Labas is identified by a series of outcropping rocks lying towards north west of Tioman Island, and these uniquely arranged rocks form a few cracks where divers may swim between! Labas also promises stunning underwater reef life, with huge coral formations where apart from your regular reef fishes, blue spotted stingrays, green turtles, and eels are a common sight. Practice your creature spotting by looking for them hiding among the rocks and corals!
As Labas lies slightly further off from the main island, currents may be a little bit stronger if not planned properly. However, with properly dive site planning, this dive site is accessible to even Open Water Divers!

Advanced divers and above may try their luck, as the currents may even bring in a few shark. And Labas can go down to 24m, also making it an excellent site for the Advanced Divers course!
