Hi Divers,

I'm a newbie here....I'm an aspiring Scuba Diver......still lots to learn..yet to have any license.....planning to get one later this year....PADI/somewhere in Tioman is in my mind(recommended by one of my Uncles who might be here  :laughing11:)

My objectives here would be :->
-Looking for new friends with same interest.........
-Learn A-Z about scuba diving (any tips or links or notes to what to learn b4 actually taking the license?)
-Learning about marine life and conservation
-Share Travel trips and also read travel stories on scuba diving/island here

Looking forward to hear more from you guys....I'll spam around, i mean wonder around  :P

cheers,
pilotHans

i think for that budget, tioman can.

redang mostly RM 1600. it should incl everything...free rental of dive gear, tanks, weights, course material (buku-buku) and 2 boat dives. or at least that's what i spent at redang sept 2009.
