The majority of international travellers are by now aware that Tioman is surrounded by a crystal-clear sea. But apart from the great numbers of regular scuba divers, tec diving aficionados from around the world are drawn to our waters in particular, because Tioman offers awesome reefs, of both the real live coral and the artificial kind, that are ideal for tec divers to explore.
Tioman's magnificent underwater world
The reason some of our deeper reefs are a major draw for tec divers isn't only because of the wealth of underwater wildlife that inhabit these sites, but also because of the sites' year-round mild water temperature and currents.
What is tec diving? Tec diving is a form of scuba diving that goes beyond the more conventional recreational scuba diving boundaries, particularly when it comes to water depth and total time spent underwater. Whilst tec diving exposes the diver to higher risks than recreational diving, the rewards of tec diving are numerous.
