Explore the diverse marine life and white sandy beaches of Mataking, Timba-Timba and Pom-Pom Islands in this amazing island hopping and snorkelling adventure!
Our Island hopping adventure will take us to three famous islands around the Semporna Region. Mataking Island features sparkling white sands, crystal clear blue waters and even a top class resort right on the beach. Popular with divers and snorkellers as well, the whole island is surrounded by diversely populated reefs of marine life. The island also houses the famous 'Underwater Post Office', where the resort decided to sink Mataking 1, an old 40-foot wooden cargo ship to create an artificial reef and also to serve as a unique underwater mailbox. Divers seal their mail in a waterproof vacuum bag and post it underwater.
Located near Mataking are the islands of Timba-Timba and Pom-Pom that are havens for snorkellers and divers alike. The islands feature a high density and diversity of marine life that along with other famous islands around the Tun Sakaran Marine Park, are arguably some of the richest single destination for small exotic marine life anywhere in the world. From the flamboyant cuttlefish, the blue-ringed octopus and even hawksbill turtles, this is an underwater experience that is never to be missed!
