. So we had a very good time with 37 dives only this year and two courses and talking all into the account they are our first choice in the area.

We were staying at the Barat hotel and wanted to do some dives whilst we were in the Perhentian Islands so decided to book with the Barat Dive Center for convince. Josh and Neville were brilliant guides for our dives and could not have been more helpful. My girlfriend and I had only done 5 dives before hand but Josh and Neville were very professional, friendly and made the whole experience really enjoyable. A friend who was with us had done over 40 dives and agreed that Josh and Neville were excellent instructors and guides. The dive sites were great for beginners (we did 2 reef dives and 1 wreck dive) and we all felt safe and confident the whole time thanks to Josh and Neville. I would highly recommend using The Barat Dive Center Perhentian because of these fantastic members of staff they have. 5 stars!

Did our first and second ever dives with Neville at Barat and couldn't have asked for more. His introduction to scuba was quick but thorough, maximising time in the water once we felt comfortable to do so. First dive was down to ~9m, and the following day we went straight out to Shark Point and reached ~11m, seeing turtles, puffer fish and reef sharks. In hindsight we regret not booking a PADI course ahead of time and getting our OWC. If you're keen to do this and have 4+ days on the island, make sure to book ahead!

We are staying in Barat resort, were given dive list from the reception when check in to book any dive trip during our stay. Went over to dive shop, sorry we are full for tomorrow. What about the day after? Please come again tomorrow to request. As they told. Full again. Don’t like being played around like a kid. Absolutely appalled by the way they do business.

We dived for the very first time with Cedric, instructor of Barat Dive Center. We appreciated his the detailed and clear explanations. He transmit calm and security. Because everything was fantastic, we finally decided to repeat the experience so we made a second dive with him.
