(16/06/12 – 17/06/12) 2D1N General’s Hat Island- Leisure Dive

Nestle in the southern tip of the great South China Seas, come join us for a day of bubble making in the turquoise blues of the the eastern islands of Peninsular Malaysia. Known to early Chinese sailors as the “General’s Hat Island, we will explore the ocean’s depths that is rumored to be teaming with beautiful corals and marine life. And if you are truly lucky, you may just come face to face the the largest fish on this planet… the whale shark. And after which we will relax and unwind on the fine pearl white sands that melts away with every step that you take.

Here we go
