We loved our time on the rig. Even though dive conditions weren't great while we were there, we felt taken care of and part of a ragtag family. Our room was very comfortable, food was awesome and the staff went above and beyond. They even helped get me jungle shoes for our DVFC portion of the trip, when I didn't...

We stayed on the rig over Thanksgiving, so it was pretty quiet - which gave us more access to Sipadan than normal. Your permit for Sipadan lasts for 24 hours. You dive 3 dives in the morning, with an extra 2 dives in...
