Excuse this long review again :) The transfer to the rig was well-handled from the moment we arrived at Tawau airport. Van from airport to Semporna where the jetty is takes 1 hour 20 minutes. Payment is made at the Seaventures office in Semporna before a 30 minute boat ride gets you to the rig. The rig is 30 minutes... More

I recently completed 6 days / 5 nights as well as my PADI Advanced Open Water course at the Seaventures dive rig. It included 4 full days of diving with 2 days guaranteed at Sipadan. The instructors, divemasters and entire staff were very professional, organized and helpful. The rooms were, as expected, very basic, clean and functional. The food was... More

Get on it. It's an amazingly unique dive experience. Best to come experienced enjoy the dives rather than for courses. Sipidan is sensational - best to book early to try and secure a couple of days there. The Mabul and Kapali diving is good and you see some cool things but it pales in comparison to Sipidan. I booked one... More

Staying on the rig is simple but substantial:sleep,have some meal,dive,a little chat with other diver.As a diver who would rather stay under water longer than upon,this place is perfect one in the world undoubtedly.All of stuffs are friendly and helpful.Jacky does his job very well.there is a professional cooker too on the rig.it is easy to meet some like-minded people...

I was here with my son during Chinese New Year, 2014. The Seaventures Rig is a one-of-a-kind SCUBA hostel, with facilities that are not normally available but in the fanciest live-aboard vessels. First, the positives: -Absolutely fantastic location and SCUBA facilities: right next to Mabul Island, Seaventures has its own "house reef" for unlimited number of dives, and the dive... More

My plan was to stay for 5 days and then go to Mabul for the rest of my holidays. However, it all came different. I ended up staying my whole time on the rig 10 days in total. This place is just amazing. Delicious food, friendly people and superb divemasters who know what they are doing. If diving is your... More

This was my 2nd time being at SeaVentures and it was as great as the first! I went with my fiancee and she absolutely loved it as well. While the accommodations are basic, the people and the diving are first class. We stayed for 5d4n and managed to get to Sipadan twice. The other diving in the area (Mabul, Kapalai)... More

It's all been said before by other reviewers, and we could not agree more with them. My daughter and I did our cavern and nitrox courses here with Craig, and are very thankful we did. Craig was exceptional in how he delivered these courses, and we are so glad (and grateful) we did. I think the best think I can... More
