Tenggol Island is part of the fabulous Terengganu Marine Park and is reached in approximately 45 minutes by speedboat from Tanjong Jara.
The island is famous for its tropical jungle, sandy white beaches and most of all, the untouched coral gardens and rare species of marine life which makes it one of the best places for diving in Malaysia.
There are over 20 dive spots which offer unforgettable under water experiences for beginners and exciting adventures for experienced divers. The Water Sports Centre has all the equipment you will need and the experienced dive instructor can even certify you for your PADI Open Water Diver licence as part of your holiday.
If you would like to get the PADI licence, the book can be sent to you directly so you are able to study the dive theory at home rather than while on holiday.
The dive season starts on 1 March and finishes on 31 October of every year.
Sightings of eagle rays, black-tipped reef sharks and large barracudas are common. There are also sightings of large pelagics, whale sharks (pictured above) and manta rays generally at the beginning and end of the diving season (March, April, September, October) which is the best time to dive at Tenggol Island.
