As we are approaching the rig with the twin 140s at full throttle I'm not quite sure which Bond I'm feeling like. It's either Roger Moore in the Spy who Loved Me - when he's approaching Stromberg's lair pretending to be a Marine Biologist (I really want to pat the other half on the bum and say "now don't be...

Spent 5 nights here diving Sipadan. What kind of stationary accommodation could have a more nautical theme that a converted oil rig? Bags of character and efficiently run, to boot. The rooms are (unsurprisingly), nothing special but are functional with cold ac and decent beds. I was travelling alone and paid for a twin share (which would've been fine) but,... More

OK. So this is a place for divers. Although a few non-scuba divers did come and stay, and seemed to be having a great time. It has always been a dream of mine to come and visit this rig and dive. It did not disappoint. We were a bit worried as we booked to stay for 9 days, and most... More

My daughter and I spent 4 days on the rig and had a fantastic time. Apart from the stunning diving around Pulau Sipadan, we really enjoyed the hospitality on the rig. The crew was very friendly and helpful and organized like a clockwork! The accommodations were reminiscent of a working oi rig which gave all this an extra adventurous touch.... More

We were a group of 9 divers that spent about a week at Seaventures. Airport + boat transfers for arrival and departure days went without a hitch. Room, twin sharing: Was something that I expected. It's a refurbished oil rig so don't expect too much. Room and toilet were clean upon arrival. The water from the toilet (sink & shower)... More

We just finished a visit of 4D/3N to Seaventures. We are a married couple in our 30s from NYC. Overall, WOW!! This place is unforgettable! First, a shoutout to a few of the divemasters. Mitch trained my wife for her PADI Advanced OW certification and she is a much more confident and skilled diver now thanks to his talents, passion... More

My friend and I had a great time with Seaventures. Everything with the transport from the Airport worked perfectly and the welcome at the rig was really nice. Our time startet off with some good lunch like any other meal as well. The diving was amazing and really diverse. Obviously Sipadan was the highlight but unfortunately we couldn't add on... More

Spent 5 nights at the rig. Was guaranteed 2 days Sipadan pass but had 4 days at Sipadan. Depends on luck really. Travelled alone and booked twin sharing but as long as the Rig is not too busy they will allow you to have a room to yourself. The room was great!! Clean with comfortable beds and all the facilities... More
