About

Seaventure Dive Resort, Sipadan

Seaventures is a PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Resort located about 9km north of Sipadan Island which ranked as one of the best diving destinations in the world. 

Seaventures sits on a converted platform once commissioned as an exploration oil rig. Seaventures still maintains the allure of a working rig, however, the rooms have been revamp to provide a comfortable stay for divers.

Diving in Sipadan 

Sipadan is the only oceanic island in Malaysia, rising 600 meters from the seabed, 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.

Sipadan Review

I had a great stay at Seaventures Dive Rig. Although its not 5-star accommodation, you aren't paying 5-star prices. It's a unique experience staying on a converted oil rig. Spacious area for dive equipment and tanks, unlimited dives at the great house reef and awesome DMs and crew, and yummy food, make this place a must-go once in your life (at least).
