The spectacular variety of marine life
is what keeps divers coming back.


Singapore attracts millions of tourists each year. In 2006 9.7 million people visited the country. It has a cultural diversity originating from its colonial history and Chinese, Malay, Indian and Arab ethnicities. The country offers all-year round interest for tourists. It is a relatively cheap holiday destination and the country has an agreeable climate.
A tourist`s wish list will be long and varied in Singapore. There are sophisticated and well-priced shopping opportunities; cultural visits to Sri Mariamman Temple and Sultan Mosque (Masjid Sultan); nature trips to the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Jurong Bird Park, Zoological Gardens; and for relaxation in sumptuous surroundings the world famous Raffles Hotel is a perfect retreat. The Orchard Road district is considered by most to be the centre of tourism. The Singapore media claims that the country belongs in the top five countries of the world for its nightlife, fine dining and shopping experiences. In addition the Singapore Tourism Board boasts a variety of all-year round events for tourists such as the Chingay Parade, the Singapore Arts Festival and the Singapore Garden Festival.
Venturing out of the heart of the tourist district, for scuba divers there are numerous local Singapore diving schools and centres which provide the opportunity for beginners through to experienced divers to dive. There are more schools further afield also. Divers can take courses leading to the internationally recognised SSI, NAUI or PADI certifications. Classes are held in the day or at night and sometimes include a trip to a neighbouring island where divers can put their skills to the test.
The locations of the centres are sensational. Divers are surrounded by breathtakingly beautiful beaches and mountainous backdrops. Pulau Tioman is a very popular diving site off the coast of the Malaysian state of Pahang. It is easily accessed from Singapore using bus and ferry or direct ferry. The beaches here are spectacular and crystal clear water and coral provide snorkelling and diving interest. Pulau Redang is off the coast of Terengganu which is the northern state on the east coast of Malaysia. Being more inaccessible than Pulau Tioman, Pulau Redang used to be divers` best kept secret. With its white sandy beaches and excellent diving conditions it is the diver`s paradise. Now a golf course has been built and the area is better known but the diving is still excellent here and also around the nearby island of Pulau Lang Tengah, which also provides good conditions for snorkellers. Pulau Kapas is offshore from the town of Marang, also in the state of Terengganu. It is a relatively small diving area but is extremely popular.
For the scuba diving enthusiast Singapore is an excellent destination. Flights to the country are operated by fly to Singapore and time could be well spent during the flight writing out your `wish list` of the diverse attractions the country has to offer when you are taking time off from your diving!

Gill Divers Dive Trips Singapore Pulau Hantu

Diving in Pulau Hantu

Hantu Island (or Pulau Hantu, as it is known locally) is located in Singapore waters, just a short boat ride off the southwest coast of Singapore. With 2 individual islands, Hantu Besar (Big Ghost) and Hantu Kecil (Small Ghost), visitors can actually walk between the islands during low tide. Although Pulau Hantu is located in the close vicinity of Pulau Bukom’s refineries, they still boast a very rich reef collection, popular amongst snorkelers and divers alike.
