Tioman Dive Centre offers a complete range of courses, all the way from Discover SCUBA Dives for beginners, to the PADI DiveMaster Course which is your first professional rating within PADI.
They are passionately committed to providing dive instruction to the highest standards. This is reflected in the number of students per instructor – they try to limit it to 4-5 students to each instructor. It is also reflected in the duration of our courses. They never attempt to squeeze a course into a shorter length of time than suggested and as such, they do not cut corners and give you, the student, the time necessary to fully master all theory and skills. It is also reflected in the prices, as they believe that good training needs good instructors and sufficient time.
You will also find an emphasis on environmental awareness in their courses, along with the necessary dive skills, as they believe that those entering the water should respect the environment they are learning to experience. In this way they can ensure that the marine environment is preserved not only for our enjoyment but for future generations.
Tioman Dive Centre offers:
- A complete range of PADI courses
- Highest standard of dive tuition
- Good instructor to student ratio (usually max 4-5 per instructor)
