DIVE SITES

Ask a diver about the dive sites on Tioman Island and he will tell you stories about the amazing granite rock formations, the healthy soft and hard corals and a myriad of marine life.

Tioman is indeed blessed with some world class dive sites. On the following pages we can give you some details about each dive site, but there is only one way to get a real impression of them: Come and dive them yourself!

Underwater visibility ranges from some 5m to some 30m, depending on the season, which last from February until November. Best visibility can be expected in spring (February to May) and towards the end of the season (September to November). Rather poor visibility (average 8m) is expected in the summer months (July/August). However, due to the vast amount of macro life, even diving Tioman in less than optimal dive conditions is a highlight.
Currents are generally weak and to not bother us much.

SALANG HOUSE REEF

Salang Bay has two easily accessible house reefs, with a reasonable depth range of 5 to 15 meters. Two perfect locations for the third dive of the day or to update your skills after a long period of inactivity. After you have practiced your skills in the sandy area you can explore the reef either side of the jetty.
Not only divers, but also snorkelers will find big schools of bumphead parrot fish, clownfish, nudibranchs, schools of reef fish or even hawksbill turtles swimming on Back to top of the shallow reef. This is mainly a hard coral reef, built of staghorn, tableBack to top, brain and blue corals. The housereefs are also a macro heaven with nudibranchs, sea horses (if you’re lucky), hingebeak shrimps, saddleback clownfish, moray eels, pipe fish, shrimps and much more.
From February to March you can observe the mating season of our local reef cuttlefish (30cm). During this time they lay thousands of eggs into the reef, which are then again a food source for turtles. A perfect opportunity for underwater photographers to get close and take some unforgettable images.

The house reef is also one of our prime sites for night dives, where you will have an amazing muck dive with sleeping turtles, rabbit fishes, parrot fishes, hunting yellow head moray eels, bamboo sharks and a myriad of craps and critters.

Max depth: 16m Best depth: 6-13m Visibility: 10-30m
Currents: weak Diver level: beginner Distance: 1min

SALANG HOUSE WRECK

Just two minutes away you can find one of the seventeen “Thai fishing boats” which the marine park sank around Tioman. It sits upright on a sandy bottom in twenty meters of water and is nicely covered with soft corals. We access it from the beach by swimming out to about six meters and then follow the sandy slope all the way to the wreck. As soon as you reach the wreck you are greeted by batfish which then lead you to a school of yellowfin snappers. Large groupers are always hiding inside the wreck and you will surely also see some red snappers, lion fish and if you really lucky the harlequin ghost pipe fish or on the way back a demon stinger on the sandy bottom. Nudibranchs are found literally everywhere, as long as you have an eye for them. Our record is 23 different nudibranch species on 1 single dive!
During a night dive this wreck becomes one of our favorite dive sites. The whole wreck becomes alive with all kinds of cleaner shrimps, spider crabs, dragon snails, moray eel, nudibranchs and lion fishes.

If you love macro photography you can’t miss this dive.

Max depth: 23m Best depth: 20-17m Visibility: 10-25m          
Currents: weak Diver level: advanced Distance: 2min

SALANG JETTY

It might sound surprising but our jetty has become an amazing muck dive site. With the debris people throw over board and over the jetty, we’ve built over the years an artificial reef which attracts an abundance of marine life. Shoals of juvenile fish are seeking safety here, which then attracts the big predators such as travellies, garfishes and barracudas. Nudibranchs glide along the sandy bottom while moray eels and shrimp seek shelter in some of the broken of pillars.
The jetty is now one of our prime night dive sites, so a night dive here is an absolute must for every keen diver. You might encounter frogfish, different moray eels, sepia, reef cuttlefish, barracuda, thousands of shrimps and crabs, pipefish, flatworms, nudibranchs, sea slugs just to mention a few.

Max depth: 15m Best depth: 6-12m Visibility: 10-25m        
Currents: weak Diver level: beginner Distance: 2min

ABC HOUSE REEF & GHOST CITY

ABC has an easily accessible and shallow house reef with a depth range of 5 to 12 meters. A perfect location to update your skills after a long period of inactivity, for a relaxed afternoon dive and to spot some rare gobies. At night we sometimes find seahorses in the hard corals, and cuttlefish are common sights.

Another attraction at ABC is what we call the Ghost City. This is a vast artificial reef right in front of our doorstep.

Max depth: 23m Best depth: 20-17m Visibility: 10-25m          
Currents: weak Diver level: beginner Distance: 2min

SOYAK ISLAND

Just of the shore of Salang Bay lies the small and uninhabited island Soyak (also called Soyah). It’s so close to Salang Bay, one could easily snorkel to it from the beach and enjoy its clear fish filled waters.
The reef formation consists of large granite boulders, which are covered with soft corals, fire corals, sea whips, turret (cup) corals, anemones and a large variety of hard corals.
With a maximum depth of 16 meters and an average depth of 10 meters, Soyak is one of our preferred sites for the second or third dive of the day. The close proximity and the diverse colors and marine life make it also one of our prime boat night dive sites.
The resident marine life you can find here include hawksbill turtles, blue ring angelfish, pufferfish, batfish, emperors, napoleon wrasses, titan trigger fish, parrot fish, bumphead parrot fish, butterfly fish, blue spotted stingrays, yellow striped snappers, moray eels, yellowtail fusiliers, yellowtail barracudas, zebra lionfish and lots of nudibranchs.

Max depth: 16m Best depth: 10-15m Visibility: 10-30m
Currents: weak to mild Diver level: beginner Distance: 5min

SOYAK WRECK

If you enjoy wreck diving, then the two Thai fishing boats lying at Soyak Island in 22 and 30 meters are the perfect dives for you. They are densely covered with pink and red soft corals and are home to a giant grouper (1.8m), a school of batfish, travellies, jacks, barracudas, fusiliers, batfishes, stonefish, cobias, nudibranchs and more. For a great experience, dive these wrecks at night and be amazed by the incredible macro world and brilliant colors.

Max depth: 30m Best depth: 22-30m Visibility: 10-30m
Currents: mild to strong Diver level: advanced Distance: 5min


CHEBEH ISLAND NORTH

This rocky granite island has dense tree growth above water and a beautiful coral growth beneath. As you descend you will be greeted by many yellowtail fusiliers and batfish, which might accompany you for the entire dive. This steep sloping reef formation is formed by massive granite rock boulders which are densely covered in fan corals (gorgonians) and black corals. The deeper part (18 to 30 meters) is full of brilliant soft corals, while the shallow part (14 to 5 meters) is full of very healthy hard corals.
There are several swim troughs, and a cavern at 21 meters is home for thousands of tiny glassfish and juvenile barracudas.
Chebeh is well known for its pelagics such as the large schools of barracudas, rainbow runners, black tip reef sharks, white tip reef sharks, jacks and travellies. In the early month of the season we can find mantas and occasionally whale sharks cruising by in the clear plankton rich waters. This site has the surprise affect, if the current is strong you can have one of your best dive ever here. Its resident marine life cannot even be listed but includes angel fish, puffer fish, butterfly fish, giant wrasse, bumphead parrotfish, stingrays, moray eels, lion fish and vast variety of nudibranchs.

Max. depth: 30m Best depth: 15-22m Visibility: 10-40m
Current: mild to strong Diver level: beginner Distance: 30min

CHEBEH ISLAND SOUTH

The South of the island has similar reef and marine life like Chebeh Island North, but with fewer rock boulders. At the beginning of the dive you swim over a sloping hard coral reef before you come to a small wall with lots of resident nudibranchs. After this you reach some small rock boulders which are beautifully covered in soft corals, and some rather narrow swim throughs. Towards the last 10 minutes of the dive you reach a large staghorn coral field with good chances to spot hawksbill turtles, moray eels and cuttlefish.

Max. depth: 22m Best depth: 7-15m Visibility: 10-40m
Current: mild to moderate Diver level: beginner Distance: 30min

BATU MALANG (CORAL ISLAND)

A small rock collection located in front of the white sandy beach of Coral Island is known to the locals as Batu Malang – The Unfortunate Rock. The saga says that the Back to top-rock never touched seawater before and is hence considered unfortunate.

Batu Malang is one of the favorite dive and snorkel sites on Tioman Island. We try to avoid it during the weekend since it is always crowded but enjoy it during the weekdays, when we are often the only ones there.

It’s a perfect dive site for the second dive of the day due to is maximum depth of around 16 meters and an average dive depth of around 10 meters. Batu Malang is blessed with an abundance of hard coral such as staghorn, table Back to tops, potato, flower corals and coral bommies. Since it’s so shallow, you have brilliant light and therefore amazing colors. Many of the sponge eating hawksbill turtle are seen here; the reef cuttlefish (sepia) make use of the potato coral reef to secure their eggs and clown anemone fish (Nemos) are found literally everywhere. On changing tides one can drift over whip coral covered bottom, where moderate currents bring in barracudas and lonely cobias.
Batu Malang is also our choice for discover scuba students because of its shallow reefs and the guaranty to see a large variety of marine life such as; turtles, cuttlefish, lion fish, moray eels, black tip reef sharks, parrots, wrasses, blue dotted stingrays, scorpion fish and butterfly fishes just to name a few.

Max depth: 16m Best depth: 6-12m Visibility: 10-30m
Currents: mild to moderate Diver level: beginner Distance: 30min

FAN CANYON (CORAL ISLAND)

This dive site stretches out of Genting Bay on the famous Coral Island and slops down to a maximum depth of around 30 meters. The general dive plan asks to swim along the lower reef edge to about 22m where you will find a beautiful some massive granite rock boulders covered so densely in different soft corals that you can’t even see the rock anymore. In between some of those rocks lies Fan Canyon, which got its name from the dozens of gorgonian sea fan corals which cover the side of the rocks. We do not allow divers to swim inside the canyon to protect these fragile corals.
At the deeper part of the dive site we find on almost every dive large scorpion fish and dozens of nudibranchs.
At 16m there is nice (but narrow) tunnel worth swimming trough because of its thousands of tinny anchovies. From here we swim back into the Genting Bay to do our three minute safety sBack to top at 5m over the beautiful hard coral reef.
Fan canyon has some of the greatest variety of nudibranches and flat worms among all dive sites and we still find new ones on almost every dive, so keep your eyes open and your macro lens on the camera.
The resident marine life you can find here are angel, puffer, bat fishes, emperors, titan trigger, parrots, butterfly, napoleon wrasse, nurse sharks, scorpions, stingrays, yellow striped snappers, moray eels and zebra lion fish.

Max depth: 30m Best depth: 15-22m Visibility: 10-35m
Currents: mild to moderate Diver level: advanced Distance: 25min

ONE TREE BAY (CORAL ISLAND)

This hidden spot is just around the corner of Fan Canyon on Coral Island
It is fantastic as a second dive site especially when the south wind blows, since we are sheltered here. This easy dive leads us along the rocks which are sloping down to about 16m. The shallow part is densely covered in hard corals and the cracks and crevices in the rocks are a perfect hiding place for some giant moray eels. Whereas the deeper part is frequently visited by bumphead parrot fish and spanish mackerels who swim along some of the loosely lying boulders.
The currents make a very big difference – if the current is mild then little fish is out and abound, while you can have a very exciting time here of the current blows.

Max depth: 20m Best depth: 14-20m Visibility: 10-20m
Currents: mild to moderate Diver level: beginner Distance: 35min

KADOR BAY (CORAL ISLAND)

As we look out of the Blue Lagoon (also called Mangrove Bay) of Coral Island, we find Kador Bay on the right side of the lagoon. This spot is fantastic for our second dive and lets us glide along the rocks which are sloping down to about 16m. The general dive plan here is to dive down to the end of the plato were we can find big green moray eels and stone fish hiding in the small overhang at 18m. With more experienced diver we drift down along the 22m line where we can encounter barracudas and turtles quite frequently. After about 20min we’ll have to start going back to the swallow reefs to finish off our dive around coral covered rock boulders. Many times we get surprised by the size of the coral lobster which we see here or by the occasional napoleon wrasse swimming by.
Kador Bay can also be an amazing drift dive, if the current is right. Then we literally fly out of the bay and around the corner of Coral Island – an amazing experience.

Max depth: 24m Best depth: 14-20m Visibility: 10-30m
Currents: mild to strong Diver level: beginner to advanced Distance: 35min

LABAS ISLAND

This island resembles a piece of Swiss cheese due to its abundance of caverns.
Labas has two dive sites to offer, the head or tail with both being equal challenging and simply fascinating. Swimming through the labyrinth of swim throughs or glide along the dense coral garden at 18m which ever you choose both will leave a lasting memory. Labas with its overgrown rock formation makes it an easy dive, just lazily swim along the fan and soft coral or visit the remains of a Japanese fishing boat which is a great place for snorkeling.
The resident marine life you can find here are angel fish, puffer fish, barracudas, titan trigger, rainbow runners, butterfly fish, napoleon wrasse, nurse sharks,  black tip sharks, stingrays, moray eels, lion fish and a good variety of nudibranches.

Max. depth: 24m Best depth: 12-18m Visibility: 10-40m
Current: weak to mild Diver level: beginner to advanced Distance: 40min

SEPOI ISLAND

The small Sepoiisland is the furthest distance away from Salang, hence it is not frequently visited.
The rock formation on the north western side is the best with a good coral growth and lots of large Brain corals.  Here we can find several nurse sharks sleeping underneath them, they usually measure around 1m in length. Or observe the six banded angel fish gliding graciously along the corals of sepoi.
Because we don’t visit this site that often it is always refreshing to come here and explore the abundance of reef fish such as lion fish, scorpion fish, green and brown moray eels, jacks, nurse sharks and countless of butterfly fish.

Max depth: 16m Best depth: 12-15m Visibility: 10-20m
Currents: mild Diver level: beginner Distance: 50min

TIGER REEF

A submersed pinnacle between labas and sepoi, it starts at 9m and slopes down to 22m. This is one of the major highlights of Tioman’s under water world.


The rock formation is simply amazing because everything is covered by soft coral, hard corals and barrel sponges. Since Tiger Reef is not frequently dived, you can find very little human impact on the corals.  Due to the stronger currents which you can expect here, you can encounter large schools of jacks, mackerels, yellow fin barracudas and rainbow runners on almost every dive. With all these giant boulders around experienced divers can zoom in and out the canyons to avoid the strong currents. The resident marine life you can find here are angel, puffer, bat fishes, emperors, titan trigger, parrots, butterfly, napoleon wrasse, nurse sharks, black tip sharks, stingrays, moray eels and lion fish.

Max. depth: 24m Best depth: 16-20m Visibility: 10-40m
Current: moderate to strong Diver level: experienced Distance: 45min

GOLDEN REEF

Golden Reef is situated next to Tiger Reef. It’s a smaller reef with many rock boulders, covered in amazing healthy fans, hard and soft corals. The reef and marine live are comparable to that of Tiger Reef: Angel Fish, Puffer Fish, Bat Fish, Emperors, Titan Trigger Fish, Parrot Fish, Butterfly Fish, Napoleon Wrasse, Nurse Sharks, Black Tip Reef Sharks, Stingrays, Moray Eels and Lion Fish.

Max. depth: 24m Best depth: 16-20m Visibility: 10-40m
Current: moderate to strong Diver level: experienced Distance: 45min

MAGICIAN ROCK

One of our Back to top dive sites lies right in the middle of the ocean, resulting in strong currents. That’s why this dive is more for the experienced ones. Rarely dived, it is a wonderful large reef with an abundance of marine life. The coral diversity is fantastic, you can find some of the largest Gorgonian Sea Fans on Tioman Island, marine life will also keep you thrilled throughout the dive. Giant Moray Eels, hunting Jacks and Trevallies, Green Turtles and shoals of reef fish are almost guaranteed. Normally we jump in up current and drift one time along the large reef. Average depth is 20 meters but on the edge of the reef it slopes down to beyond 30 meters.

Max. depth: 32m Best depth: 16-25m Visibility: 10-30m
Current: moderate to strong Diver level: experienced Distance: 25min

NORTH POINT

Only dived by us, it is a pristine dive site on the northern tip of Tioman Island. There are to ways to go, either you dive to your right over a hard coral field to a granite wall, or to your left, over the coral covered boulders. Whichever way you go, it is a truly nice experience; Big Moray Eels, Napoleon Wrasses, Turtles, Angle Fish and an enormous diversity of Nudibranchs can be found.

Max depth: 23m Best depth: 8-15m Visibility: 10-25m           
Currents: weak Diver level: beginner Distance: 20min

TERDAU

Terdau is already on the Eastern side of Tioman Island and rarely dived. It's a rather shallow dive site with lots of hard corals where we can expect to see plenty of small reeffish with the occassional Jack or Travelly passing by. Another heaven for nudibranch fans.

Max. depth: 20m Best depth: 8-16m Visibility: 10-25m
Current: moderate to strong Diver level: beginner Distance: 30min

LOBSTER BAY

Lobster Bay is rather seldom visited by us since it's on the East side of Tioman pretty close to Juara Village. This site has some small walls and large granite boulders which are not very densely covered in corals due to the fact that it's hit annually by the monsoon waves. It's called after the number of lobsters you can find between the rocks and we often find schooling travelly hunting in the currents.

Max. depth: 20m Best depth: 8-16m Visibility: 10-25m
Current: moderate to strong Diver level: beginner Distance: 35min

KM SIPADAN WRECK

KM SIPADAN is a former Royal Navy warship that was put in service in 1964 under the name KD Sri Sarawak. It was renamed later to KM Spidadan and was decommissioned from Navy services in 2005. The Marine Maritime Enforcement Agency decided to make it an artificial reef and sunk it at the Sawadee dive site on 29th March 2012.

The Sipadan is some 31meters long and 4.5meters wide and has been stripped of all weapons and it's engine before it was sunk. It makes a perfect wreck diving site, especially if your are Nitrox certified since it allows for longer bottom times. Divers with Wreck Specialty and/or technical divers can even penetrate the ship!

Max depth: 30m Best depth: 25m Visibility: 5-20m

SAWADEE WRECKS

These two former Thai fishing boats lie in a maximum depth of 30 meters, with a minimum depth of about 16 meters. They lie literally next to each other and are connected by a line. The coral growth on the wrecks is not exceptionally good, but its fish life can be very attractive. Depending on the season the wrecks are a nursing place for several different species of juvenile fish like yellowtail barracudas and fusiliers. Next to other reef fish and nudibranchs you might be lucky and spot a stonefish, a Lionfish, a crocodile fish or even a small frogfish.

Max depth: 32m Best depth: 20-30m Visibility: 5-20m          
Currents: weak Diver level: experienced Distance: 15min

MARINE PARK

Right in front of the Tioman Marine Park lie more than 10 small shipwrecks. All of them were fishing boats which were confiscated for illegal fishing and then cleaned and sunk around the island. Each wreck is attached to the next with a line so finding your way here is not a problem. Visibility is usually rather low and also the fish life is not that fantastic. Still a nice little dive to finish the afternoon.

Max. depth: 18m Best depth: 10-16m Visibility: 8-20m
Current: mild Diver level: beginner Distance: 15min

PIRATE REEF

Pirate reef is a shallow hard coral reef betwen ABC Bay and the main village Tekek. DHL sponsored some artificial reef concrete blocks back in 2006 which have since become home to plenty of fishlife. Another small wreck lies right next to this dive site and it makes a beautiful and easy third dive of the day.

Max. depth: 18m Best depth: 8-14m Visibility: 10-25m
Current: mild Diver level: beginner Distance: 25min

RENGGIS ISLAND

This small island lying opposite the berjaya resort has a good hard coral diversity.
Renggis fringing reefs are shallow making this a good place for a second dive. The usual dive plan is to enter the water at the easterly site and swim around the island at a depth range of 12-15m. The coral formation is mainly tableBack to top, stack horn, bommies, brain corals, cabbage and potato corals on the rather flat bottom. You could take a detour to the two Thai fishing wrecks which lay in 20m of waters if you prefer deeper dives, but mostly we cover the back part of the island in search for its resident Black tip sharks and green turtle. This dive spot is simply amazing for snorkelers.
The resident marine life you can find here are angel, puffer, bat fishes, emperors, titan trigger, parrots, butterfly, bumphead parrot fishes, nurse sharks, scorpions, blue dotted stingrays, yellow striped snappers, moray eels, yellowtail fusiliers and zebra lion fish.

Max depth: 16m Best depth: 6-12m Visibility: 10-30m 
Currents: weak to mild Diver level: beginner Distance: 35min.

TANJUNG GEMUK

Tanjung Gemuk as a small half island in front of Paya Bay. Is a shallow dive sites ideal for beginners or for a third dive of the day when we return from the islands further south. It's mainly a hard coral reef with smaller fishlife, but we regularly spot turtles, barracudas and jacks here.

Max. depth: 14m Best depth: 6-8m Visibility: 10-20m
Current: mild Diver level: beginner Distance: 40min

TOKONG BAHARA

Tokong Bahara are two tiny islands sticking out of nowhere some 90 minutes south-west of our dive centres. Due to the distance they are seldom dived and we only go there on special requests. The sites are pretty shallow but nicely covered in hard and soft corals and plenty of anemones. Blacktip Reefsharks and Nursesharks are common sightings here.

Max. depth: 22m Best depth: 8-16m Visibility: 10-30m
Current: mild to moderate Diver level: beginner Distance: 90min

BATU SEPOI

Batu Sepoi is another dive site that's rarely visited. It's located far south and it takes almost 2 hours just to get there. The trip however is worth it since you can expect to see a vast variety of marine life including pelagics such as Barracuda, Sharks and Jacks.

Max. depth: 24m Best depth: 10-18m Visibility: 10-30m
Current: moderate to strong Diver level: advanced Distance: 2 hours

BATU JAHAT

Batu Jahat is far south on Tioman Island. It's a small little rock (Batu means rock) sticking out of the ocean and being home to a myriad of small critters like nudibranchs but also healthy corals and pelagics.

Max. depth: 24m Best depth: 10-18m Visibility: 10-30m
