What Our Customers Are Saying About Us

  • WHAT A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE! Without pre-planning my wife and I chose to become scuba certified at the YBD Dive Center. We had been hoping to take certification courses before at other centers, however I am disabled (above knee leg amputee), and there are things I have trouble with or am not able to do, which other centers were not able to accomodate. However at YBD they have the facility and top notch staff which worked with me (and my able bodied wife) and made for a wonderful, incredibly fun experience. Our instructor (Miki) was AMAZING! We loved learning from her, and her patience, anticipation and guidance due to my physical challenges was perfect (and now we have a new friend as well!). The facility itself is incredible (see pics)! As I’ve said before, we’ve looked into other dive centers, but the YBD Dive Center clearly stands above all of those. Their high standards are apparent in their gear, set up, staff and attention to detail. They truly want you to succeed, and are excited when you do. We can’t wait for our next dive with our new friends at the YBD Dive Center!

  • Fantastic trip. The arrangement was very considerate. A refresh training was arranged the day before. The equipment was very complete and the instructor was very nice & professional. The itinerary was also very good. There were 3 dive sites. I saw turtles, clownfish, squid, and many unknown species. Fish fish. The best Dive center i met. Strongly recommend to everyone

  • If you’re reading this, wondering if you’ll enjoy diving with YBD dive center, no need to wonder, you will love it. YBD’s divers are really nice. They’re quite funny too. And they dive well. What makes the dive even more enjoyable, is the wonders of the Malaysian Ocean. You get to learn new stuff with Cole and his knowledge of the sea, Mian will take amazing shots of you and the sea. And Mikki ? Well i didn’t dive with Mikki, but i know for sure that if you don’t have your license yet, you’ll be grateful to have her as your instructor.
    Thank you to all three of you and to Jinn!
    I loved diving here and with you
    Dearly and sincerely,
