JOURNEYS: Diving Deep in Malaysia

Now that the rainy season has come to an end, Tanjong Jara Resort in Malaysia has re-commenced seasonal diving at one of Malaysia's best-kept secrets once. Pulau Tenggol, a 50-minute boat ride from the resort, provides some of the finest diving and snorkelling sites in the world and is the ideal haven for any dive enthusiast.
 
From late March to October, the deep waters of the Terengganu Marine Park come to life, offering a perfect window onto untouched coral gardens and rare species of marine life, providing both an unforgettable introduction for beginners and a wealth of underwater adventures for experienced divers. Over 20 stunning dive sites surround the main island of Pulau Tenggol with depths up to 30 metres guaranteeing sightings of some of the world's most spectacular marine life. Look out for friendly sea turtles, giant manta rays coasting through the ocean and, if divers are lucky, the largest fish in the world, the Whale Shark.
 
The resort's experienced dive instructors will lead guests on a journey of discovery with each unique site offering up a new hidden gem. Diving equipment is available to hire from the Water Sports Centre and a range of PADI licenses, including Open Water Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver as well as Emergency First Response and Rescue Diver courses are on offer. Interested guests can receive the PADI theory book prior to their visit and for beginners an introductory diving class is available.
 

The Tenggol Diver's Escape package includes a minimum of three nights accommodation for MYR 980 (HK$2,433) per room per night, daily breakfast and two days of diving excursions, inclusive of a barbeque lunch. www.ytlhotels.com
