    kayaking, snookeling and diving

    by Khamal Updated Sep 21, 2007

    Almost all challet here or hotel do have Kayak. You don't need a license to use kayak here. Try for round island. It will be very interesting.

    Like i said before snookeling is a must! You can rent it for only MYR 4-5 per hour or two. The cheapest is in Mokhtar place next to nazri place.

    Diving, I haven't try that in Tioman. You need to attend the course.

    Snorkling

    by dragontml Written Aug 3, 2006
    fishes i saw

    Before leaving for the island, there has been some thought of giving snorkling a try and happy to say that the opportunity was taken, eventhough, ' chicken out ' when putting on the mask n actually putting your head into the water but then again, one gets to see the fishes and coral but just not so clear...

    Snorkeling

    by nadiamishmore Updated Sep 4, 2005

    Oh my God, snorkeling was so awesome. (Not that I had much to compare it with, it was my first experience!) But anyways, the water was crystal clear (I know all this sounds cliche but it's the truth!) and you could see the fishies from your boat. I'm not much of a strong swimmer (what a bummer) so I spent a lot of time worrying about water entering my mask. I am currently taking swimming classes and plan to experience surfing in Hawaii next year. Wish me luck! I went to Tioman with my family. My mom planned the trip under one of Berjaya Hotel's packages. We pretty much stayed within the resort area since there wasn't much to be explored in the village- familywise. I've been told that there's a liqour shop in the village where liqour's superbly cheap. I've forgotten the name of the shop but be sure to look out for a small shop with a loud Chinese man inside ;) You can also go hiking if you wish, but again, since it was a family vacation, we didn't do much adventuristic exploration. Will be holidaying with friends again end of this year so look out for more on this page soon!

    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!

    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.

    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!

  • 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

    Dive Heaven

    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.

    Diving at Tioman is great! There is a lot of diving centres, and even if you do not dive there is a lot to see for snorklers as well.

    Your buddy or friends are crucial in the underwater world. You will realise what firendship means when you are out of air.
