Anybody heading East Coast Island this weekend please refer dive center on weather updates.

just came back from tenggol ( 19/3 - 21/3). The surge was bad for the 1st and 2nd day. Took more than an hour from rajawali jetty to the island on a speedboat as the sea were really rough :$. Even the dive werent great either because of the surge. It didnt get better on the 2nd day :crybaby2:. Fortunately managed to get a better dive on the last day. And even the trip back to the main land only took us half an hour  :D Looks like its improving.
