Abundant Marine Life near Tioman Island
The waters near Tioman Island hold a positive cornucopia of fish, crustaceans, corals, cetaceans, chelonii, echidnoderms, Medusozoa and sharks – with the vast majority of them being perfectly safe and non-lethal for human beings. Some of these lovable animals are out and proud – colourful, flamboyant, and unafraid of human presence, such as the Titan Trigger Fish, the Trevailles, Fusiliers and the Cornet fish. Some of these animals are more enigmatic, ambush predators that prefer to hide amongst the undergrowth, camouflaging themselves until the opportune moment to strike at their prey – like the Black Tip Shark, the Blue Spotted Stingray, and the map puffer fish. Don’t worry, these animals may sound menacing and are hard to spot – but as long as you see them in time and stay out of their way, they are perfectly harmless!
Resilient Coral Reefs
Tioman Island also has unusually resilient coral formations compared to the rest of the region – according to a report by Biosphere Expeditions called “Paradise in Peril: Studying & Protecting Reefs within the Tioman Archipelago Marine Protected Area”, Tioman Island has an average of 58% live coral cover, 50% of them hard corals with the rest being soft corals. This is far above the national average for coral health in Malaysia, making Tioman Island one of the few spots in Malaysia that still has thriving coral reefs. With ongoing measures to prohibit fishing and limit tourist development, Tioman Island’s reefs are on the way to recovery and to becoming one of the best in the world! So come along to Tioman Island’s newest and flashiest luxury resort, Aman Tioman Resort, and dive with Aman Tioman Dive Center to see these natural wonders!
