Why Advanced diving?

Interested to dive in awesome places like Maldives and Sipadan, only to realise that an Advanced certification is required to dive there? One great reason to further your diving education: it gives you access to much more beautiful dive destinations around the world.

The Advanced diver course also allows you to improve your diving skills; better control of your buoyancy and body position will let you enjoy your future dives more. There's also the added advantage of helping you pose better for underwater photos!!

Equipment you will need

Masks and fins are pretty much essential equipment if you want to pursue diving as your hobby. A personal mask is great as you can be sure it will fit and will be comfortable. It's also much more hygienic than rental masks. (For the clean freaks out there)

Having your own pair of fins is like owning a car, both help you move more efficiently and it's just more comfortable to have your own! Personal fins are important as you can choose a more suitable pair depending on your kicking style, leg strength and whether you have 'floaty' or 'weighty' feet.

Opening season: Tioman and Tenggol

You can complete your Advanced Diver course at a few destinations, we would recommend Tioman and Tenggol island. It's opening season for Tioman and Tenggol, corals and marine life are bound to be an amazing sight after months of recovery during the monsoon period.

Dive Amazing | Tenggol Island

Introduction

Tenggol Island is a modest island located on the East Coast of Malaysia in Terengganu. Tenggol is less explored, relatively un-commercialised, and offers a natural experience. Expect a much quieter and idyllic experience compared to other destinations!

Dive sites

Let's jump straight to the scuba diving! Get ready to be wowed by pristine coral formations that come in a myriad of colours. The architecture of the dives sites never fail to surprise: walls, sloping reefs and swim-throughs create a unique world underwater. The sights are beyond imagination, you could encounter schools of fishes on one side and a village of anemone reef on the other. Moray eels are common too! Diving in Tenggol is visual feast; surely it'll feel like paradise.

Tenggol-Diving-2

There are about 20 amazing dive sites around the island, which are appropriate for divers of all experience levels. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the amazing sights and precious memories.

We haven't forgotten the all-time favourite whale shark. Pulau Tenggol is a stopover along the whale shark migratory route, which happens from around August to October annually. Did you know that Tenggol has one of the highest whale shark spotting rates out of all our diving destinations? A 5D4N trip to Tenggol in August over National Day may be a diving holiday to encounter this magnificent creature!

Resort

We will stay at the Tenggol Island Beach Resort, which is very well-maintained and furnished despite the 'natural' feel of the island. Rooms are air-conditioned, complete with bathrooms and hot showers! It is definitely clean and comfortable enough for divers to feel well-rested for another day of diving.

Relax

Diving at Pulau Tenggol is a perfect getaway for city dwellers who are tired of the hectic urban lifestyle. An amazing diving trip can be a much needed break, and Tenggol's peace and quiet will rejuvenate any visitor. You can bring your own hammock, and take a nap by the beach during surface intervals.

Don't have a scuba diving certification, but want to visit Tenggol? We also offer the PADI Open Water Diver Course which goes to Bintan or Tioman Island, and that can definitely be completed before your Tenggol dive trip. You'll be hooked on scuba diving before you know it.
