Its beaches were depicted in the 1958 movie, South Pacific as Bali Hai. In the 1970s, TIME Magazine selected Tioman as one of the world's most beautiful islands.

The weather on Tioman Island is fine all year around. On most days it can be greeted with sunny skies and little wind. Average air temperature is around 32 Degrees Celsius.

The Fishermen Dive Team conducts weekend trips on their very own dive boats - Fishermen Reef Explorer and Fishermen Dive Explorer - during the Tioman diving season (February to November). This allows for divers to cruise and dive all the way up from Mersing to Tioman, letting you spend more time on the beautiful and exotic paradise!
