“Located just 45 kilometres south-east of Singapore and twice its size, northern Bintan is easily accessible via a 45-minute ride on a high speed catamaran from Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal. To go scuba diving in Bintan, ferries depart from the World Trade Centre and take 90 minutes each way.”
Upcoming Dive Bintan Trips
We love Amazing Bintan so much that during the monsoon we have Bintan dive trips every weekend from early November to late February! Join our Amazing crew as we dive in our own backyard! Our trips typically get full about 1-2 weeks before the trip date though, so do book your dive trip early to avoid disappointment. If you’d like to book a Bintan dive trip outside of the monsoon months, we can make arrangements with a minimum of four pax.
The Best Time to Dive Bintan
Bintan diving is possible all year round, and is a great alternative to diving Tioman during the monsoon period. From April to October, the calmer seas are best for diving when Bintan’s marine life is at its most abundant.

It is believed that the time comes to a total standstill and Penyengat Iisland is almost sleepy and hollow. Penyengat Island was the center of the Malay Riau-Lingga empire for a long time.
This island was the home to numerous mausoleums honoring various Malay nobles and heroes, and it offers visitors with many interesting heritage sites that exist on this little island! These things include a village, which has an old Dutch fort, royal mausoleums, old palaces, and the Sultan of Riau Grand Mosque that was believed to have been built with the use of egg white.
This is real treat for the people who are interested in history and historical monuments!
These islands own their beauty totally to the sea and maritime culture plays a major role for their attraction to the visitors. If you like to travel in the island and would love to have a real experience of the maritime culture, it is advised that you travel boat than by car.
