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.

and colourful nudibranchs all along the way, and while snorkelling you may spot other marine life such as giant barracudas, moray eels, turtles and rays, and if you’re lucky enough you may even spot a whale shark!

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.

Known as the most famous diving site of Malaysia, Sipadan Island has an amazing diversity of marine life that features unique big fish encounters that are usually of huge school sizes. Sea turtles flock the area, munching on the abundant sponges and algae, and if you're really lucky, you might find yourself in the middle of a swirling vortex of barracudas, one of the most sought-after experience by divers.

For your accommodation, you will get a fan-ventilated twin-sharing room and a shared bathroom. The nights will be cool and breezy and should be adequate in providing your room with a comfortable temperature. Your room will also overlook the majestic Celebes sea, so sit back and relax with the view and some alcohol or carbonated soft drinks at an extra charge. You need not worry about your meals as they are all included, while refreshments and snacks are also free of charge.
