Perhentian Island has more than 20 dive spots that are suitable for all levels of experience. New divers can have a nice relaxing reef dive while be amazed by the brilliantly colored tropical fish and coral. Experienced divers can enjoy the freedom of spectacular reef diving, adventurous wreck diving and deep dives in an extremely idyllic and laid back setting. We teamed up with our neighbors Panorama Chalet to offer value for money Dive + Room packages which can be found on our website. Please note the accommodation provided is of basic beach-hut style. All standard rooms which are used for Dive + Room Packages are simple, but clean wooden bungalows for two people with fan, mosquito net and a bathroom with cold water showers. Rooms are set on a shady hill with lots of native trees just seconds walk to the beautiful beach. As Pulau Perhentian has no mains power, generators are used to supply power to the chalets which normally runs from 7pm-8am and 12noon-3pm. Panorama has a village feel with the chalets, great restaurant selling local and western meals from 8am-10pm daily, a small shop selling fruits, cold drinks and snacks and of course Panorama Diver. Everything you need is right here!

The dive masters/instructors are just a cool bunch. Umiey, Mark, Maddie, Dani, Nathan and all the others make the place special. They have the perfect balance of fun and professionalism/discipline that's needed when diving. Diving and following the required safety standards is not a joke...More

Had a blast while getting certified as an open water diver. After the course we decided to go for the Advanced open water diver right away. Awesome instructors that help you all the way!
