Dive Tenggol Island
Divers will be able to choose their type of diving, ranging from the relaxing to the more demanding sites. For the more experienced divers, who prefer to get their adrenaline pumping, can opt for the more demanding dive sites like, "Tokong Timur", "Tokong Laut" or "Tanjung Api", where strong currents, deeper waters and pelagics prevail.
For those looking for big fish encounters, Pulau Tenggol is located along the whale sharks migratory route normally from August to October every year. This is much anticipated by divers as there are not many places in the world that these whale sharks stay long at a certain place. The surroundings of Pulau Tenggol is rich in its marine life and coral heaven and this might be the reason that whale sharks choose Pulau Tenggol as their playground.
The dive season starts on 1 March and finishes on 31 October every year.
