About this school :
Tioman Dive Centre has been operating for more than 20 years. The dive centre started its life in 1993 under the name Scuba Point. Tioman Dive Centre was adopted as a new name at the begining of 2002, following a change in management and a change of location.
Initially managed by Dr Tarek Amin (known to his friends as Pako), Julian Hyde and and Yeen Lee took over the operation in 2002. In 2009, a new owner, Katie Yewdall continued to enhance the centre’s environmental focus. Katie took a back seat in 2012 when co-owner Rosie Cotton came onboard. Rosie now manages all operations at the centre.
We focus on three areas:
Leisure diving: For divers who are already certified, Tioman has a range of varied dive sites, each with its own characteristics. Close by we have shallow reef dives with lots of fish and a wide range of corals. Further awayare more challenging deeper rock and cavern sites. Sharks and Turtles can be seen frequently at a lot of our dive sites, making Tioman an ideal location for both beginners and the more experienced diver.
Environmental awareness: We encourage our divers, in all dive courses and during dive briefings, to treat the environment with respect. There are various active environmental efforts here on the island, notably Reef Check and Cintai Tioman. TDC is a Reef Check training facility, where you can gain your Reef Check EcoDiver Certification and we also play host to a wide range of independent researchers from Universities around the world.
