We just came back from a 6D5N diving trip at Seaventures Dive Rig. We stayed in a 4-person dorm room, but the rig was not full so we had it to ourselves. We were also fortunate enough to dive at Sipadan for an extra day during our stay (2 days total). This all depends on luck. The trip was excellent... More

Unique experience. Diving paradise. Professional DM Su and Jo. Clean room and delicious meals. Unlimited dive below oil rig. Guaranteed Sipadan dive and we managed to see school of bumhead, school of jackfish, Napoleon, tornado barracuda, sharks, turtle and etc. Enjoyed my stay here and unforgettable 10m rig jump. definitely will come back again.

​​One of the most unique places I've ever stayed at. Rough around the edges, but when the ocean and its cooling breeze is surrounding you everywhere you go, any other "worry" is quite minor in comparison. You are even completely FREED from mosquitoes due to its unique location - seriously, magic. ROOM: small, akin to an interior cabin in a... More

The Seaventure Rig is a fantastic place to go, if you want to dive in Sipadan. The staff is friendly, professional and knows the reefs. The food buffet varies everyday and you will find always a delicious dish. I slept in a 4-dorm and as the rig was´t booked completely, i could stay there all by myself. Everything is well... More

I spend 4 night at Seaventures to do go Scuba diving. At first I mist flight to get to Tawau and had to spend night in Semporna in a backpacker place. Luckily travel agency (emily) helped me out. Seaventures then charged me full price for separate boat transfer (634myr) to get to the Rig and arrive at 8 am. Otherwise... More

Just came back from 3 days of diving off Seaveatures with friends. It was indeed a unique experience to be able to dive off an oil rig, with a lift that literally lowers you into the sea! The Diving Team was great, as was the rest of the Rig Crew. Didn't do any diving on the last day so was... More

Really great place to stay when going diving on Sipadan. Rooms are suitable, but we didn't spend much time in the room. Food was great. Loved the house reef diving, especially loved the fact that there was pretty much unlimited time on the house reef. Sipadan diving was really great love it all

My girlfriend and I stayed 5 nights in a VIP room, which was better than I really expected it to be. The staff was very helpful, the food was good, and we got to dive 3 days on Sipadan! The rig is in the perfect place to enjoy all of the amazing dive sites.

I went to Seaventures in November 2015. It was one of the best dive holidays I have ever been too. The rooms are very average, rather rundown, however the food is exceptional. The dive masters and the staff were fantastic. Everyone was always polite and happy to accommodate. I would go back in a flash. I visited some of the... More
