B&J Diving Centre / Tioman Dive Resort description

B&J Diving Centre / Tioman Dive Resort basic informations

B&J was established in 1986 as “Ben’s Diving Centre”.Today we are one of the largest dive centres in Malaysia and as a PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre, we offer all courses from beginner to instructor level.

Our facilities are fully equipped with the best dive equipment available on the market (primarily Scubapro), which is serviced on a regular basis. The Bauer compressors provide the purest air available (we’re the only dive centre in Malaysia that’s Bauer Pure Air Certified) and we’re also the only dive centre on Tioman that provides Nitrox, Oxygen and Helium tank fills. Both our shops have a well-stocked retail section including PADI educational material, dive gear, t-shirts, accessories and tec diving equipment.

Our dive centre in ABC has a swimming pool, which makes the first step into scuba diving a bit easier for beginners. We’re also operating the B&J Beach Bar for you to relax after a happy day of 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.

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. We operate three dive boats (1 wooden boats and 2 speedboats) and maintain small group sizes for leisure diving as well as PADI courses.

As a PADI 5 Star IDC (Instructor Development Center), B&J is one of the top dive centers in Asia and the very experienced instructors teach all courses from beginner to instructor level. B&J is a Technical Diving Facility, teaching all tec courses up to CCR instructor level.

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.

Dive sites


Labas Island dive site

Labas Island

Labas Island

Labas Island

Experienced/advance divers
Boat dive
Dive depth: 6 - 21m
Visibility: 5 - 30m, average visibility is 15m
Current: none - slight
Water temperature: 27.2 - 29.7℃
Dive type: Cave, Exploratory and Reef
Labas resembles a piece of Swiss cheese due to its abundance of caverns/swim-throughs.
If we head north towards the tail of the island then we come to all the swim-throughs which are only between 6m and 12m deep. At the end of the island we come to a sloping rock formation that brings us down over soft corals, sea fans and barrel sponges to around 21m. From here we head to the other side of the island and then back again through a fairly narrow opening in the rocks. Trust us you'll love it!
Another option is to start the dive by heading south towards the so called head of the island. This is an easy dve with an average depth of less than 15m and a place where we often spot blacktip reefsharks and turtles.

Exploring the labyrinth of swim through or gliding along the dense coral garden, no matter which one you choose, it’s sure to leave a lasting memory.

The resident marine life you can find here are angel fish, puffer fish, barracudas, titan trigger, rainbow runners, butterfly fish, n

Boat dive
Dive depth: 5 - 12m
Visibility: 2 - 30m, average visibility is 15m
Current: none - slight
Water temperature: 27.2 - 29.7℃
Dive type: Night dive and Snorkeling
Our jetty has become an amazing muck dive site over the years and just might be the best muck dive on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
With the debris people throw over board and over the jetty, we’ve built 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 trevallies, 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 a must dive for every keen diver and one of our prime night dive sites. 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.

Dive depth: 8 - 25m
Visibility: 5 - 30m, average visibility is 15m
Current: none - slight
Water temperature: 27.2 - 29.7℃
Dive type: Drift and Reef
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 trevallies. This site is amazing if the current is pushing. Chebeh’s resident marine life is too diverse to list everything here but you’ll definitely see angel fish, puffer fish, butterfly fish, giant wrasse,
