Categorised as rocky caving, tunnel, deep and drift dive, and reached via 30-40 mins by boat from Tioman, Pulau Chebeh Island has two fascinating dive sites to choose from here, pick from North or South, depending on current directions at the time. Viz is exceptionally good here too, up to 30m range. The depths vary from 5m to 30m which make it suitable for all levels of divers, with mostly mild ocean currents, and the best months to visit are between April and September.

As you drift around the cluster of giant volcanic boulders, which descend to a sandy bottom 30m below, you can explore inside several tunnels, crevices, swim-throughs, walls, canyons and both big and small caves, all sheltering an astonishing variety of macro creatures like red cowries, seahorses, Christmas tree worms, starfish, cushion stars, hermit crabs, flatworms and nudibranchs nestling inside colourful soft and hard corals such as black corals, yellow pore corals, barrel sponges, green staghorns, anemones and sea whips.

One highlight here is the fantastic, never-ending garden of green, orange, white, pink and blue gorgonian sea fans with schools of reef fish like pufferfish, butterflyfish, wrasses, angelfish, lizardfish, hump head parrotfish, snappers, scorpionfish and lionfish. Big schools of glassfish live in one of the caverns, and you might see moray eels peeking out of little nooks.

If lucky, you can get quite close to schools of big pelagic hunters such as barracudas, baby sharks, blacktip reef sharks, rainbow runners and jacks and if visiting early in the season, you could encounter manta rays and whale sharks as they migrate from the North!
