I did here Open Water Diver, Advanced Open Water and a few leisure dives as well. I am really happy that I did those courses at this center – I have learned A LOT, I do feel comfortable underwater now, have seen great things underwater and spend a really good time.
As for the pure learning experience – I cannot recommend it more. I was lucky to have almost entirely individual training, and I know that groups are really small here – usually up to 2-3 people. I did appreciate the attitude towards teaching – attention to important details, no shortcuts and focus on making me a good diver, not only a certified one. In the end, it affects safety underwater after the course, so it is rather important :). I also would like to thank once more my instructor – Josh, who is really a great person, diver and a teacher.
Tioman has variety of diving sites – there is a nice House Reef, just in front of the Diving Centre, there are a few small islands, accessible by boat and there are nice sites close to the Tioman itself (North Point being my favorite). There is rich life underwater, the list of corals, fish and other species that I have seen is so long that it is hard to type it here.. But – yes, it includes turtles and sharks:). Waters around Tekek are within the protected area, so this is why there is still so much life. It is obviously important to respect and preserve it, and I just want to add that TDC gets one more like from me for promoting responsible diving practices and participating in reef conservations programs.
