Anyone know if we are still able to dive in Tioman around mid October?

Thank you. I was told that waters get choppy due to monsoon and would not be able to dive.

pathfinder. Like Expressodupio said. Still ok. Anyhow the viz might be great or not great. Try avoid going during full moon or new moon. The water tide can get rough. Anyhow mother nature is unpredictable. Just check out the tide table and read about spring tide.

don't ask me in details on how to read the chart. all I know yellow and red mean dangerous. More blue is better.

Thank you very much for the info. With the whole red and blue rating of your chart system, I learnt something today. Much appreciated.
