Dive Site for Recommendation
« on: 25 Jul 11, 16:33 »
Hi All,

I am new in this dive community. It has provided many insight for me. However, I will be going to Tioman this coming national day holidays and staying at paya beach resort. It is my first time diving there. Could anyone kind enough to give me insight into which dive site is nice.

Thanks in Advance,
JT

Paya is a nice resort to be at. Probably one of the nicest among the few i've tried. if you're just joining them for dives, i don't think you will have a choice to choose which dive sites to go to.

if you're into macro photography, can try asking them to bring you to Aaron's Bay, which is right off the beach in front of Paya.

Thanks Antacid for your recommendation. As I am also new into UW photography, my setup is just a canon S95  with ikelite housing and sadly without strobe and without any macro lens. If I do not have a choice to choose which dive sites to go to, then usually the DC will bring us where for diving?

Dude, ask them to bring you to Fan Canyon and Tulai Island. By far, my best dive ever is both fan canyon and tulai. Fan Canyon is also know as sea fan garden. The colours are just... WOW!

Hey JT, S95 is a great camera even by itself. This guy uses compact camera and can take very gd pictures using ambiene light, no flash, with white balance settings only. http://www.strobelessphotography.com/
