It's an amazing journey, beautiful dive in the area, excellent food and good company. It's a place for serious divers, so you don't get bored as everyone was nice and shared their dive experiences all the time. Food was great and they change everyday, also consistently giving you snack between dives. Isolated location so it's perfect for someone who wants... More

We had a good stay but it was far from excellent. Friendly staff, good equipment, enough food and drinks. To sleep on the Rig is just a nice experience. I'ts not a ***** resort and everything is a bit old and rusty but it's part of the experience. There were also some downsides during our stay on the Rig and... More

Although I'm single traveller, I don't feel alone because the rig crew and dive team treat me like I'm one of them. That makes me not feeling boring considering it's a rig. Great hospitality, friendly staff and great diving in Sipadan.

Stayed 6D5N with a large group of diving friends. In terms of security, imo this is the safest you get in Sabah.. Seaventures is a high up platform where there are two access points-one by the lift, the other platform is fully barricaded with barb wires so no access when the door is closed. Every evening there will be fully... More

We stayed on the rig for 4 days /3 nights which gave us one full day of diving in sipadan. The rig is a cool setup with a main area and the rooms are built on top out of cargo containers. All rooms have air conditioning. The basic rooms are small, but realistically you do not need a lot of... More

This place was a lot of fun. Staff were friendly, food was great (particularly lunch, tea and dinner) Equipment was well maintained. I enjoyed my dives with an awesome dive master Taufiq, aka eagle eyes! He spotted a beautiful mandarin fish and a ton of other sea life. Staying the minimum time to get a guaranteed day of diving at... More

There's obviously a reason Sipidan Island is considered a world class dive location and it lives up to its reputation. Regarding the rig, the staff is absolutely unbelievable and the food is surprisingly great, but the rig could use improvement.
