This was our 2nd visit to Mabul, so yes, we love the place & the excellent diving. Sipadan really is very special. Everything well arranged - transfers, boat, stay, dives. We were celebrating my husbands' 60th (last time it was my son's 21st) so another memorable stay. Only false note - we were charged Ringit 17 for a glass that... More

Sipadan is a wonderful site for diving your highest expectations will be fulfilled , but the only way to dive every day is to book a cruise with the Celebes explorer which is an old boat with limited comfort and at the time I was on it was raining in my cabin, food were limited but dives were fine and...

We arrive at Tawau the night before and spend the night in town while enjoying our first local seafood at KamLeng. The next morning, we travel by car to Semporna @6am, the road condition is bumpy due to re-construction of the road surface. We arrive at Semporna @8:30am just in time for check-in at Scuba Tiger ready to depart for... More

We went to Borneo Divers in Mabul and the trip was organized by Dive the world. Everything was ok and smooth. The diving in Sipadan is amazing!! Borneo Divers resort guests are mostly Chinese and therefore they serve Chinese food. Another problem are the many generators and compressors very noisy that are very disturbing.

Sipadan diving is awesome. I first visited Sipadan in 1994 when it was still feasible to stay on the island. This time, we opted to stay a full week – Sunday to Sunday on MV Celebes Explorer. The weather conditions for the first 5 days were very good with clear blue skies and good (<0.5m) sea-state. The last two days... More

We booked our honeymoon trip to Kapalai with Dive The World. Initially they were very responsive and helpful, however when our agent went for a vacation, we had extreme difficulty in receiving response for our booking. It took them 11 days to confirm our booking after we transferred the money and this has created a lot of stress for me... More

Hello everyone, I spent 6 days and 5 nights at SMART, which I beleive is enough. To get there is hard and tired, so anyways, once you arrive at Pulau Mabul, they will welcome you with a big smile. The first dive will be at Mabul and they will show you the other side of the island, the bungalow there... More

At night, Celebes Explorer anchors at Mabul and in the morning, it sails to Sipadan for three or four dives after which it returns to Mabul. Great arrangement. It works like a floating hotel. There is room for sixteen people and from Celebes Explorer you can dive at Sipadan every day unlike if you are staying at Mabul or Kapalai.... More

I did a live-aboard trip on the Celebes Explorer to Sipidan. While we dived at Sipidan every day (except the first day) the boat was moored at Mabul the whole time. So every day we had to take a small boat for about an hour to Sipidan. I sort of feel like I might as well have stayed at one... More
