Location: Pulau Tengol, Malaysia

We had an early morning arrival into Pulau Tengol after a short three-mile passage from Pulau Kappas. The morning was spent aboard as well as snorkeling around the point in order to orient ourselves for the upcoming night dive. In the afternoon, some went ashore to explore the epic jungle of Tengol, while others relaxed on the beach and free dove. Finally, our anticipation was met with a stellar night dive. The rays, eels, and many fish were a delight to see in the exciting darkness of the night sea. Following the dive, one of the local resorts invited us to watch and participate in the release of some baby sea turtles they had been nurturing as a conservation project. The sight of these tiny wonders finding the sea for the first time was an utter delight.
