Will be doing my Rescue out of Paya at Tioman. Anyone got any things to advise on what I can look to expect? What to see, what not to touch, what current to expect bla bla

kind of hard to tell you unless you know which sites you will be diving. erm what not to touch? If you had to ask then the answer is everything.

i think paya don't allow shore dives anymore, i just checked with a friend recently.
Please tell me this isn't true, as i wanna do shore dives there.
ok apart from that, most of the tioman dive sites have urchins and crown of thorns, just be weary of your surroundings

haha good luck on Exercise 7... imagine if the unconscious diver is at the white sand site then you have to do a shore egress...

merry christmas and happy new year! hahaha

and i don't get the part about "what not to touch". isn't the right answer "EVERYTHING"?

I didnt mean what not to touch 'touch' as in when i dove off salang there were tonnes of urchins and crown of thorns, so im wondering if there'll be anything that'll be a pain in the ass.
