The overall dive experience was awesome. Great dive sites with great drive guiders. Dealing with Ash through e-mail and the phone was very pleasant even though I had tons of questions. The folks manning the diveshop though could be a wee bit friendlier. Would definitely return though. The next I would HAVE to do Sipadan.:)

We took the open water course here. Course was very clear and we saw nice things. I would definitely recommend this diving school!

Since Sipadan needs to be prebooked several month I didnt manage to go. But also Mabul is a really great place with nice underwater life and the island semporna is very pretty as well!!

I stayed with SJ on Mabul island for 1 night. It was my second night on Mabul (stayed with another company the first night), so I was already familiar with the island. An island really worth visiting! It is a great snorkeling spot, and SJ's guides are helpful at spotting out all the sea creatures you get to meet during... More

Well, I'll start by saying that the accommodation options in Semporna weren't much to begin with. This place was very functional, though and right next to the dive shop. So quite convenient.

Meant to stay for a couple days. Stayed for about a week. The diving was phenomenal. I did my PADI AOW, and then spent another 5 days doing fun dives. So cheap. Also in Semporna, the AMAZING seafood is so goddamn cheap, and just down the road. The best after a day of diving. Probably the cheapest diving I did... More

The whole dive experience was excellent, efficient, professional and very well run. As someone that only gets to dive once a year you felt well cared for and in safe hands.

I did my first dive ever with Scuba Junkie. I took the Scuba Discovery Dive where we went from Semporna to Mataking. On one dive we saw over 40 turtles and there I was falling in love with diving and the underwaterworld. So I took the Open Water Course at their really nice Resort in Mabul Island. They offer the...

They have it all, good diving outfit, nice place to stay, bar and food. Highly recommend! Good location on the island as well. Book in advance for sure as Sipidan permits sell out with this resort/dive group quicker than others. You cant stay here unless you dive with them - even if they dont have a Sipidan permit - book...
