I have done my Open Water Course with Sunny Cove and it was amazing. The pool session was held in Singapore one week before the open water diver which was in Tioman, Malaysia. Helms and his crew are very supportive, professionals, patient and friendly. They made me feel very confident and calm during the open dives which helped me a lot go through my fears and to pass the OWC. Additionally, I had a great weekend with the whole group that at the end was very close to each other. Highly recommend Sunny Cove!

I'm so happy that I went with Sunny Cove for my Advanced Open Water certification. Helms was an awesome instructor and so much fun to learn from. I definitely progressed a lot over the weekend as a diver thanks to Helms. Super friendly, patient, helpful, and overall fun to be around. I did a weekend trip to Tioman and did 6 dives over the course of 2 days. I was able to complete 6 adventure dives: night, boat, wreck, peak performance buoyancy, underwater navigation, and deep dive. You can't beat the cost either! Cost included AOW certification, transport to and from singapore, equipment rental, accommdations, and food.

I had such a fun time during my weekend with Sunny Cove. I would HIGHLY recommend Sunny Cove to anyone in the Singapore area looking for OW, AOW, or any leisure dives. I'd give them 6 stars if I could. Thanks again for everything, Helms!

Recently went on a trip with Sunny Cove LLP to do my AOW with a group of other divers and had a blast at Bali, Sanur. Helmy was very accommodating and fun. He gave me tips on how to improve my buoyancy and how to prevent one from crashing into the rocks ot coral. The adventure dives were covered in detail and we learned alot from this trip. The other dive instructor, Felix shared many of his insights into diving and has a very bubbly personality.

We were joined with the team from OCA divers and they have amazing staff and facilities. You can see my review on OCA on their page.

After the dive, we even had an after party! It was so fun. If you want to go to dive in Bali, do check em out. Thanks Sunny Cove for the amazing trip.

I took my Open Water certification with Sunny Cove. Pools sessions were held in Singapore one week prior the open water dives which were located in Pulau Hantu. The diving sites are about 40 minutes from the West Coast Pier.
We were a group of 4 and our instructor was Helms.

The first contact via email was good, Helms has been super responsive since the first emails we exchanged to get a better understanding of Sunny Cove vs my expectations. This definitely biased my choice between Sunny Cove and all the diving shops that I contacted in Singapore.

The main reason why I highly recommend Sunny Cove and Helms is the fact that he managed to make the four of us feel very comfortable and confident in the water although we came with different backgrounds and level of confidence in the water.

We all agreed on the fact that Helms' has been very skilled and professional, patient, calm, willing to teach and encouraging!

Thanks a lot Helms for helping us pass the OWC!!

I joined an Advance Open Water course last weekend. Basically, the course is ideal for those with busy work because we set off for Tioman on Friday night and came back to SG on Sunday night. No leave needs to be taken. It took around 5 hours from Sunny Cove to Mersing with a private van. Of course, you can imagine that it's Friday night so two hours were spent to pass the custom. We stayed one night at Mersing in a small hotel with some food stall nearby. On Saturday morning, we took the ferry to Tioman, and the trip was around two hours so it's a good time to take a snap. The resort we stayed in was cozy and comfortable with a beautiful beach where you can spot the amazing sunset. However, there were many mosquitos so you should take mosquito repellent with you. On the first day, there was one dive in the morning, two dives in the afternoon and one night dive for AOW. On the second day, two dives in the morning so there were total 6 dives. In the two days, we had five adventure dives of peak performance buoyancy, underwater photographing, navigation, night dive and deep dive plus one leisure dive. It's good to have one additional dive because sometimes your condition was not optimal and you may miss one adventure dive and you still have one chance to complete it. The staff was quite friendly and the gears we rent were in good condition. You can also pick your own equipment in the dive shop and the price is reasonable. Generally, I would highly recommend Sunny Cove to those in SG who want to start their dive life.

I had an amazing experience with this dive centre. The Transport to Tioman was well organized in a private shuttle bus. Very good vibes of the dive masters over the entire trip to Tioman! It was basically an amazing holiday with amazing people in an amazing resort. For me, the best thing was to get an PADI Open Water without taking any days off from work. After my dives I went for some beers at the beach enjoying the sunset! I would recommend this to my friends! No hassle, everything organized, and the dive location is just beautiful.

This was or first patronage at Sunny Cove Dive Center. The shop was well equipped with a good selection of dive gear for sale.
Helm, the owner and dive instructor took on 3 kids (8-12yrs) for a theory and pool session covering a refresher (12yr), a discovery dive (12yr), and bubble maker (8yr).
The kids started with a mix of excitement and trepidation. By the end of the sessions, all 3 exceeded expectations, particularly the 8yr old, beaming with a new found confidence.
I am certain, (knowing the kids and following how the lessons were conducted) the amazing outcome was a result of Helm's instructional excellence, patience and commitment to the highest of service standards.
Kudos to Sunny Cove. We will definitely be back for more!

From the start of the trip till the end , it was well planned by the crews of SunnyCove. My friends and I enjoy the the Open Water Diver course taught by Javier Yeo . One of the youngest and professional dive instructor I ever met .

Our safety was his number 1 priority and he is always willing to go extra mile just to help us learn the skills more efficiently.

I will recommend this dive centre to all my friends and family out there . If you are thinking of learning Scuba diving , wait no more . Sign up with SunnyCove

The Padi OW course consists of: theory test, pool session and 5 open water dives. We were sent over the e-learning materials and conducted the theory test and pool session at Sunny Cove's offices. The theory was all fully explained and the pool session was a good intro to the skills which we'd be doing at the OW dives in Tioman. We did the theory test and pool session on a weekday.

OW dives - We departed from Sunny Cove at 1845 on the Friday and arrived back on the Sunday at 2200. It is a long weekend which is pretty intense but it was SO worth it. Everything was organised so well and we felt truly looked after throughout the stay. 4 of us were doing the basic OW course which was a good number and meant we got a lot of 1:1 time.

The dives themselves were challenging but fun. We even saw a giant turtle which was amazing!! Helms was such a fantastic teacher and really knows his stuff. He was patient and calm and I always felt safe. Helms was happy for us to have a fun dive once we had completed all of our skills which was fantastic.

The accommodation at the ferry port is basic and the Paya Beach resort in Tioman is good and the perfect location for the dives. Breakfast and lunch was buffet style so food was plentiful and there were a variety of options.

I would recommend Sunny Cove to all newbies to diving and anyone looking for a local, friendly and professional dive school. If i decide to do my Advanced OW course then I will definitely be contacting Sunny Cove :)

The bunch of us were with Sunny Cove for leisure dive and some of us were there for OWC. Safety is always on their mind so you can be sure you are in good hands. They are also a fun loving bunch so you will not be bored during non diving periods. Ask them for some local food introductions and they will love to share their pocket list.
