It´s all about diving here. We stayed 4 nights and got to dive two days in Sipadan! Needless to say that diving in Sipadan is amazing but diving in the other sites near Mabul and Kapalai are very good too! You´re also allowed to go diving under the rig where´s an artificial reef. It was nice also but the current... More

I've never written a review on something while I was still there, but the Seaventures Dive Rig is just so amazing I have to get it off my chest. I booked this trip 7 months ago, and thought it would be amazing, but it's beyond that. Probably the best thing I have ever done in my life. First of all... More

If your priority is diving, and not fluffy pink drinks or the thread count in your sheets, this is the place! The diving is fabulous, lodging unique, and the team there to take care of you are superb! VERY attentive and careful in the dive, food is good, bar has sufficiently cold drinks, etc. What more really could you desire,... More

Originally booked a 3N/4D package and ended up extending my stay as I found this place to be so awesome and loved every minute here. All of the dive masters, Craig, Ben, Jackie & Mando were really great guys to be around and so good at spotting things in the ocean. I was lucky and got to dive everyday at... More

I stayed here with a friend for a week in November 2012. The location is beautiful, the staff are brilliant, very helpful and happy and totally knowledgeable on diving, I am a relative beginner when it comes to diving and did my open water diver course while I was here with Craig the diving instructor. It was an incredible experience,... More

I always enjoy reading poor reviews of places that there's nothing wrong with and try to understand what experience the writer had that prompted the score. The only way you could give a low rating to Seaventures is if your idea of a diving holiday is based out of a Mandarin Oriental resort. The place is unusual, great fun and... More

Just left Seaventures after a 5 day/4 night stay on their amazing Oil Rig Dive Station/Resort. If you want a holiday that is all about excellent diving then this really is the place to go. Stunning location just off Palau Mabul near to world famous Sipadan, arriving here takes your breath away a bit. Comfortable bus and boat transfers from... More

Had the most wonderful time on the rig and was made to feel very welcome by all. Staff are all really friendly, all the way from Sham the rig boss, all the way to the day to day staff (especially Craig "Doggie doggie" our instructor who is a great guy to be around, in and out of the water).

This is a RIG for divers only, who wants to dive at Sipadan. Very simple accommodation, good food. If You are not a diver there is nothing to do at all. From the rig You see the closest island and can go there by boat 1 time a day for a walk. Island is very small and smell on it... More

This is the first five star review I have ever given. I was fortunate enough to spend 7D6N on the rig with my fiancée and a friend of ours. From the moment of the first inquiry the experience was incredible. Sandy was full of help and advice, answering every question I had quickly and professionally, being honest the whole time... More
