Fan Canyon dive site is composed of several huge rocks covered by magnificent hard and soft coral. Between two of the rocks there is a narrow canyon full of huge sea fans. It is better not to dive into the canyon to not damage this very fragile coral. With a maximum depth of 30 m and an average depth of 22 m, this dive site suits better for open water advanced. On the rocks you can many find many nudibranch and flat worm of many different species. One of the best place in Tioman Islands for underwater photography! Enjoy ;-)

This location is a Reef. Most people are here for Wreck Diving.

Best time to dive: the ideal period to plan holidays here isFebruary to March. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Fan Canyon on the right for the exact location.
