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

Loved doing a discovery dive here. I nearly got sucked up by a cuddle fish and had my first taste of diving. Now I am hooked. Would love to come back soon!

Booked with Scuba Junkie for a PADI Open Water Course. The course lasted 3 days, and we stayed one night in their hostel in Semporna (very basic) and one at their resort on Mabul Island (luxury itself). The course was run very well and helped us to become confident at diving. Our instructor could have been a bit happier about... More
