LOB MV THE ARK (17-20 Aug 12)

A Live-On-Board (LOB) over the Hari Raya Puasa weekend for SGD$899. The LOB was a luxurious experience as there is no need to go through the pain of 4hrs coach ride to Mersing jetty and another 4hrs boat ride to Tioman/Dayang. You can practically sleep peacefully onboard while the boat sails and when you wake up, you are ready to dive. The other advantage of LOB is you get to go dive sites that are further away from resorts, hence less human activities which means better visibility and sightings.

AOWD course at Tioman (10-12 Aug 12)

Tioman accommodation was better compared to Dayang. It has individual toilet in each room compared to shared toilets in Dayang.
