Dive Perhentian 29th June till 1st July 2012

Post Number:#1  Postby misscherry » Sun Jun 03, 2012 10:43 pm

Hi All!

Looking out for people who may be heading out to Perhentian end of this month.  ;)

I will be travelling via an overnight bus from Singapore on the 28th June arriving Kuala Trengganu (KT) the next morning. Hope to arrive Perhentian accordingly and have some bubbling good time. Will be staying at Flora Bay Resort and taking up PADI DUP Specialty during the stay.

Departing Perhentian about 4pm, Sunday, 1st July for an overnight bus home to Singapore.

Let me know! Willing to share my RM60 per night room with another female diver.  :)

To those who have been to Perhentian via KT, appreciate if someone can share with me the best way to head down to Kuala Besut Pier. If taxi, how much will it cost me?  Unfortunately, the only bus from SG drop-off at KT, being the nearest!

I had just got back from Perhentian.  Did only two dives with Universal Diver. Splendid dives and perfect day throughout. Cant really advise u on how to get to Kuala Besut Jetty from KT. But i bet there will be lots of taxi awaiting for business to take u there. Costing? I have no idea. However, i do know that it would be much nearer from Kota Bahru in Kelantan to Kuala Besut in comparison to from Kuala Terengganu to Kuala Besut although it is just within the state. Call up Flora Bay and see if they can help with the transfer. Some resort do provide the mentioned service.

There is a fast speed boat going from Merang Jetty to Perhentian.

Take a cab or van from Kuala Terengganu to Merang Jetty, then from there to Perhentian.

PM for contact.

Thanks!

Hi guys! Will PM for more information. Due to logistics problems, I am pushing this trip to another time. :(

The whole, KT to Kuala Besut pier one-way transfer is way too expensive and not cost effective to travel on my own from SG. Hence, I have to wait till my other dive buddies are keen to go with me.

Dive trip changed to Tioman instead. Nearer. Less drama. Hehe! :angel13:

Yes, I've been to Tioman. Last year. I enjoyed it though despite the fact tt I was there for training dives. Hehe! So far the best closest to SG. Anyways, I'm on a trip there again for a specialty course, guess it is not that bad. Hehe!

Without any doubt, I love Bali and Philippines the best!  :wav:

Ya, Tioman is somehow the nearest from Johor too, and whenever I miss the feeling of sucking the reg then i will go Tioman.

I am going to Perhentian on 11th- 14th July, and Sipadan on 16th - 21st December, PM me if you interested to join.

I'm desperate for some nitrogen fix as well.  :crybaby2: That is why I have to dive somewhere close ASAP! I figured, might as well I take up a course :icon_study: if I'm gg to MY diving agn.

I can't do dive in July though, work commitment and fasting month. Similar to Dec, year-end closing. :(

I'm planning dive Manado/Lembeh in November (9th - 18th) though. Hehe! Who want to accompany me?

I might be revisiting Sipadan-Mabul-Kalapai next year. Or maybe Pulau Weh or maybe be spending a week in perhentian.

Again, all that for next year.
