Up for a DIY trip?
« on: 17 Aug 17, 09:16 »

Hi everyone!
 
Seasoned divers may go "not again?" on this post but I am really excited to see if it's possible to find enough divers each trip that I am planning to various places like Tioman / Perhentian / Tenggol / Indo on DIY basis.
 
Sometimes I prefer a small group of like-minded divers (at least if you join me, it means you don't mind going a little budget/less luxurious and just want some adventure) and probably those who are:
1) New to diving and want to join a small group first
2) Not yet comfortable to join Dive operator trips / LOB
3) Seasoned divers who have a passion to meet / help those new to diving
 
Maybe all these won't work out but I want to try since I like to DIY trips! So any comments / help from fellow divers in this forum would be great.
 
For Tioman, currently plans are:
1) Get a group of 4 or 6 each time (1 quad or 2 triples)
2) Travel by chauffeured ride (have bookmarked a few companies with a good rate!)
3) Go via Tg Gemuk - need more info on the ferry timings
4) Try various chalets / dive operators - open for comments!
5) Make new friends and just have fun :)
6) Always try to keep costs low - so no Berjaya stays!
7) Open for longer trips (4d3n/5d4n) to take advantage of weekend + PH.
 
For Perhentian, currently plans are:
1) on holddddd - baby steps
 
For anywhere else, even those requiring a short flight, post your "wishes" and maybe with enough interested divers wanting to form a group, we can make it happen.
 
Cheers!

Hi Natarae

I'm quite keen. Any way to keep in contact outside of this forum?

Tenggol - Seems too Over-rated so a no go (IE: I Rather go Redang again with that pricing)
Perhentian - Had just went during July, you can try Angel Diver at Perhentian Kecil not bad tot...too bad the vis for the sugar wreck was bad..but might go back again, if we go Redang.
Tioman - Went during Mar, you can try 'DoDeeper Chalet' Friendly chalet and DM

We are planning heading Redang / Bail (Mola Mola) Next year again ahah

Cheers
