With more unpredictable rain falls, November marks the start of our monsoon. Which temporary puts our Tioman trips to a full stop for 2013.
With the companion of our PADI Open Water Course students and Leisure divers, the Amazing Dive Team started with a wet trip. As though to prepare us for our dives on Saturday, the rain on Friday soaked us in our excitement and laughter. The rain persisted for the rest of the evening and only came to a stop just as our boat berthed by Salang Jetty. Allowing us to proceed comfortably toward Salang Beach Resort without much scrambling.
Saturday morning was beautiful, like a wish come true for a last trip to Tioman this year, the sky was blue with patches of clouds sitting on it. We had an average 12 to 15 metres of visibility during the day with sightings of turtles and ended our night dive at Soyak, bidding good bye to the cat shark! (Yes, we saw a cat shark at Soyak!)
The wind was picking up slightly on Sunday morning and we decided our dive site to be on Malang Rock. It was a right decision with at least 5 turtles waiting for us there where we have them filmed below:

We bid the resort staff and boat crew goodbye with group hugs and much emotions on Sunday noon. Be it the staff, the resort, the food or the dives, we are definitely going to miss it badly this next 5 months!
Starting from this coming week, Amazing Dive will diving in Bintan Island and Southern Riau Islands. With monthly long haul trips to Maldives, Similan Island, Lembeh, Donsol, and many more! Do feel free to leave us a comment to ask for more details for trip destinations!
