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

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!

Underwater Photography/Video Equipments / Re: What to buy Next....
« Last post by Alvin Ho on Today at 12:02 AM »
1) Electronics stuff not worth much these days. Ikelite housing worse.
2) Depends on if you're sticking to Nikon or not. D500 is very capable. If not maybe a 2nd hand D7100/7200
3) Can consider mirrorless systems from Sony/Oly/Pana

Underwater Photography/Video Equipments / What to buy Next....
« Last post by yitxiang90 on 22 Aug 17, 17:58 »
Hello Experts!

I have been shooting with D80 with YS110a + ikelite housings for close to a decade (mainly macro). I been wanting to change out to a better camera but was reluctant to do so because of the sunken cost in ports, housing, etc. I don't mind selling off my stuff and getting a fully new set. But some question remains.

1) How much do you think I can get for my old set (ballpark)
2) What camera should I get next and how much will it cost (so many in the market now, and I have lost touch with everything nowadays)
3) Ideally... I would want a camera that can give me the flexibility to do macro, wide angle, and video.
