Diving in Sipadan 

Sipadan, voted as one of the Top 10 Dives by Scuba Travel, UK and Top 50 Best Dive Sites in the World by sportdiver.com, is home to over 3000 species of fish and hundreds of coral species. This oceanic island located in Celebes Sea boasts over 100 dive sites, with 12 internationally famous ones including the renowned Barracuda Point.

 

Sipadan is understandably famous for its wall diving. Just 20 feet from the shore, the wall plunges a staggering 2,000 feet down, encrusted with a multitude of living corals. An incredible diversity of marine life from pelagics to reef dwellers and turtles abound, even the occasional dolphin!

 

Now a fully protected conservation zone, work is in progress to list Sipadan as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Borneo Divers is proud to support this conservation effort and is working with the Malaysian government to secure Sipadan’s future.

Diving in Mabul

Diving in Mabul offers the additional benefit of extended bottom times as dive sites are mostly shallow, while the mild current allows for easy drift dives. The sandy bottom also allows for a less “mucky” and therefore easier dive compared to other macro sites. No wonder Mabul is listed as one of the Top 50 Best Dive Sites in the World by sportdiver.com.

Sipidan - June2016

Good stay and very pleasant people. Accommodated me for additional sipidan passes. Great diving in Sipidan. Good visibility. I also did my Advanced Diver Course. However thee diving around Mabul was very low visibility, but however, it showed some promise.
