PADI OPEN WATER DIVER COURSE
Get Certify as a PADI Scuba Diver in Pulau Tioman Malaysia
Tioman Island offers very good diving opportunities with more than 25 dive sites. There is also good wreck diving such as the Soyak Wreck. Scuba diving is suitable for all kind of divers and it is a popular place for diving lessons. It is also a good option for night diving and macro underwater photography. For more advanced divers, there are also more challenging dive sites offshore of the main island such as around Soyak island. Another famous spot is Tiger Reef. This underwater pinnacle is a highlight of the area.

WHY CHOOSE A LIVEABOARD AND NOT RESORT PACKAGE
We get this question a lot from potential divers and we thought we should educate divers the difference between a selecting a luxurious liveaboard over a cheap scuba diving course in a low-end resort. We personally feel that the more you know about what you are getting yourself into, the better the experience. And neither do we believe in providing a package that even our instructors will not enjoy.
Quad Sharing rooms
Most definition of Quad Sharing accommodation provided by Singapore dive centres actually means 2 queen size bed shared by 4 adults. Most of our guests who understand the meaning of personal space do not really like the idea of sharing a bed with another stranger. And did we mentioned the bathroom?
Traveling Time Needed
When you enquired about a Tioman package to start your diving adventure, did the dive centre inform you that it will take an average of 8 to 12 hours to reach Pulau Tioman by a combination of uncomfortable bus / van rides and extremely slow boat transfers, and you hardly get any rest from all the traveling?
Type of resort
The word resort does not really translate to what we understand. You can forget about a bell boy helping you with your luggage, late night room service for food, proper entertainment system in your room. Politely speaking, most resorts in Pulau Tioman are actually rustic chalets rather than a proper resort.
Rush, Rush, Rush
Due to time constraint, your entire experience will be time-based. Everything seems to be a in a rush and your entire weekly is nothing but military planned schedule. The word relaxing does not seem to be provided in any Pulau Tioman Package. And did we also mentioned the 1 instructor to 8 students ratio?
OPEN WATER DIVER
It is recommended that you sign up 2 weeks prior to the commencement of class. This will allow you to collect the manual and finish reading and completing the 5 Knowledge Developments prior to the actual class.
Classes are conducted on any Monday evenings from 6.30pm to 10.00pm. We will be going through with you the missed questions and you will be doing a 4 part quiz and a final exam.
Alternatively timing can be arrange, please check in with us.
For Tioman packages, the pool training will be conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, from 6.30pm to 10pm.
OCEAN DIVES - 4 DIVES
To complete your first basic scuba diving course, you will need to complete 4 scuba dive training dives in order to get certified as a PADI Open Water Diver.
