Family laughter and fun. First I tried Discover scuba diving my first time diving without knowing how to swim imagine how good instructor is and I really see things differently from surface snorkeling . Before you get to the island please bring mosquito spray if you don't want to donate your blood at the ocean night. I came back and did Open water and advanced scuba diver here. Even you are solo traveller you would make a lot of Monkey friends just like you. They have scuba diving packages with accommodation (dorm & private room) with very very cheap and I think it's the cheapest price I see in Malaysia with love. The first place is always come up when I go Perhentian island "Monkey dives" just be like home.

I booked the package with 4 dives and 2 nights at the dorm. The environment is very chilled and the people are very friendly and nice. The dive sites from the perhentian islands are very beautiful with some wrecks and beautiful corals. Definitely more than worth a visit!

Had a wonderful experience. We stayed at Monkey for 3 nights and I did a Discovery Dive with Toni. I was a bit anxious at the beginning, but he did such a wonderful job at explaining things slowly and calming me down. The dorm is really conveniently located, close to the sunset point and the Windmill park. I really recommend the Monkey Dives experience 😊

Had an amazing time at Monkey Dives. Feel at home, dive when you want, chill, relax and party with the crew and join the family. Before you know it, 3 nights become 5, 4 dives become 6. Great pricing and good vibes all around.

I did two fun dives with Sarah and two with James and it was fabulous! They both are very responsible and lovely diving instructors that were always making sure everyone feels safe and has a good time. They have a good camera and send us their photos and videos afterwards which I really appreciated! The whole team of monkey dives is lovely and fun and I felt very welcome from the minute I stepped in. Thank you for a great time and see you again in the future! 💙

Absolutely amazing place! The people are awesome and really friendly, welcoming and fun particularly Sarah, James (diving instructors), Matt and G! Their dorms have AC and are comfortable and nice! (Also free coffee is a bonus!) I also went snorkelling with them and managed to see turtles, sharks and stingrays in just one day! Thank you for such a brilliant stay! I will be back whenever I can!

Welcoming and relaxed environment. Professional, friendly and very knowledgeable staff members: Sarah, James, Didi, Matt. Marvellous dive sites surrounding the islands. You just need to do it... with them! 😉 I only planned to do 2-3 dives. However, I ended up doing 8 dives in total (1 refresher, 1 night dive and 6 fun dives) A massive thank you to Sarah – I was really stressed before my refresher dive, your tips and a face-in-the-water exercise 😉 helped me a lot, thank you for all your support

Tout était parfait. On a plongée avec James pour faire notre Advenced (AOW). Il est un très bon instructeur. Les sites étaient très bien et très intéressants. On a pu voir tortues et requin. Meilleur prix sur l’île pour notre certification
