    We were hoping to snorkel and see the turtles but only quiet beach, big rock and nice white sand. Better bring your own food and drink if you want to spend some time there.

    It will be best to visit Teluk Keke during the high tide. The corals here are pretty and there are lots to see, but beware of the sea urchins! One thing that needs to be improved is to provide public bins for people to throw their trash. There's just so much trash in this hidden spot away from the beach, with no proper bins to collect them. It is such a shame to see all those trash because Teluk Keke is beautiful, and it should remain so for future visitors to this paradise.

    Universal Diver has always been consistent with their service. It has always been very good and reliable. Safety is always their number one priority and their instructors are always very knowledgeable, kind and patient hence why I keep going back to them. Dive groups are always small so they're able to give a more personalized attention and guidance. Charlotte, Jay, Dee and Chico; keep up the fabulous work. Will definitely come back again.

    My wife and I travelled from the UK back to Perhentian with our 5 children after last visiting 25 years ago. We wanted them to experience scuba diving for the first time and chose Flora Bay based on their reputation and great reviews. We 100% made the right choice as Kelvin, Henry and the team made the experience one that we will never forget. Two of the children did their Open Water course and the rest of us did Discover Scuba and a series of fun dives. I would highly recommend Flora Bay Divers for their professionalism, expertise and commitment to running an ethical and ecologically aware dive operation. The communication and customer service was very good as there was lots of dialogue pre-holiday and from the moment we arrived they showed great flexibility to ensure that we all got to do plenty of dives without feeling rushed and with consideration to the younger children in our group. Their expert knowledge of the reefs and patient approach to teaching made the experience and we all got to see turtles, sharks, a huge variety of fish and corals, moray eel, sea snakes and all of the fantastic marine life that we wanted the children to see.

    We took Night diver certification course and package of 10 day dives.
    All of them we had with instructor William, who is amazing, positive and friendly guy and great professional. William did the best to ensure that everything is going smoothly, safely and that we could see as much interesting and beautiful things as possible. All the dive sites, which were suggested, were different and unique in their own ways and we enjoyed each dive, since all the time we noticed some new details and saw different types of creatures. Especially surprising were the night dives, which were totally different experience and which allowed to see the underwater life in a new way. William was great at noticing small sea creatures and at showing unique details. So we definitely recommend the place and again great thanks to William for the wonderful time!

    For the first time I did scuba dive & it was worth time & money. Both the instructor where helpful & corporative. We rented there camera but photos where not clear. That was the only sad part of the dive.

    We did our advanced open water with cosmic divers and it was the best decision. We had a really great time and fun diving with them. Booking and arranging the dives went smooth and we had been told a lot of great details about the dives sites and learned so much. We would recommend to everyone doing certification or just fun dives there. 😍

    We went for walk and looked at Some dive schools (Perhentian besar) we walked in at Perhentian Dive Center and the vibe was awesome. They planed a couple of dives we would like to do. D’lagoon for getting the feeling, next day up to the temple of the sea and sugar wreck! Dive Bucket list perentians compleet.
    I really mean when I say you’re all really chilled out professionals, with top gear! Loved the dives, had a great time, thanks to you guys!!
