I did a 6-day trip to Semporna/Mabul in December of 2014. I would say that apart from the spectacular diving, that the organization and environmental/social justice aspects of Scuba Junkie stand out the most for me. I planned my trip by email with a request to dive Sipidan as well as the Northern Islands. Luckily a Sipidan permit was available... More

The Mabul Beach Resort is a great place to stay in, both for divers and a non-divers. My husband dived with Scuba junkies for three days and I snorkeled. Both of us saw a lots of wonderful corals and fishes, even if January isn't the best month to visit the islands. Some days the visibility under water wasn't what we... More

If you love diving, I recommend Scuba Junkie. The staff are friendly and professional, and want to give all their guests a really good diving experience. Sipadan is fantastic, and the whole operation is really well organised.

I spend 2 weeks here in september 2014. Scuba Junkie ticks all the boxes! Amazing diving spots, very professional and friendly staff, beautiful rooms and great food. Even if you can't make it to Sipadan, you won't regret it, because the divesites around Mabul have so much to offer. Highly recommended. Can't wait to go back! Thanks to everyone at... More

I did my open water with scuba junkie and I loved every second of it. Professional for start to finish. Very good instructor that made me feel safe during the whole course. I also did a day of fun diving after I completed the one water, and that was also a very good experience. Super friendly staff that really made... More

I did an open water course with scuba junkie and it was one of the best experiences of my trip! I was a bit nervous and struggled with some of the exercises during the course, but my instructor (Deano) was the best and really helped me get more comfortable in the water. The whole organization is super professional and everyone... More

I did my Open Water, Advanced and then one day diving Sipadan with Scuba Junkie. I had a great time throughout my stay and cannot recommend them highly enough. I was a very nervous diver and the instructors were great throughout. A special shout out to my instructors: Jason who taught me all the skills in the first place on... More

Quite a popular diveshop in the area it seems, also quite a big operation. Given the size things are run very smoothly, I booked everything through email and it was all well organized. Small groups for diving, although level can be uneven, but all in all really good organization, good guides and really good diving.

Very professional diving company. We dived in low season so we had a DM between just the two of us for most trips. They were very helpful with all the equipment and helpful with inexperienced divers. All the DMs we dived with were great with pointing out small critters to us. Would be happy to dive with them again.
