Clear viz, beautiful white beaches

Agonizing boat ride, but worth it.

Honestly, the main draw over here is the diving. Most of us Singaporeans get our open water dives certified over here ( Those who are suicidal do it in the murky waters of Singapore ) . The shallower reef areas make an excellent spot for checking out and the deeper waters have all sorts of marine life. However, do note that the waters in the deeper...more
The ferry is provided by the Pulau Dayang Dive operator. The boat is also the diving boat we took for the rest of our diving trip there.As we boarded the boat at around 1 am, though tired, we couldn't resist checking out the stars from the deck and ended up falling asleep on the deck.In Singapore, you seldom get to see so much stars.. I still...more
March 27th 2004, when we dive at the Pinnacles, we found a long stretch of abandoned fishing net near the ascending line. A big lobster was trapped in the net. The belly of the lobster was full of eggs. Iris, Kevin, and myself helped to free the lobster. We also manage to save 2 more fish from the net. It was towards the end of the dive and our...more
Jellyfish numbers seem to abound during the morning hours around the Dayang Canal during the month of October. Aside from the more common types of jellyfish, I saw several larger, colourful (and potentially deadly) ones like the pink Lion's Mane Jellyfish. However, the dive sites we visited yielded virtually none if compared to those around the...more

We had 5 dives during our 2 days on the island. Went to the following dive sites:
1) Lang Bay
2) Rayner's Rock
3) Captain Point
4) Telok Jawa
5) Crocodile Rocks
Unfortunately, whenever we are diving, it is raining, therefore the visibility of the dives were not too good ranging between 3 - 7m. The surface current for most dives were pretty strong too.
We spotted a really HUGE nudibranch. It's at least 1.5times the size of my face.. I mean the usual nudibranch I've seen is only approximately thumb size!
Also saw a big school of barracudas, many angelfish, parrotfish, redtooth triggerfish, a huge humphead, small cuttlefish, many species of anemone fish, moray eel, goby, crabs and shrimp and some really beautiful but unidentified fishes.
Equipment: Diving gears
Pulau Dayang is a lovely place, unfortunately, it's not as popular as its neighbor Pulau Tioman. If you are ever in Malaysia and you want to pay a visit to Pulau Dayang, you can contact Planet Scuba.
