Owner description: Perhentian Island has more than 20 dive spots that are suitable for all levels of experience. New divers can have a nice relaxing reef dive while be amazed by the brilliantly colored tropical fish and coral. Experienced divers can enjoy the freedom of spectacular reef diving, adventurous wreck diving and deep dives in an extremely idyllic and laid back setting. We teamed up with our neighbors Panorama Chalet to offer value for money Dive + Room packages which can be found on our website. Please note the accommodation provided is of basic beach-hut style. All standard rooms which are used for Dive + Room Packages are simple, but clean wooden bungalows for two people with fan, mosquito net and a bathroom with cold water showers. Rooms are set on a shady hill with lots of native trees just seconds walk to the beautiful beach. As Pulau Perhentian has no mains power, generators are used to supply power to the chalets which normally runs from 7pm-8am and 12noon-3pm. Panorama has a village feel with the chalets, great restaurant selling local and western meals from 8am-10pm daily, a small shop selling fruits, cold drinks and snacks and of course Panorama Diver. Everything you need is right here!

My boyfriend and I both completed our open water certifications with Panorama dive shop. Sharon and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helped us feel comfortable throughout the entire experience. Our instructors (Jesse & Milky) were very patient with us, and made sure that we were comfortable with all our underwater and surface skills. We were very happy with our experience and would definitely recommend this dive shop to others.

We had a really great time at Panorama Diver passing our PADI Open Water! The submarine fauna & flora is beautiful and the whole staff is very nice which makes the experience even better! Umi, our instructor, was very patient and funny: it would probably not have been the same without her! We hope to come back someday to pass the Advanced OW with Panorama!

I did 9 dives here.
To make it short:
- well trained and friendly staff
- well run dive shop
- well maintained equipment
- relaxed hangouts at the shop also after the dives

Can't complain about anything dive shop related
What more could I possibly ask for?! :)
