Tioman Island is a slice of paradise located just a 3-hour drive away from Singapore, along the eastern coast of peninsular Malaysia. It is the perfect weekend getaway as you take your Open Water Diver Course. The shallow, calm waters of dive sites near Tioman are ideal for new divers. You will have the chance to explore lush coral forests and experience large schools of colorful reef fish.
