What is the diving like?

Located in The South China sea, Tioman Island has warm pleasant waters (28C-30C), so no need to bring your dry suit. Shore diving is sheltered and has little to no current, whilst exploring the outer remote islands such as Chebeh and Labas, the conditions vary on tide time and other weather related effects.The dive sites can range from 10m-14m to 18m-30m plus in depth.

As for actual marine life Tioman boast a wide and varied selection, ranging from small box-fish, nudibranch, huge schools of fusilier, Barracuda, stonefish, cuttlefish, turtles and sharks just to name a few. The marine life has a back drop of hard and soft corals, swim-throughs and cascading volcanic rock formations. There are also a few wrecks for you to explore. Rogers wreck is right in front of Salang bay and KM Sipidan, a Royal Navy Vessel sunk on purpose to benefit local aquatic life is just a short 10 minute boat ride away.
