Seaventures really do live up to their expectations as a 5 star rated accomodation here in Tripadvisor. Stayed 6D5N w 2 Sipadan permit @ 3160MYR (pp) We were taken care of the minute we cleared immigration. Land transfer was prompt and took us to Seaventures office in Semporna town to pay the balance. Shortly after we took the 1600 ferry... More

I spent 5 days/4 nights on the rig and overall I am very satisfied with it. I've been staying in the dorm, which was actually a twin cabin. I had way enough space there, air con is working but smelly, the room was smelly as well. Toilets and showers are shared but clean. I think the whole rig could use... More

We stayed on the rig for 6 days and 5 nights. It is the perfect place to stay while diving Sipadan and the surrounding area. Sipadan is all that I had hoped...bumphead parrotfish, barracuda, schools of thousands of jacks, huge turtles, reef shark, and even a manta ray. The diving in Kapalai, around Mabul, and under the rig was great... More

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
