Renggis Island is a small tree covered island off the west coast of Tioman Island that offers some of the best diving in the area. Just 20 minutes boat ride away it is popular with Tioman dive centers and is often used for training dives. Boulders descend from the surface down to 20m. On the eastern side the rocks are covered in corals, gorgonian seafans and barrel sponges. Anemones are home to various anemone fish species including Clark's anemone fish and the western clownfish (Nemo). Anthias and damsel fish dance around coral heads. Schools of snapper and fusilier are grouped over the reef. Turtles can be found feeding on the coral and shy black tip reef sharks can be seen. It is also a popular spot for night dives when parrotfish can be seen asleep in their protective cocoon and crustaceans like crabs and shrimps are numerous.
The more exposed west side of the island is covered with gorgonian sea fans. It is home to Boris the giant barracuda and several turtles. Away from the island in deeper water are two Thai wooden fishing wrecks and a small reef full of marine life. Black spot moray can be seen here as can batfish.
