    Thank you to the team and the management for the excellent service and the understanding!Initially i made a booking for 4 divers and due to unforseen events, 2 divers couldnt make it at the very last minutes. Which my cousin needs to report duty in Sabah immidiately.Viking have decided to refund in full for 2 divers since they are sisters and its a national called up.Salute!Just sharing they have big boats, friendly instructor and most importantly, well maintained rental equipment.Thank you again!

    I dived Tenggol Island with Viking Scuba on 22 & 23 August 2020 and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.The communications and booking was dealt with very efficiently including assisting me with finding accommodation as the Permata Resort was fully booked (thanks Nadeera).On arrival I was greeted by friendly staff who completed the registration promptly.The diving is conducted from good quality boats with onboard toilet, tasty lunch and nice touches such as individual towels provided.Good pre-dive briefings by experienced guides / instructors with emphasis on safety.I enjoyed 6 dives with a memorable experience of seeing a whale shark on the first dive.Many thanks to all the staff of Viking Scuba, I will be back to dive with you again.I would 100% recommend Viking Scuba to anyone wishing to dive Tenggol Island.

    I had a great time finishing my Open Water Course with Viking Scuba. The staff assisting me from the beginning when I was planning my course are so friendly and understanding. They were quick to reply, polite and professional from the start. The whole course was smooth and satisfying – didn’t had an issue at any time. Lunch was great and amenities during the dive/on the boat was no issue for me too. My instructor, Boo, is a wonderful instructor. He is patient and is a mix of friendliness, fun and professionalism which is great if you intend to learn and have fun at the same time. I was somewhat a solo female traveler/student, so lessons with Boo I felt taken care of, safe and comfortable.

    If you’re planning on doing your OWD or even fun dives I would 100% recommend Viking Scuba Tenggol to everyone. My diving experience was amazing & SO ENJOYABLE alongside the friendly crew members! Diving can be quite intimidating at first but I felt safe and in good hands under the guidance of instructor faris (boo) 10/10 for their service, no doubt would do it again with Viking Scuba Tenggol !!

  6. lavanian2014

    Did my leisure with the viking scuba team and the experience has been amazing. Nadira has been accommodating right from the beginning and Syu has attended to us so warmly. DM Aiman was extremely kind and has a lot of patience. Not forgetting my siblings dive instructor Mat Yiee who made it possible for them to complete the OWD.Thanks Hafiez, and Captain of Lady Fatima for an amazing experience.Thank you Viking Scuba for your amazing service and hospitality. We will be back!!

    I did my advanced open water training with Viking Scuba, and loved every minute of it. Every dive trip was well organised, staff is super friendly and fun, the boats are spacious and well maintained and lunch was delicious. Boo, my trainer, is knowledgable and patient, and I would dive with him again without a doubt. Highly recommended!!

    A great dive centre that deserves recognition for their 5-star service. It is the only dive centre in Malaysia (at least among all dive centres that I have been to) that will handle all your diving equipment throughout the entire diving trip. The dive boat is spacious and well maintained, it looks like new all the time. The food served during the surface interval are delicious. All the divemasters are so friendly and responsible. They not only handle your diving equipment with care, but they will also be putting a lot of effort to make sure all your dive with them are memorable. Thanks to the divemaster Kamal who tirelessly scout around for the whale shark, that make our dive trip so memorable. Finally, we saw Ms Bella right in front of our eyes. Although meeting a whale shark depends on luck, but with all the motivated divemasters diving with you, you seriously double or triple the chances. By the way, we only met a whale shark in this second dive trip (total of 12 dives) for 2 years period. Please be patient.A 5 star dive centre in Malaysia that you must try at least once for your diving journey.

  11. davidsV298RZ

    Definitely a five star Padi Dive Center! Farris (Boo) and Kamal were the best dive masters ever! Trip was great we received 5 star service.We even were sent great pictures and Videos of the 3 dives we made which was thoughtful. Recommend any time your in Tenggol to dive look up the Viking team, they will take good care of you! We can’t wait to go back for some more great diving!

  12. mdanialism

    From the dive center, they will take my equipment, bring to the boat, assemble, disassemble, wash and dry after the trip for me. very convenience. Dive boat is spacious. The food during surface interval very nice. Dive crew was very helpful. My only regret is cannot meet Lucy and Bella ..

  13. NYTM

    I had been wanting to dive Tenggol for some time, but wasn’t keen on staying on the island – heard about the sandflies and salty tasting drinking water…Viking seemed to be the better rated dive operator for Tenggol, operating from the mainland (Kuala Dungun), and so I decided to book the 2D/3N trip (6 dives) and the accommodation with them. I went with a dive buddy.Overall, a pleasant experience. The team is friendly, quite accommodating, and relaxed. Their boats are clean and adequately outfitted for a full day’s diving – toilet, food and drinks, towels, etc.The one thing that could be further improved, is the arranging of the transport of the divers and equipment from the dive center, to the jetty (about 10-15 minutes drive).Other than that, we were happy with Viking and would recommend them to others.

  14. hazymar

    My husband and i had a diving trip to Tenggol with this Viking Scuba. They are very organized and took a great care of the customers. The DM, Aiman, was a very good DM. He ensured the safety of all divers, at all times. He also has a very good eyes, especially on spotting the macro creatures.Rest assured, we will come back, to meet the whale and the devil ray.Good job! thumbs up!!

  15. BadrulHishamH2

    The staff are friendly & helpful. They are very organized & stick to the schedule. Will definitely come back to dive again with u guys.

  16. aizatizmi

    All the crews and captain are very friendly.Was going to Pulau Tenggol in order to get my PADI Open Water License.Managed to dive at Turtle Point and Lost World dive sites.Got toilet also in the boat.They even provide you with seasick pill in case if you needed one.

  17. Lisa R

    Had a great couple of days diving with Viking – the staff were all patient, friendly and knowledgeable and the equipment was excellent quality – great value – definitely would recommend them to anyone going diving in the area. There is lots to see around the island as well.

  18. janethan01

    Superb dive operator, professional from start to the end. Got my PADI Open Water cert with them and totally loved the whole experience! Definitely recommending them to anyone wanting to learn diving 🙂

  19. roryjdoyle

    Two great days of scuba from this PADI scuba diving club. Good boat, dives, lunch and friendly staff.

  20. riefalynda

    Their location at PERMATA Resort. They will send you to the boat with HILUX and here goes your lucky days! The crew Kamil and Kamal were the BEST. The lunch was served in the boat(Lady Fatima) while having a surface interval after 2nd dives. Back to land with satisfaction after meeting their pet ‘Lucy’ .

  21. SharifahLaila

    A favourite dive centre when visiting tenggol. Excellent service, premier equipment and good hospitality.Highly recommended!

  22. Claytonneilson

    5 Stars all the way. ️ ️ ️ ️ ️ Aiman and Karmil are super-dive guides. Shared with us all the video and photos they had been taking of us was lovely of them too. Captn Mike brings the smoothest waters and made it easy on the boat. Nedira has the diver registration and gear selection handled without any mucking around. Viking Scuba is our go to dive operation for Tenggol island now every time. I’ve dived with others. They were also good. But Viking is the best. Great experience all the way. Thank you! By the way… the diving is spectacular!

  23. amire_sapien

    Viking team is absolutely great. Very well organized and well equipped. My dive trips with friends was really worth it. Shout-out to DM Boo for his guidance, patience and energy through out our 6 dives. Professional, safe and always show us impressive amount of underwater life. Thanks for taking us to another level of adventure too. Finally, many thanks to Kamil, Jimmy, Kamal, for going beyond their duty in helping one of my friends to find his underwater camera that lost during safety stop on our last dive. Kudos! *we very thankful for that. May god bless u guys*Overall Tenggol is beautiful + Viking team is awesome = complete fun dives! If you wanna know how 5stars dc treats you, go dive with Viking Scuba.

  24. teckjong

    From the very first time I step in their dive centre, I knew its gonna be a live changing experience. Took my OW, AOW and my Nitrox course here and it was never a disappointing decision. Its literally a school where u LEARN and really enjoy your learning process! Their equipment is top and serviced super regularly and always have spare on board in case of any emergency! The moment i step into Glenmarie branch for my OW theory session, I was greeted with a “sexy voice” by a sexy man, Brudder Han himself! Best man to be around!! His humour, personality and knowledge is out of this world! Hook him up if you need your gear checked! When I reached Dungun for my open water sessions, I was greeted by the kindest man I know, Kamil! He literally feeds all the cats in Terengganu and some say KL, jkjk, but he is the kindest and most patient instructor with a smile that kills. Learnt my AOW with him and it was GREAT! Kamal, my OW instructor! This man has the eyes of an eagle underwater, he could seriously spot the smallest of stuff!! Look for him is you wanna see what weird stuff the reef of Tenggol has to offer. Coming to the best boatman, Brudder Jimmmmmyy! knows the waters like the back of his hand! The boat will be different without him on board, our papa of Lady Fatima! Our brother Mark, another boatman who is alwayyyyyyss smiling NO MATTER what!! Coming to our beloved DM, Boo, u want to be guided by him underwater, trust me!! With his experience in the waters of Tenggol, u will surely to have the time of your life! Last but not least, the man behind The Vikings it , Mat Yie, my Nitrox instructor, which IMHO the best man to teach this as he is the techical dive junkie of the bunch! He might be the man with very little words, but try to spark a convo with him, u will learn hella lot of stuff. A very inspiring man to be around. Viking, truly my home away from home. Its a place i come to let all of city life away for a while. Its THE place to come if you would love to dive Tenggol. But do note, its a full board dive and no night or shore dive to be expected. But fear not, there is a toilet on board with freshwater, and the food served on board, is superb!! Note, the service on board is 5 star, they change your tanks for you after every dive!!!! Conclusion, just drop by whenever you feel like diving Tenggol, u will thank me later! Lastly, proud to have met you guys, me bro from another mom! do keep up the service and dive safe!! See you guys again. Love, Mohd TJ

    The team at Viking Scuba were awesome. They helped us book accommodation and two days of diving (6 dives total). Everything from start to finish was really professional and well organised. The guides and boat crew were well informed, friendly – always willing to share stories and experiences. We’ve dived a few places around Malaysia and loved the diving in Tenggol – great visibility and beautiful reefs.

  26. Muhamad T

    Very friendly people They are really passionate and professional.Dry towels provided after the dives. Delicious lunch served on the boat.

  27. TracyT1841

    Thank you to Mat Ye, Kamal and Boo for the awesome dive experience. We were there from 9th-12th Aug. The crews and Mat Ye were there to ensure we had a good and safe dive, every dive. Very friendly and very fun people. Overal me and my group really enjoyed diving with them. Would definitely go back again and highly recommend them to friends! Keep up the good work. Hope to see you guys soon.

  28. 410azfara

    I went to Viking for 3 days Open Water Course. My friend recommended me this dive operator. The crew are very friendly,helpful and knowledgeable. Instructors and Dive Guides know their stuff. The crew manage the trip very well. The boat configuration specifically made for diver, It is clean with toilet, lunch on boat is good.tea, coffee,soft drink included. Boat captain is funny guy.

  29. Dania A

    I have dived with Viking twice and as of now they are my go to place for diving around Tenggol Island! 🙂

  30. akmalasyiqiena

    We dived with them (our DM was Kamil) for 2 days (6 dives) over the weekend on 30/5-1/7. We arrived on 29/6, and Kamil was already waited for us and matched us with the right equipments that day and he put them together so no hassle the next morning. The equipments were “shining”, very clean and of course functioning well. Their equipment store also was clean. We started the next day at 8am, departed to Tenggol with 40-min boat journey. The boat was spotlessly clean and comfortable, complete with toilet, hot water for tea and coffee, cold soft drinks, dry towels and first aid kit. Breakfast and lunch were provided with banana, and food was tasty. They have nice music sense too Sadly it was raining the day before so the visibility was quite bad and the water was quite cold. But Kamil the divemaster was amazing! He was attentive to our problems, always showed us things esp those nudibranches, and he took great pictures. He did everything for us so all we had to do was get into the boat, wear the equipment and dive and enjoy. The next day, there were only 2 of us with another 1 open water student and his instructor on the boat. Kinda like private trip. Kamil was amazing again, he even taught us basic underwater photography, point to us the right angle and everything. We went to quite hard dive spots with strong current and choppy surface and I had my first drift dive, wreck dive and deep dive (reaching 30m) that day, and it was awesome.I totally recommend them, and if I return to Tenggol, I will surely dive with them again. Excellent!*attached here are pictures by Kamil. I’m not a good poser and I hate posing as well so that’s kinda the best photo of me. And huge beastly looking morray eel in the shipwreck.

  31. ryohtokuda

    All members at Viking Scuba are very experienced and cool!! Visited during a first week of June 2018 and weather and water condition are amazing, visibility maximum 20m!! Really enjoyed ride the big jeti and every factors, food, safety, dive points, for diving are fulfilled. I will go back there shortly to dive in the beautiful ocean and to see wonderful team!!

  32. Fikiwiki

    Just went there recently with a girl friend of mine for a supposedly ‘day trip’ but we extended for an extra 2 nights due to the drive and tiredness of diving.Diving staff are great. Love the DM (Boo) who constantly stood by and helped out my friend as she only logged less than 10 dives so he was very attentive to her. He’s also super funny and nice when we were making fun of her (and each other). Boat captain is funny too and one of the boat assistants is super amazingly sweet and nice. I would super love to give this place a review of 5 stars however I did not like the admin staff at their hotel. Jen (my friend) and I was only able to reach the hotel late as it was a Friday afternoon from KL and it was raining heavily. I rang her up earlier during the day to tell her we will reach before midnight and SHE INSISTED RUDELY on the phone that “YOU HAVE TO GET HERE BY 10PM CAUSE THERE WILL BE NO RECEPTIONIST OR ANYONE WHO WILL WAIT FOR YOU AFTER THAT”, so there I was trying to drive like an F1 maniac on the ziggy zaggy road from KL to Dungun in the dark during the heavy rain. After a while, I decided it wasnt worth wasting our life away just to please this lady so I facebook messaged Viking Scuba and apologised and told them we’d be there close to 11 cause it’s raining. I even told Jen that if they refuse to give the keys to us, I’m sure theres other places nearby that would happily take our money for the night. Luckily enough, she waited cause apparently there were other people who came in much later than us (I guess she didn’t really have that much choice did she?). Talking about money, Jen paid for the room for that Friday night just when we were checking out on Sunday and apparently Vikings rang her up and said they didnt receive the money, I’m gonna guess it was the same lady who refused to wait for us that also took the money and happens to ‘forget’ giving the money to her boss. But whatever, good thing she wasn’t the one handling the dives.Anyway enough about that, Viking is a really nice diving centre. They really do take care of you during the dives. New boat, new equipments. They do all the tank carrying and even set and wash the equipments for you (poor DMs man). I really wish the sea wasn’t as choppy as 8 out of 12 of us on the boat got seasick and I even threw up due to seasickness for the first time ever. Dive sites are gorgeous and I would definitely give Tenggol another go (just maybe I might stay at the island instead to avoid the long boat ride). Hotel is really nice with comfy bed and super comfy duvet. Doesn’t exactly have a place to hang your wet diving equipments but I got by with that with the hangers that were in the cupboard. Wifi is terrible (despite staying just above the lobby), but good thing I had enough mobile coverage to handle it.

    We just planned to dive one day but dive sites are so beautiful that we decided to stay a bit longer. We saw whale sharks every day in the light house dive site. The corals are healthy and untouched. Lots of nudibranch and small critters for macro lovers while big fishes swim around.The team is amazing. Kamil, Kamal, Boo and Jimmy take care of customers as friends.We really recommend this dive shop and we hope we can dive with them again!Thank you guys for such an experience!

  34. AussieGlobalTourist

    We had an awesome diving journey with Viking. 6 dives over 2 days. Tenggol Island is an abundance of fish with great visibility despite the wind. Saw a whale shark on the first dive of the 2nd day yeow!!!! Also saw turtle and barracuda. Boo our dive guide was patient and vigilant. The boat crew were welcoming with a relaxed party vibe. Highly recommend Tenggol Island for diving and must go with Viking Scuba. You won’t be disappointed.

  35. Norain1999

    I was recommended to Viking Scuba by a friend who is also a dive centre operator in Kuala Lumpur. As per normal with me, I will always have my reservation and qualms with any dive operator that I am not used to. However, Viking Scuba took all that feelings away from me. What made them so impressive is the way they planned and structured everything in terms of logistics and dive operations that made it very convenient for their customers. And their dive boat is designed in such a way to take the diver’s comfort into consideration. Everything about them is spot-on from their dive gears, dive schedule, dive instructor, meals onboard, and so forth. I would surely recommend this dive operator if you want to dive with peace in mind.

  36. PeterThePug

    The crews from Viking scuba tenggol are doing a real great job. The logistics for the dives such as tanks, gears, food etc are well planned and organised 🙂 Well done for Viking scuba 😉

    Superb dive operator, professional from start to the end. Got my PADI Open Water cert with them and totally loved the whole experience! Definitely recommending them to anyone wanting to learn diving 🙂

    Two great days of scuba from this PADI scuba diving club. Good boat, dives, lunch and friendly staff.

    Their location at PERMATA Resort. They will send you to the boat with HILUX and here goes your lucky days! The crew Kamil and Kamal were the BEST. The lunch was served in the boat(Lady Fatima) while having a surface interval after 2nd dives. Back to land with satisfaction after meeting their pet ‘Lucy’ .

    A favourite dive centre when visiting tenggol. Excellent service, premier equipment and good hospitality.Highly recommended!

    5 Stars all the way. ️ ️ ️ ️ ️ Aiman and Karmil are super-dive guides. Shared with us all the video and photos they had been taking of us was lovely of them too. Captn Mike brings the smoothest waters and made it easy on the boat. Nedira has the diver registration and gear selection handled without any mucking around. Viking Scuba is our go to dive operation for Tenggol island now every time. I’ve dived with others. They were also good. But Viking is the best. Great experience all the way. Thank you! By the way… the diving is spectacular!

    Viking team is absolutely great. Very well organized and well equipped. My dive trips with friends was really worth it. Shout-out to DM Boo for his guidance, patience and energy through out our 6 dives. Professional, safe and always show us impressive amount of underwater life. Thanks for taking us to another level of adventure too. Finally, many thanks to Kamil, Jimmy, Kamal, for going beyond their duty in helping one of my friends to find his underwater camera that lost during safety stop on our last dive. Kudos! *we very thankful for that. May god bless u guys*Overall Tenggol is beautiful + Viking team is awesome = complete fun dives! If you wanna know how 5stars dc treats you, go dive with Viking Scuba.

    From the very first time I step in their dive centre, I knew its gonna be a live changing experience. Took my OW, AOW and my Nitrox course here and it was never a disappointing decision. Its literally a school where u LEARN and really enjoy your learning process! Their equipment is top and serviced super regularly and always have spare on board in case of any emergency! The moment i step into Glenmarie branch for my OW theory session, I was greeted with a “sexy voice” by a sexy man, Brudder Han himself! Best man to be around!! His humour, personality and knowledge is out of this world! Hook him up if you need your gear checked! When I reached Dungun for my open water sessions, I was greeted by the kindest man I know, Kamil! He literally feeds all the cats in Terengganu and some say KL, jkjk, but he is the kindest and most patient instructor with a smile that kills. Learnt my AOW with him and it was GREAT! Kamal, my OW instructor! This man has the eyes of an eagle underwater, he could seriously spot the smallest of stuff!! Look for him is you wanna see what weird stuff the reef of Tenggol has to offer. Coming to the best boatman, Brudder Jimmmmmyy! knows the waters like the back of his hand! The boat will be different without him on board, our papa of Lady Fatima! Our brother Mark, another boatman who is alwayyyyyyss smiling NO MATTER what!! Coming to our beloved DM, Boo, u want to be guided by him underwater, trust me!! With his experience in the waters of Tenggol, u will surely to have the time of your life! Last but not least, the man behind The Vikings it , Mat Yie, my Nitrox instructor, which IMHO the best man to teach this as he is the techical dive junkie of the bunch! He might be the man with very little words, but try to spark a convo with him, u will learn hella lot of stuff. A very inspiring man to be around. Viking, truly my home away from home. Its a place i come to let all of city life away for a while. Its THE place to come if you would love to dive Tenggol. But do note, its a full board dive and no night or shore dive to be expected. But fear not, there is a toilet on board with freshwater, and the food served on board, is superb!! Note, the service on board is 5 star, they change your tanks for you after every dive!!!! Conclusion, just drop by whenever you feel like diving Tenggol, u will thank me later! Lastly, proud to have met you guys, me bro from another mom! do keep up the service and dive safe!! See you guys again. Love, Mohd TJ

    The team at Viking Scuba were awesome. They helped us book accommodation and two days of diving (6 dives total). Everything from start to finish was really professional and well organised. The guides and boat crew were well informed, friendly – always willing to share stories and experiences. We’ve dived a few places around Malaysia and loved the diving in Tenggol – great visibility and beautiful reefs.

  26. Muhamad T

    Very friendly people They are really passionate and professional.Dry towels provided after the dives. Delicious lunch served on the boat.

  27. TracyT1841

Very friendly and very fun people. Overal me and my group really enjoyed diving with them. Would definitely go back again and highly recommend them to friends! Keep up the good work. Hope to see you guys soon.

    I went to Viking for 3 days Open Water Course. My friend recommended me this dive operator. The crew are very friendly,helpful and knowledgeable. Instructors and Dive Guides know their stuff. The crew manage the trip very well. The boat configuration specifically made for diver, It is clean with toilet, lunch on boat is good.tea, coffee,soft drink included. Boat captain is funny guy.

    I have dived with Viking twice and as of now they are my go to place for diving around Tenggol Island! 🙂

    We dived with them (our DM was Kamil) for 2 days (6 dives) over the weekend on 30/5-1/7. We arrived on 29/6, and Kamil was already waited for us and matched us with the right equipments that day and he put them together so no hassle the next morning. The equipments were “shining”, very clean and of course functioning well. Their equipment store also was clean. We started the next day at 8am, departed to Tenggol with 40-min boat journey. The boat was spotlessly clean and comfortable, complete with toilet, hot water for tea and coffee, cold soft drinks, dry towels and first aid kit. Breakfast and lunch were provided with banana, and food was tasty. They have nice music sense too Sadly it was raining the day before so the visibility was quite bad and the water was quite cold. But Kamil the divemaster was amazing! He was attentive to our problems, always showed us things esp those nudibranches, and he took great pictures. He did everything for us so all we had to do was get into the boat, wear the equipment and dive and enjoy. The next day, there were only 2 of us with another 1 open water student and his instructor on the boat. Kinda like private trip. Kamil was amazing again, he even taught us basic underwater photography, point to us the right angle and everything. We went to quite hard dive spots with strong current and choppy surface and I had my first drift dive, wreck dive and deep dive (reaching 30m) that day, and it was awesome.I totally recommend them, and if I return to Tenggol, I will surely dive with them again. Excellent!*attached here are pictures by Kamil. I’m not a good poser and I hate posing as well so that’s kinda the best photo of me. And huge beastly looking morray eel in the shipwreck.

    All members at Viking Scuba are very experienced and cool!! Visited during a first week of June 2018 and weather and water condition are amazing, visibility maximum 20m!! Really enjoyed ride the big jeti and every factors, food, safety, dive points, for diving are fulfilled. I will go back there shortly to dive in the beautiful ocean and to see wonderful team!!

    Just went there recently with a girl friend of mine for a supposedly ‘day trip’ but we extended for an extra 2 nights due to the drive and tiredness of diving.Diving staff are great. Love the DM (Boo) who constantly stood by and helped out my friend as she only logged less than 10 dives so he was very attentive to her. He’s also super funny and nice when we were making fun of her (and each other). Boat captain is funny too and one of the boat assistants is super amazingly sweet and nice. I would super love to give this place a review of 5 stars however I did not like the admin staff at their hotel. Jen (my friend) and I was only able to reach the hotel late as it was a Friday afternoon from KL and it was raining heavily. I rang her up earlier during the day to tell her we will reach before midnight and SHE INSISTED RUDELY on the phone that “YOU HAVE TO GET HERE BY 10PM CAUSE THERE WILL BE NO RECEPTIONIST OR ANYONE WHO WILL WAIT FOR YOU AFTER THAT”, so there I was trying to drive like an F1 maniac on the ziggy zaggy road from KL to Dungun in the dark during the heavy rain. After a while, I decided it wasnt worth wasting our life away just to please this lady so I facebook messaged Viking Scuba and apologised and told them we’d be there close to 11 cause it’s raining. I even told Jen that if they refuse to give the keys to us, I’m sure theres other places nearby that would happily take our money for the night. Luckily enough, she waited cause apparently there were other people who came in much later than us (I guess she didn’t really have that much choice did she?). Talking about money, Jen paid for the room for that Friday night just when we were checking out on Sunday and apparently Vikings rang her up and said they didnt receive the money, I’m gonna guess it was the same lady who refused to wait for us that also took the money and happens to ‘forget’ giving the money to her boss. But whatever, good thing she wasn’t the one handling the dives.Anyway enough about that, Viking is a really nice diving centre. They really do take care of you during the dives. New boat, new equipments. They do all the tank carrying and even set and wash the equipments for you (poor DMs man). I really wish the sea wasn’t as choppy as 8 out of 12 of us on the boat got seasick and I even threw up due to seasickness for the first time ever. Dive sites are gorgeous and I would definitely give Tenggol another go (just maybe I might stay at the island instead to avoid the long boat ride). Hotel is really nice with comfy bed and super comfy duvet. Doesn’t exactly have a place to hang your wet diving equipments but I got by with that with the hangers that were in the cupboard. Wifi is terrible (despite staying just above the lobby), but good thing I had enough mobile coverage to handle it.

    We just planned to dive one day but dive sites are so beautiful that we decided to stay a bit longer. We saw whale sharks every day in the light house dive site. The corals are healthy and untouched. Lots of nudibranch and small critters for macro lovers while big fishes swim around.The team is amazing. Kamil, Kamal, Boo and Jimmy take care of customers as friends.We really recommend this dive shop and we hope we can dive with them again!Thank you guys for such an experience!

  34. AussieGlobalTourist

    We had an awesome diving journey with Viking. 6 dives over 2 days. Tenggol Island is an abundance of fish with great visibility despite the wind. Saw a whale shark on the first dive of the 2nd day yeow!!!! Also saw turtle and barracuda. Boo our dive guide was patient and vigilant. The boat crew were welcoming with a relaxed party vibe. Highly recommend Tenggol Island for diving and must go with Viking Scuba. You won’t be disappointed.

    I was recommended to Viking Scuba by a friend who is also a dive centre operator in Kuala Lumpur. As per normal with me, I will always have my reservation and qualms with any dive operator that I am not used to. However, Viking Scuba took all that feelings away from me. What made them so impressive is the way they planned and structured everything in terms of logistics and dive operations that made it very convenient for their customers. And their dive boat is designed in such a way to take the diver’s comfort into consideration. Everything about them is spot-on from their dive gears, dive schedule, dive instructor, meals onboard, and so forth. I would surely recommend this dive operator if you want to dive with peace in mind.

  36. PeterThePug

    The crews from Viking scuba tenggol are doing a real great job. The logistics for the dives such as tanks, gears, food etc are well planned and organised 🙂 Well done for Viking scuba 😉
