Description for the dive shop B&J Diving Centre - Malaysia

B&J Diving Centre, established in 1986, is a PADI 5 Star IDC Centre, DSAT and IANTD Training facility located on Tioman Island. We're renown in the industry for our high quality standards and have a 100% safety record. We teach all PADI Courses from beginner to instructor level, technical diving and rebreather. Dive trips for already certified divers are organized every day with up to 4 boat dives per day.

B&J Diving Centre is located on Tioman Island in Malaysia, a heaven for experienced divers and those who want to learn scuba diving. It might not be known to many but Tioman Island is home to some of the healthiest coral reefs and a myriad of marine life. B&J has been there from the beginning and has helped maintain these reefs by organizing regular environmental events such as cleanup days, COT (Crown Of Thorns) collections and more. Strategically located in the northern part of Tioman Island in Salang Bay and in Ayer Batang (aka ABC), B&J is close to some of the best reefs that Asia has to offer.

B&J was established in 1987 and has been awarded several times by PADI as a “Project AWARE Environmental Achievement Award Winner”. B&J is also a “Go-Eco Operator” and a “Longitude 181 Ambassador”, promoting environmentally safe diving with a strict no glove and no touch policy. The main pride of B&J lies in its quality and services.

The Malay/German/Swiss management ensures that every dive student and diver receives high quality diver education and a 100% safe diving experience. The dive equipment is well maintained and regularly replaced, the air is tested for purity, the dive boats large and comfortable and the dive groups are kept small. As a PADI 5 Star IDC (Instructor Development Center), B&J is amongst the top dive centers in Asia and the very experienced instructors teach all courses from beginner to instructor level. B&J is also a DSAT and IANTD Technical Diving Facility and provides DAN O2 Provider courses.

B&J is also a pioneer in the education of children. If you like to see some of the most beautiful coral gardens in the South China Sea, a vast variety of tropical reef fish, turtles, sharks, cuttlefish and some of the best spots for nudibranchs in the world, then you shouldn’t miss a visit to Tioman Island. Two Tank dive trips for certified divers are organized daily and you have the choice of additional afternoon boat dives or night dives. If you prefer to take it more relaxed, then you should head for some great muck diving on the house reefs.

Nitrox is readily available. Technical divers are drawn to Tioman to either enrol in more training and to visit some of the most spectacular wrecks in the world, HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales. Next to diving we assist you with transfer and accommodation bookings or invite you to join one of our regular cleanup efforts to protect the ocean.

What a great time I had with B&J in ABC. Their team is fantastic and we dind't only enjoy diving with them but also spent the "after dive" time at their bar over a few drinks. I really liked their new BCDs and regulators though it would be nice to have open heel fins. Diving was pretty awesome and we enjoyed especially the reef formations and the uncountable numbers of nudibranchs that our local dive guide Fahmee found for us. We stayed at their own B&J Dive Resort which is right behind the dive centre. Great clean rooms with LCD TV and by far the best rooms we ever stayed at on Tioman. Can only recommend!

 

Very good school to learn diving

Had a great time in Salang with B&J. Diving was great in late May with some 20m viz and saw 5 turtles! Our guide found lot's of nudibranchs which I simply adore. Groups were small and the boats comfy. Was great that the dive team joined us every night for dinner and a few drinks at the shop or the bar. Will surely go back.
