Scuba Diving in Nov or Dec

Post by etsuyue » Tue, 17 Feb 2009 6:07 pm

Hi, i'm a female chinese. I'm going to Pulau Redang from 28 Apr to 2 May for a holiday. It's a beautiful island with many good diving sites. I plan to do scuba diving for 2 days but my friends don't dive.

Information on diving in Redang: http://www.scubadiving-malaysia.com/redang.htm

I'm happy to answer all the questions on the trip planning. The resort I'm gonna stay is Laguna Redang www.lagunaredang.com.my/

Thinking of doing the same, maybe around that time. Although only to Redang if the airport is reopened by then...

Consider tioman. It is a better diving destination.

I disagree. I found the diving much better in Redang... Its further from the mainland, so vis is often much better for a start

I dived in Tioman, Similans, and Bali before. Personally, I won't go to Tioman again, nothing much to see there. Will check out Redang in April.. and maybe Sipadan or manado later this year...

I want to go for another diving trip in Nov or Dec. The places I can think of include Sipadan and Manado. Other places can also be considered. I like to do 3 or 4 days casual diving, no liveboard. Anyone interested please PM me, so that we can start the planning early..

Nov and dec are not the best months to visit sipadan or manado. These places are in season between mar and oct period. Might want to consider phuket of similans (which is better for liveaboard). Let me know if you are interested =D
