On average, twice a year, Tioman's dive center provides a fully equipped diving vessel for an unforgettable five full days Nitrox diving expedition to some of the best WWII ship wrecks around Tioman Island. The objective of these Nitrox Diving trips is to dive to some of the betterl-documented WWII wrecks, including HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales. Additionally, but this goes without saying, we're aiming to experience Nitrox diving at its most exhiliarting.
Nitrox divers can go deeper and last longer
Now, so that as much daylight time can be spent diving as possible, most of the traveling will be done at night-time. Not only is this more efficient, but it will also increase the setting of the dives, given that this is the exact same stealth mode of traveling applied by the very vessels we'll be diving back when they were still in operation. Of course back then, this was a life-death decision, in order to reduce the odds of being spotted by the enemy, who patroled the area in other vessels, submarines and surveiilnce airplanes.
For many divers in the Nitrox Diving trips, this one-of-a-kind experience of sailing Tioman's history-laden seas at night was one of the reasons for the appeal of the course.
