hi guys,


im going to perhentian kecil for a 4D3N dive trip with Panorama Diver


This is my 1st time diving with Panorama Diver, hope everything is fine ;)


Anyone going to Perhentian on the same date?


Already booked Panorama Diver via email few weeks ago, no deposit required, just email conversation [-(


The package i took is around rm429 for 5 dives + accomodation, I think this is quite cheap :glasses2:
There will be 5 of us.


I will bring my point and shoot camera along, will share some photos after the trips,hee  :D

I dived with Panorama Divers last year. My experience with them were very good. Their DMs were fun, cheerful & helpful. Had a great time with them. 

The rooms were a little aged, not much sound proof. Was waken up middle of the night by next door european couple's loud 'porno' session after some wild party off the beach. Other than that its great. 

Enjoy your trip!

no footage taken unfortunately.. because the room was aged, so you can head them yell and moan and also the squeeking of the mattress.. lol.. whole night Yes Yes Ah Ah Oh Oh Harder Harder~~ with the back drop of Ngek Ngek Ngek Ngek...
me and my buddy was anxious to check out the hot love bird next morning, both of us was waiting infront of our room for them to come out. Only bump into them when we came back from our morning dive. They greeted us good morning while my buddy teasing them by saying "Yes goood night. *wink*"

Sex during diving trips and in between surface interval is the best. Your whole day on the island is filled up. There is only so much one can do on an island...after a while, the novelty goes away eventually ..after 30 minutes of playing with a baby turtle in a turtle sanctuary, it can actually get pretty boring. Looking for seashells ..maximum, 40 minutes. Lying on an uncomfortable hammock = 25 minutes.  After that, you're bored to death on an island.   


Here's a possible itinerary


8am  : Morning session
9am  : Dive 1
11am : Brunch Session
Noon : Lunch
1230 : aAfter Lunch session
1pm  : Dive 2
4pm  : Dive 3
6pm  : Late afternoon session
7pm  : Night dive
10pm: The Real Night Dive


Your day is full and complete.....
NOTHING GREAT WAS EVER ACHIEVED WITHOUT ENTHUSIASM

hehe so long finally i have time to write something here. Too busy working after the so much fun dive trip:)

well let me start about Panorama diver DC.
The DC is very well organized.
Many new equipment and all equipment looks convincing. The BCD and reg that I use is quite new, same goes with the one my friends use:)

All their dive guide are Instructor. There is only 1 dive master during my visit. I really enjoy diving with instructor name Suhaimi, u can recognize him with long rasta hair:), he show  us all the interesting stuff in every dive site. i feel that i've seen so much marine creatures when diving with him, including super micro barbaganti (my 1st one:-p).

They help you to rinse BCD and reg after last dive of the day, normally I have to do it by myself, quite surprise when they ask me to left my tank so that they can do it for me:)

Free hot drinks and biscuit after dives, hahaha i think having hot drinks after dive is very soothing.
Dive package is the cheapest I've taken so far, its rm429 for 5 dives (all gear inclusive) and accommodation (fan room), worth every penny! :)

The resort:
Please request to have room further up the hill, so you can have more cleaner, quite, and better room. Probably because most of the people would choose room which is near to beach, so the room that further up are less used and have better condition. The room that i stayed have a very clean bathroom, I'm not sure about other room:)
Add another rm50 and you can stay at AC room, but during my time, all AC room is full, so I don't mind staying at fan room. I'm out most of the time btw:)

The food: I don't recommend cafe at Panorama.
By the beach, on the right side of panorama resort, u can find 3 kedai makan. each with yellow, blue and red theme side by side. Highly recommended to go to the RED one. I've tried all 3 kedai. the RED one is the best. Food taste good, the price is same with all other kedai (a bit pricey for me) compared to Tioman.

the place is really happening at night! you can have so much fun:)

The dives:
Had enjoyable and easy dive except at Temple of the sea where current was a bit strong. The place is really nice and beautiful, just that my buddy (my wife) couldn’t fight the current for too long:) So she have to surface earlier while I have to switch buddy to continue diving a little bit longer.
I’ll upload some of my rookie pictures later, coz pictures tell a thousand words:-p

In my opinion, Panorama Diver on Long Beach Perhentian is one of the best dive centers on the island. Yes, it's true they only use instructors as dive guides. Their operation is small but very personal and all the staff are friendly. The best dive sites on Perhentian that you should not miss are 1) Terumbu Tiga, 2) Tokong Laut / Temple of The Sea, and 3) Sugar Wreck (only for Advanced Open Water Diver). Terumbu Tiga is an amazing dive site in any conditions, even bad visibility because of the amazing landscape and topography. Dive with Panorama Diver and you will have a good time.
