Scuba Diving & Snorkeling

Tioman Island is blessed with sparkling blue waters, beaches of fine white sands, and prolific coral gardens fringing the coast. Around the underwater promontory, the water is crystal clear as far down as 100 feet. Within the cool glassy depths is a veritable underwater paradise teaming with a rich variety of corals, fish, and shells. Included among these delights of the deep are the magnificent acropora corals, delicate sea fans, and the alyconarian soft corals. The multi-hued staghorn coral can also be found in abundance. Bright colored fish swim among the corals in flashes of vivid neon hues. Among these are the sweetlips, cardinal fish, parrot fish, wrasses, butterfly fish, damsel fish, and the aggressive anemones fish. The seemingly gentle sea anemones beckons gracefully with soft gentle tentacles. Once within its grasp there is no escape for the marine creatures.

The best known season for diving here is between May and October when the water is at its best. Bring along your underwater camera for some of the best underwater shots of your lifetime. Or just swim amidst the colorful underwater garden and drink in the fascinating sights. The popular spots for scuba diving and snorkeling are along the shallow reefs at Salang beach and the nearby islands of Tulai and Renggis. More on Scuba Diving
