Renggis Island

Renggis Island is one of Tioman's top dive spots, hence it can get busy at times. Sub surface on the eastern side of the island is a reef teeming with life with all manner of corals, sponges and anemones and a multitude of fish. This site is often used for training and night dives, it is also one of the better places to spot turtles and blacktip sharks.
The western side of the island has a lot of Gorgonians and is home to several turtles and a resident giant barracuda called Boris. Venturing off the island reefs and into slightly deeper water will reveal a couple of Thai fishing wrecks that house a moray eel. There is also another "hidden reef" out here with equally as impressive corals and fish life.

The usual dive plan is to enter the water at the easterly site and swim around the island at a depth range of 12-15m. The coral formation is mainly tableBack to top, stack horn, bommies, brain corals, cabbage and potato corals on the rather flat bottom. You could take a detour to the two Thai fishing wrecks which lay in 20m of waters if you prefer deeper dives, but mostly we cover the back part of the island in search for its resident Black tip sharks and green turtle. This dive spot is simply amazing for snorkelers.

The resident marine life you can find here are angel, puffer, bat fishes, emperors, titan trigger, parrots, butterfly, bumphead parrot fishes, nurse sharks, scorpions, blue dotted stingrays, yellow striped snappers, moray eels, yellowtail fusiliers and zebra lion fish.
