We are both AOW and when we travel we always take our own regs, masks and DCs. I am a photographer so the whole kit goes as well. Accommodation The accommodation was VERY good; sure there is...

Diving in Semporna has been industrial. The result of industrialzation is mass production, so is Scuba junkie. You don't wanna be industrialized in learning diving. Diving is one of the most dangerous extreme sports and needed to be taken seriously. But in scuba junkie, they compress 4 days OW courses into 3 days, and even not letting you have the... More

We book a boat with them the minute we arrived in Semporna. They even let us order a drink a cross the street because of the long bus ride. On the way back we had a day trip with uncle changs and we were just looking for a shower before the flight. We called them and asked that. No problem... More

The room look much better than website. Clean, neat and tidy. However, the disappointed part is the shower, too slow, and the fresh water a bit salty. In overall still worth to visit due to the price factor. Value for money

I did both my advanced and resque course with Scuba Junkie. A very good diveshop where things run smooth. They have a good system going and during my time there the boat always left on time in the morning. The diveshop has nice and clean rooms. Both doorm and private, you get a discount on the price if you dive.... More

I chose Scuba Junkie based on reviews on Trip Advisor. They proved to be an excellent choice. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about underwater life (able to spot camouflaged animals and tell all of their names after the dive), and the hotel staff was friendly, accommodating, and flexible. I believe the dive package was a great deal, too. I did... More

From the welcome in Semporna, to the transfers to Mabul Island, and the feats of logistical gnastics they perform every day getting upwards of six boats off and away to 3 - 4 dives and island daytrips a day, this is a very slick and professional outfit. We enjoyed the daytrips best, with Sipidan and Siamil Islands being the highlights.... More
