As one of the top-ranked dive sites with limited permits available, Sipadan is by no means a cheap dive. For one day of diving (three dives + equipment rentals), I paid RM($ USD). Plus, I had to book two nights at Holiday Dive Inn for an additional RM ($25 USD).

For me, diving at Sipadan. Book as early as possible: The early diver gets the Sipadan permit, especially during the peak season. Stay a minimum of 3-days, 2-nights: You’ll need a full day to dive in Sipadan, so you won’t be issued a permit on your arrival or departure day.

It is a minutes boat ride south of Mabul. Sipadan is the tip of a mountain with steep underwater walls all around it. These walls drop to m on the Mabul side of the island and m on south side.

Sipadan. Most people come for the world-famous Sipadan Island, home to thousands of turtles, schooling sharks, swirling barracuda, and awe-inspiring coral walls dropping more than m / 2,ft straight down to the sea floor. Sipadan is frequently voted as the worlds number 1 dive destination, but the diving doesn't stop there.

Blanketed with lush rainforest, Sipadan is the only oceanic island in Malaysia. (The Sipadan Island Marine Park sets a limit of visitors a day, so divers/snorkellers need to book a guaranteed spot in advance.) On the boat ride from Semporna to the Seaventures dive rig, I kept thinking that this transformation is the story I will discover.

Sipadan is a seamount, a half-square mile of dense coconut palm groves and white-sand beaches. A coral reef, which grew over an extinct volcanic cone, surrounds the island. Inthe Malaysian government designated the island and surrounding waters as a marine park, ordering the few resort operations on the island to leave.

Sipadan, about hours from the mainland, was actually once an ancient extinct volcanic cone. Coral has grown from the volcanic rock mountain over thousands of years and the ecosystem that has formed is something special. The island is tiny and something out of a Robinson Cruesoe book.
