Tioman Dive Centre or TDC as it's known locally, facilitated my Divemaster course this year. Rosie the owner was very accommodating and extremely knowledgable - a great resource and support on the course and responded straight away to all my communications. She runs a tight ship of efficient diving and dive instructors.

A steady stream of dive courses meant I was always involved with my instructor Mandy who facilitated me learning the ropes in her awesome
fun & unique way. Very professional! Safety was paramount and I learnt so much about facilitating safe diving as a Divemaster.

I would recommend them if you want a small, team efficient, personalised, immersion into Divemaster as you will be involved in all aspects of being a DM and very hands on, with lots of customer contact (and a lot of fun!)

We were really impressed with everything about TDC. Equipment was good, staff were really friendly and helpful, trips were well organised without being overly regimented and the diving was also great. Really appreciated the way the staff catered for more experienced divers as well as those who were just starting. Highly recommended.

Excellent staff - patient, professional & caring. Small groups on dive boats; not crowded like Ko Tao, Thailand. A few smokers around the dive shop, which I find annoying, but smokers are at most shops I've been to. A great island & dive shop for divers of all levels. When I was there, students were doing their first dives, customers with years of diving were back for more diving with TDC. Definitely the best shop of the 7 that I've gone diving with. Highly recommend TDC.

it is great to dive with TDC. Romina our dive master is friendly, helpful. we stayed at Panuba side, which is more secluded and quiet than the other TDC at Swiss Cottage. and also getting on off the boat is through a wooden jetty. it saves you the hardwork of getting back to hotel on the sandy beach, which is very tiring after some dives :) must try their night dive as Panuba house reef is beaming with many "activities"
