Tour Description:

Mabul Island is a beautiful holiday destination for divers and non-divers alike. Famous for its muck diving, even without going too far from the beach, one can spot turtles, cuttlefish, octopi, eagle and blue spotted stingrays by the house reef. The underwater scenery further away from the beach is even better, so take a boat to go further out to sea where treasures are hidden. Strap on your diving equipment and swim through the clear waters of Celebes sea.

You will have the time of your own throughout the entire journey to explore and see the beauty of the island for yourself. The wooden platform on which you step is beautifully decorated with intricate design and pot plants along the way. The overhead wooden beam also provides shelter from the rain as you make your way around the island. The clear colour of the water coupled with the beautiful design of the platform gives a serene and calming feel to the whole experience that you are sure to enjoy during your time there. Rejoice and enjoy your trip as you go for a boat ride around Mabul or Kapalai Island for up to four different journeys on your own snorkelling trip. Once under the water, you will discover many of the riches of the Celebes Sea. Be it bobtail squid, stonefish, all the way to the infamous blue-ringed octopus, the sea abounds in its mysterious inhabitants and amazing views.

Kapalai, meanwhile, is no longer an island, but its beauty is not one to be dismissed either. Kapalai is a world-class diving destination but one can also appreciate what it has to offer by snorkelling. Giant potato groupers, bump-head parrotfish, shimmering fusiliers and schooling jackfish can be seen making their way through the calm underwater world as smaller fish like the mandarin fish and friendly batfish flit through corals. There are also wrecks that you can observe just below a shallow sloping reef on a sandy plateau, and many unique organisms like orangutan crabs, spider crabs and hyper-coloured nudibranchs make their home there.

After an exciting afternoon, retreat and unwind on your own private seaview room overlooking the sea. See the light of the moon touching the waves and illuminating the night sky. As you rock yourself to sleep amidst the rolling waves and the refreshing evening breeze, rejuvenate and re-energise for another exciting day tomorrow.
