SIPADAN - THE BEST, BAR NONE.
Voted as one of the best dive sites in the world, it's clear that this oceanic island rising 600m from the sea bed well and truly deserves that title.
Off the coast of Sabah in East Malaysia is home to more than 400 species of fish and hundreds of coral species. This highly protected area requires a permit issued by a Malaysian governmental body known as Sabah Parks.
You even have to spend 4 days minimum in the surrounding Mabul and Kapalai islands to be granted the permission needed to dive in Sipadan. But it's worth it!
From its sprawling coral reefs to its diverse marine population consisting of barracudas, trevallies, jackfish, parrotfish and if you are very lucky - hammerhead sharks. This protected island's beaches are also renowned as mating and nesting spots of green and hawksbill turtles.
Sipadan is one destination you don't want to miss, and since we have limited spots available, what are you waiting for? Hurry and book your dream dive holiday before they're all gone!

LET'S DIVE INTO IT!
Journey to Mabul
Upon your arrival at Tawau Airport, we will transfer you to Semporna Jetty where you can board a ferry to Borneo Divers Mabul Resort. After lunch, take the plunge at 2 local reef dive spots to familiarise yourself with the waters before getting some well-deserved rest.
Exploring The Twins
In the morning, you’ll enjoy 2 dives around the beautiful Mabul and Kapalai Islands. Each spot is selected based on the varying conditions and abundance of aquatic life for you to experience. If there is time and the guide decides that it is fine, there will be a third dive.
A Trio of Special Dives
If conditions allow, you will be able to visit 3 special dive destinations. The first, a decommissioned oil rig now operating as a resort, Eel Garden and Stingray City. All 3 spots are rich in diverse marine life and structures with amazing swim-throughs.
After an early start, prepare yourself for the ultimate dive experience at Sipadan Island - Barracuda Point. Witness their tornado, the thousands of Jackfish surrounding you and if you’re lucky, Hammerhead Sharks at Blue. In total, 3 amazing dives at the world’s best dive spot.
After a hearty breakfast, you will be transferred to Tawau via ferry and then to the airport to catch your flight back home. But this time, you’re taking home a memory that will last a lifetime. Words can’t describe the experience that’s still fresh in your mind.
