Take a boat out to explore Sapi Island and experience sea walking, snorkelling and diving to escape the city.
Sapi Island is a popular paradise for snorkelling and diving. If that doesn’t sound like your cup of tea then perhaps the less demanding, but equally fascinating, sea walking experience is what you should sign up for! This is one of the best activities to include in your holiday. The 15 minutes leisurely stroll will introduce you to the many gems that inhabit the seas as it enables you to marvel at the island of Borneo’s underwater beauties. Sea walking does not require anything (you don’t even need to know how to swim!) but a 25 kg helmet that keeps you dry from the neck up as you admire the magnificent marine plants and gorgeous corals. Look out for the colourful tropical fishes that swim casually around you, too!
The tour makes a splendid family activity as those who are 7 years old and above are able to participate. There is no maximum age so even the grandparents can join in if they like. Both children and adults will appreciate this fun and educational experience. It is also very suitable for anyone who has a fear of snorkelling or diving. Those who give sea walking a try often end up overcoming their fears and are able to move on to the more challenging water activities. And for the lovely ladies who might be worried about their makeup running, we can confidently tell you that the air-hosed helmets prevent even the slightest drops of water from entering.
Once you have had your fill of walking on the sea bed, you are free to do whatever you like whilst waiting for the return boat cruise. Laze around on the long stretches of perfect white beaches or play in the dazzlingly clear sea. And if you feel up to it, go ahead and join a snorkelling trip!
