    Hi,

    You're much better off in Phuket, Thailand.

    It's the monsoon season over here right now....

    Penang is on the same side as Phuket, more sheltered on the west side of Peninsular Malaysia and Thailand so is not affected by the NE Monsoon which is blowing now on the east coast and South China Sea. But you are right that Phuket is a better choice. Though there are a couple of diveshops in Penang itself the diving is more at Pulau Paya and Langkawi Island, some distance away from Penang by boats and as far as I know there are no rebreather diving at all.

    Just my 2 cents!

    Lived on Penang for five years and dived the Islands to North many times. Vis around Penang is not good. I think they run day charters to Paula Paya from Penang.I was there a few months ago and as Davy said no rebreather diving.
