  • I know sunnycove organising. U can check their fb page and msg them. I wanted to go too as they had recently just reopened for divers to go. FYI, the marine park fee is $200-250RM (was given estimates by a few dc. I even asked Gill divers.)

    Hi Fireflies,

    Sidetrack from maintopic.
    Is Gill Divers still in operation at Hongkong Street level 1?
    I read somewhere it was brought over.
    Then my friend happen to call some DC called Scuba Corner but they say they are Gill Divers.
    When I check the web, this DC is also at Hongkong Street but at level 3.
    Then who's at Level 1?
    2 years ago, a very popular DC but nowadays don't see them at Mersing anymore..
    You have any idea?

    Dive at Dayang

  • Let me tell story:
    I went on a hari raya weekend stroll around Clarke Quay. First I went to Deep Blue. small entrance area with a sign on first floor. Take lift upstairs. then I walked over to Gill divers. Black logo right. One Street away, turn left. It's the same place, at hongkong Street and on first floor. Very big store with handsome guys.
    Then I went to friendly waters at River walk. Have to go down small staircase in the building. The stairs is near the Clark Quay iconic bridge.
    Then I went to peace centre (diveasia/oceanic asia) and another just beside it on third floor. So..
    All of them were closed on PH except Gill divers. But they don't sell the aeris accel fins I want. And only diveasia have. But they always randomly open...must call before going. But just beside them there is another dive shop Americ marine. I wanted to go see wakiki too but I walked till sian (the whole area around Victoria Street alot of dive shops)

    Yes they are there.
    Maybe they share the large dive shop with baby sub operators?

  • Well , I found a DC that quote me abt 450 with the marine fees included.
    Makes me wonder if the 200rm imposed by the Sultan was removed..
    Nevertheless, I am getting the DC to indicate in their quotation that the cost includes the 200rm.
    I be going on 2nd - 4th Oct.
    So cheap? No gear included. Not lob. Additional fees? No dinner included. Pls check.

  • Its sad(to tiger21) to heard u missed Dayang/Aur. I had always like it there more than Tioman, just my feel and since I had more dives there. But you are not too late compare to my seven skies(sadly wanted to go this sep) which is half or more gone.

    Fireflies, if Leeway(think there is a trip post last year)managed to do it at S$400 last year including marine park fee (RM200), don't think its impossible at S$450 this year. I think majority of the operator will not include gears but not dinner I guess.

    Yup. No gear. Stay at resort on Dayang.
    Dinner gotta to confirm.
    Maybe the resort is hard up to attract divers back.

  • Ya.. Haha..

    Wow.  Time flies.... :)

    My first trip to Dayang was back in 1991 !
    No diving then, just a lot of sun, sea (snorkelling) & sand (beach combing).
    A group of SG guys were operating a simple resort on the island, just 5 rooms for 10 pax.
    Took 6 hrs by slow boat from Mersing.
    There is a trail that leads up to the hilltop behind the resort for some awesome view ... not sure if still there.

  • I am just wondering. Are you guys aware that there is liveaboard to Dayang departing from Singapore that can save you all the hassle of land and night ferry transfers? For those wanting to experience Dayang without the hassle of long, tiring and tight vans, there is always a LOB option :)

    Hi, I am very interested to know which LOB boat from Singapore is doing Dayang/Aur.

    Thanks
