good luck bro,
since u mentioned tuna bay, do try local fried rice tuna (nasi goreng tuna) at Cocohut or Phim - next to Universal Divers....quite delicious.... B-)
if u are diving at tuna bay house reef, don't forgot to bring along your ATM card to try out Bank Rakyat U/W teller.... :D

run,
cha cha is like the cha cha dance, relax relax no rushing....or sabai sabai in thai (santai)
while i was in koh lipe my DM from greece always said cha cha diving meaning relax and easy diving, not to deep not to shallow.... B-)  just nice & i enjoy the dive
we end up with 3 fun divers and 3 DM, one to one, more like private diving........ :D

Hello bro, the trip went good. Clear and sunny all the way (except for the end of the second day). But it was perfect for a dive. I went only for two dives with Universal Divers on their big boat. Two consecutive dives with a start at the Temple of the Sea and followed by a Sugar Wreck. Thousand of yellowtail barracudas and we did penetrate into the tight air pockets area in the holds.

Will write more on it later on. Not so much of pics because i was more on video mood at that time.

Narco, since youve been to Tuna Bay and dived with Universal Divers would you recommend it?  Im thinking of bringing the family to Perhentian in May for a holiday and squeeze in some diving as well, hehehe.  Killing the proverbial 2 birds.  Would you say the resort is suitable for families with young children?  Is there a nice beach for non divers to enjoy?  I stayed at Arwana last year and it had a pretty lousy beach.  I'll never go back there, suffice to say I did not have a good experience although the dives were great.

Does Tuna Bay have shore dives?  Any idea on the charges for a shore dive?

It's too dangerous for shore dives there as boats are zig zagging everywhere....
