Stayed with Scuba Junkies for 3 nights in one of their VIP rooms - which means their room is on the beach. Great views and lovely room. Scuba Junkies definitely have their diving business established. Clockwork schedules, masses of divers, knowledgable DM's and courses available. Food is good and included in the stay, dives are reasonably priced vis-a-vis how expensive... More

從TripAdvisor搜尋到這間潛水店,第一次國外潛水。很專業的導潛團隊,每次下潛都是享受。很美、能見度非常好至少25米、很多海龜、海的顏色很藍很美、水溫很舒服。The best diving center in Semporna, highly recommended 👍🏻

I took my DM course in scubajunkie during the month of May. The diving centre is perfect, they teach in a really high level, they take care of all things you could need, and they work hard every day to protect the enviroment. There is no better place to take a divemaster course. I was part of the family for... More

Right after getting my OW certificate, so the first real dives were done here. I have booked 3 days. All the 9 dives were done at different dive sites ( Mantabuan, Mabul, Kapalai) They were helpful, the gears are in good condition. They did everything to feel myself comfortable and love the diving. They are a very good team and... More

We absolutely recommend this company for diving in Mabul. Everything was well organized and funny. We did de Open Water Course. All instructors are kind, but we have to give our special greetings for our instructor called Paul. He was so patient and kind with us, and his lessons were awesome. The place is one of the best places to... More

Unfortunately I was too late to get a spot on the Island which meant I was based in Semporna. The dives in the end were the same and I only had to get up a boat ride earlier than the island guests. The staff was really friendly while professional and efficient. After a added refresher dive, I absolutely feel like... More

The coral reef bottom at mabul, kapalai, specially sipadan, and the rest of the islands overcompensates for the yawn-provoking city that semporna is. We booked a 2 day diving trip and it was AMAZING. Everyone at scuba junkie was really kind and helpful. Brian, who was out DM, was so enthusiastic and eager to show us the marvel of the... More

I spent little under a month in Malaysia, spending the majority of it in the East. I saw the wild orangutan, climbed Kindabalu, and, on a whim, decided to go to Semporna to learn to dive. Not knowing which one to go to, I went into the one nearest my hostel (that also looked reputable). First thing I noticed is... More

My friend and I ended up diving for 2 days and snorkeling for 1 day with Scuba Junkie and we loved it! While it is a big operation we were pleased to have a great ratio of 2 divers to 1 dive master the whole time we were there! Really well organized and we went to some awesome sites. The... More
