    Scuba diving

    by jetsetjunkie Written Jun 6, 2005

    Some sites have more divers than fish, especially the popular Malang Rock (avoid!)

    The House Reef in front of the dive shop (far left of the beach) has good hard corals and lots of marine life. Moray eels, turtles, squid, even a leopard shark has been sighted here!

    Diving's cheap, around 40 USD per dive.

    Snorkeling

    Crystal clear sea water at Pulau Tulai's beach...

    Of course, you could be much more creature in the sea if you dive. However, if you do not have a dive license, you will still have fun snorkle here.

    There is a beautiful island near Pulau Tioman called Pulau Tulai. About an hour boat ride from Kampung Genting (Pulau Tioman). As far as concered, there's no accomodation on this Pulau Tulai.

    Its beach is white, its sand is flour like, its water is CRYSTAL CLEAR! (refer pictures). Unlike Marine Park, no coral and less fish. Moreover, you have to pay RM 5 as Marine Conservation fee.

    You could see plenty of fishes and hard corals there. I believe if you could dive into the water, that's lot more to discover!

    Giant Clam (left) and Corals

    Snorkelling or diving is a must if you go to Pulau Tioman. However, the conditions are not as good as Pulau Redang as some of the beaches have been artificially refilled with light brown sand which causes the water to become murky, which kills the corals. However, there is still some marine life to see such as the giant clam.

  • Discover Diving

    by littlemissneve Written Oct 8, 2004

    B& J Diving centre

    You can complete a PADI course or just do a day 'Discover SCUBA' FOR RM190.

    Spend the morning learning the equipment on the boat and then get into the water to learn techniques.
    Have lunch (provided) and then do another dive inthe afternoon

    Fantaastic to see all the coral and beautiful fish and if you're luck you might even see a small shark

    A map of Tioman and its islands

    Pulau Tioman and its surrounding islands have such a abundance of marine wild life that you'll have missed the highlight if you don't go on any of these trips.

    What can be found are these marine animals in their natural habitat. You could possibly see their "way of life" such as hunting, mating if you're that lucky!

    Diver-X

    What a great feeling when you're surrounded by gazillions metric liters of water and finally overcome the shortcoming of breathing underwater. Thanks to these regulator & compressed air in the dive tank.

    Live aboard

    This is a typical scene for every live aboard dive trip that we had. Beers, cig & some grass are just some of the pastime & naughty thing that we do when we’re few nautical miles from all authorities.

    Pulau Tulai or Coral Islang

    Tioman has one of the best diving and snorkelling sites i know(theres my disclaimer). But the best of the best is at Pulau Tulai or Coral Island. This is where you can get the Sea Fan and many caverns and tunnels. Its great diving, and a deserted island. What else can i ask for.

    Dive

    If I say Tioman is a dive heaven, I don't think anyone is going to argue with me.

    Why argue, just dive in or be a beach bum at Tioman Island.

    Blur Sotong

    If you’re tired with all those scenery on the surface, no harm going below 2-3 ATM to experience total different kind of scene & creatures live below.
