If you're talking bout Dive Centres than my vote will go to "Tioman Reef Divers". To me its kindda big, loads of space, CLEAN and organised and best of all superb service. Two thumbs up for Tioman Reef Divers. I'm not sure if they are the most successful but with service like that.. they are to me.

As for Dive Shops.. I've never been to many, to me most dive shops are almost the same.

If comparing biggest, by comparision, isnt SWV's DC bigger than TRD? SWV dc comes with own locker and separate bc/reg store as well?Service wise, both are same, just walk to boat and board..... But by comparision, TRD feels warmer in service as compared to SWV. My dua sen worth!!

biggest & succesful?? it all depands on wat ur looking for......if i'm not mistaken diff dive shop carries diff brand eg. sealantis carries the most scubapro items and if u wanna look for oxcycheq, u can definitely get it at R&T.

You might be right Scotty..  I really cant comment on SWV coz I've never been there. But you are so right bout the warm service at TRD.

urm both of u aare right.. and in Tioman i thought was B&J. I am not sure whether you guys went to hong kong and look at their dive stores a not. Thailand Bangkok also have. those stores are like boutique and some with 3 storey building... selling the most and comprehensive equipment and various brands. if u see our DS in msia.. most of them are only in 1 lot or half lot.

My hong kong kawan just ask me and i dont know how to answer him..... so i guess i thought just ask u guys lah since u guys always lepak i assume kat DS.

I belum ada uang beli oxycheq lah.. anyhow got pic of Oxycheq?

so my big is big in size and corporation.... and not like kedai runcit.....

not trying to sell SWV, but they do things professionally, briefings are good and informative, but service wise abit lacking..maybe we did not tip at the end of every dive but we did tip all of them lots before we went home...we wanted to compare the professionalism of each and every dm there....the makcik manning the coffee station was good...got nice kuihs everyday...free somemore... ;)

That's true. Snafu's house is like a DS on its own...you have 2 CCRs, lots and lots of other OC dive equipment, some "donated" to him. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

And if you go there, he's got permanent fixtures that can make drinks and wash cups for you too  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Otherwise, the next biggest DS I know is my house. 6 regulator sets for both recreational and tech diving, 2 Oxycheq wings (30lbs and 50lbs)...and other stuff like liftbag, SMBs...masks, fins etc ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
