We had booked our trip many months in advance to ensure we got the accommodation we wanted and our Sipadan permit. Its probably wise to do this if you are traveling in peak holiday season like we were, especially if you stay at Mabul island as Scuba Junkie is so popular there. The email service and help with infos was... More

I stayed at the Scuba Junkie resort on Mabul last month and I can say the dive team is one of the best I've ever experienced. The DMs on each dive were incredibly professional and knowledgable about all the dive sites. On our boats even although there could be 10 or 12 divers we were split up into groups of... More

I didn't stay here but they were the best of the Island. They are environmentally conscious and are doing some great things. If I ever when back to Mabul i'd stay here.

The email communication with Mike was very easy and fast and their reservation system is flawless. Ted joined us during our first open water dive. He is a very professional, careful and patient dive instructor. We were so glad he was joining us! Next time we will do our PADI course by Scuba Junkie. Definitely!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights while we completed our open water PADI. We booked the trip from the office in KK and we managed to get a space in the dorm with only two days notice. The price for the PADI, accommodation and transfers was very reasonable and the terrace bar was an incredible place to... More

Went diving here and didn't think I would enjoy the specialised macro diving but it was stunning. The dive masters were all enthusiastic and so knowledgeable about the marine life and that made the experience so special. Would certainly recommend diving with scuba junkie to anyone.

Can't say enough about Scuba Junkie. We did our Open Water certification with them and couldn't be happier. Our instructor (Andy) was calm and professional. Our divemasters for the fun dives (Peanut and Allison) were incredibly informative and patient with the newbies. This place is impeccably run in a jaw dropping beautiful location with great people. Highly recommend.

This dive shop did everything right. 1) The shop replied promptly to all my emails leading up to the trip and did a great job answering my questions. 2) They are very well organized and make things easy for the diver. 3) The dive masters are amazing. We had Pajan the first day who was great. He made sure we... More

Took my open water and advanced certificate with Scuba Junkie. Really professional instructors and you feel safe all the way through. No pools, everything goes on the water:-) Great gear also. The dive shop/bar/company is a great place to hang out after diving. The dive sites are top of the league - some of the best diving I've ever done.... More
