You know if you want to dive in Malaysia during the monsoon season, Pulau Jarak could be the only wise choice. Some said the water vis wouldn't be good but I have been to Pulau Perhentian and Tioman with also very bad visibility around 3 to 5 m. I seen many beautiful fishes in Jarak such as honeycomb moray eel, box fish, blue tooth trigger fish, moorish idol, and etc. Hey! Not too bad you know . . .
Delicious Food ..... Cheese Curry, Tepanyaki Fish, Cuttlefish, Oster Sos mushroom... etc... a lot more.... You won't what you miss....This is the first dive trip that I really eat a lot.... Have to keep fit while come back to KL
Favorite Dish: Oster Sos Mushroom, Cheese Curry Fish, Cuttlefish.....etc.
There are not much night life on the boat...
Watching the sunset.... singing.....thats all we do.....
Dress Code: Beach wear
Toiletries and Medical Supplies:
It's a live on board trip, for those who's not very comfortable with rocking platform, be prepared with sea sick pills.
And for those who has weak stomach like me, get some ENO with you, it'll save you for the whole trip.
Favorite thing: Of course I have enjoyed the diving and fishing at Pulau Jarak. The water visibility was not superb but it's the first time I saw blue tooth trigger fish and there were so many of them, really amazing fish. Too bad I didn't take too many photos them, because my camera lens was fogged when got really close to them. Fishing was fun too, have you ever seen anybody catching 2 fish with 1 pole at the same time? We put 2 hooks on the line and with the right skill, it was possible. And not to forget the boat 'Kaleepso' we're on was fantastic, especially the food they were brilliant, Mary was a great cook.
