Stayed for 6 days 5 nights and was granted 2 Sipadan dives. The experience on the rig was excellent with friendly and helpful staff. Clean and simple room, very good food! Our DM's Suki and Jo made our dive trip extra pleasant as they are always on the ball when diving without compromising on safety. I will definitely recommend this... More

As other people have explained, the rig is a no frills style of accommodation with rooms basic, small and shared bathrooms that could do with a little TLC maintenance and cleaning a bit more regular. Diving is what you are there for so the day goes breakfast, dive, morning tea, dive, lunch, dive, then relax or dive again, dinner and... More

Was onboard for a week with my girlfriend in March 2015. The accommodation was clean and simple. The diving was awesome and the staff, friendly and good fun. Would definitely go back again. The only thing that bothered me during my trip is that you can't night dive Sipadan due to the curfew. Apart from that I really enjoyed myself.... More

Stayed for 4 nights and wished I had more time. This is a converted oil rig so don't expect large fancy rooms. The beds are comfortable and the rooms air-conditioned. The food was always amazing and all the staff but in particular the dive instructors were friendly, helpful and passionate about diving. Not much to do other than dive on... More

Having booked for 4 days I ended up extending to a week and was still sad to leave. The staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The new dive equipment was the best I have used anywhere in the world and the food was great to top it all off. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking to... More

This is a truly unique and cool place for a liveaboard. Unlimited dives on the house reef as long as you got a buddy, food is awesome, good atmosphere, game room with an xbox 360, pool, board games , ping pong etc. The facilities itself are a bit worn and old, but come on, you spend most of the time...

The Seaventures Dive Rig was recommended to me by an instructor at a dive shop who hadn't been there, just heard about it being amazing! We booked short after that just taking his word for it. Booking in advance gives you a number of guaranteed Sipadan days depending on how long your stay is. Heading to Malaysia and the rig,... More

If you are looking for a place to stay near Mabul and Sipadan with friendly people, good food, and fun dives, you will be happy on the rig. I loved my week there and hope to make it back someday soon! My days went like this: wake up, eat, dive, eat, dive (3-5 dives a day). Then, sunset on the... More

My wife and I stayed on the rig for 5D4N in March. One of the main things to note is that this is an oil rig so if you are looking for a 5 star resort stay then this is not for you. Having said that, they have done up the rig to make it look decent and it is... More

They offer unlimited diving at the house reef and it's very good to dive with your buddy there. it's very relaxing and easy to navigate and plenty of things to explore. The food is very good. Always some good food and there is plenty to eat at the... More
