MV DiveRACE Class E is a brand-new diving ship sailing from Singapore to the Tioman Islands (Pulau Tioman) of Malaysia. It is a purpose-built ship that was first launched in 2015. The team are experienced, professional and fun. They know what guests on liveaboard diving boats in Malaysia want & need, and they know the dive sites well.
The boat is very large (35 metres long & 7.5 metres wide) so it can easily cruise through the night to the remote islands, which are located between Peninsula Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo. Each cabin has independent air conditioning and a private an suite bathroom. There is a large lounge for indoor briefings on the huge television, as well as for relaxing in air-conditioned comfort. At the rear of the main deck is a large outdoor dining area that is covered. Below is a massive diving deck that enables everyone to gear up, sit in comfort waiting for the 'go,' and to store personal and rental diving equipment. The boat's roof has a vast sundeck, too.
Dive RACE Class E can take up to 28 guests in twin, double and quad-bunk cabins. The wonderful food is a perfect blend of (not too spicy) local and western dishes. Diving is hungry work, but Dive RACE guests will get plenty of food to fuel up to five dives a day. There is even a massage service on board, plus high-quality rental equipment, PADI courses and plenty of space to eat, drink, chat, edit or show videos, or fiddle with photographic equipment.

The trips start in Singapore in the early evening, sailing through the night.
On the first full day there are five dives at different locations (depending on sea & weather conditions, and the needs and desires of the guests).
On the second day there is one dive, and then Dive RACE sails back to Singapore, returning around 10pm.
The itineraries below are the most-common for each trip, but these can sometimes be changed for a number of reasons. Small changes are made due to weather & sea conditions, special marine life sightings, overcrowded dive sites, local-authorities' instructions, and the needs & requests of the paying guests. The safety & comfort of all guests is most important at all times.
