Had a friendly welcome not only from Seaventures team but also the divers who were staying there. My divemaster, Tak was polite, good and a spotter! During the night, people are chilling with drinks. There was live band on one of the days (weekend) which was nice and people were dancing. Guess it is because of the accommodation being above water, there is no mozzie!

Very nice stay and super friendly staff. Our dive instructor was the best - very good spotter and paying attention. Great place to dive. We did our AOW and the conditions were very good. The dive master always checked before going into water if the dive site was adapted

What an awesome resort! These guys did a wonderful job getting us to Sipidan as much as they could. As a cave diver I really wanted to dive Turtle Tomb and they made it happen. Kelly was our primary DM and guide at Turtle Tomb. Helmi took over, wife's DM from 2018, and did a wonderful job finding small things for us. The dive under the rig is really good too. There is a resident Flamboyant Cuttlefish!

This is the second time I have been to the searig. I absolutely love the hospitality. The dive master Lorence is extremely friendly and very professional. He looked after me from the moment I stepped aboard. The whole group of staff are friendly and couldn't do enough for me. The diving in Sipadan is superb you won't be disappointed.

I had an amazing trip at Seaventures. It was slightly off season, so my friends and i have the whole rig to ourselves. The staffs did all they could to make our trip a memorable one. Our dive master, Hilmi made sure that all of us had a safe diving trip. We were constantly well fed, with Asian cuisine. Kudos to the kitchen. Sadly the wifi wasnt working. It's best to have a functioning telco just in case the wifi doesn't work.

I really enjoy my diving here, highly recommend for people who love adventure and diving. Thanks to our dive master, Tark, which brought us to sipadan and managed to see school of barracuda, jack fish, white tip shark and etc. will definitely come back here for another dives. However, just the food need to improve (too salty) But overall still πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

The team at Seaventures really makes your trip truly satisfying.. Will surely comeback again. We manage to be the 1st boat to reach Sipadan Island & we had the experience to dive Sipadan with minimum crowd.. The boatman & DMs are well experience to spot the main attraction at Sipadan as soon as we dive in.. The room is good & the food is delicious. All in all had a great experience there.

A great place for avid divers. Very welcoming staff. What more can we ask for other than good hospitality, good food, good company, good dives and good weather? The manager Ramesh was very accommodating to us. Highly recommend looking for Helmi as your dive guide. He's able to spot everything! For every dive, he briefs us what we would be able to see and we actually see them. The rooms are pretty small but very cozy. The whole rig is covered by CCTV so you don't have to worry about losing your belongings in common area. The house reef has lots of surprises! Although the visibility wasn't that great when we dived, still, we are able to see tons of macro life down there. Just listen to the briefing carefully and monitor the tides as the current there can be pretty strong. Will definitely be returning to Seaventures again in the near future. Can't wait! They have a pretty good deal running now. Probably one of the cheapest you can find.…

I stayed here for 5D4N and I must say, it was the best dive trip I ever had in my life! First of all, I would like to thank Sandy for helping me throughout my day 1 crisis. She was very patient with me and I could not thank her (and all the staff members) enough for it. The food is amazing, I always had at least 2 servings. The divemasters were very funny and helpful. I was under Mark, Barye, Rey and Tark. Ramesh, the manager I think, was also very kind to me. The service on the rig was perfect. 10/10 for me. The room was okay, it has the basic amenities. The toilet water can be a bit salty due to the osmosis process. But then again, if you are booking this place then I assume you are a diver, so you should not be spending a lot of time in your hotel room anyway. Although it would be nice if the internet was faster, I do not mind it that much. Sipadan was amazing, and Ramesh said I was very lucky as well since I saw barracuda storm, parrotheadfish, jackfish in one day. Every day and every night, you get to see many different creatures. The oil rig dive is unlimited and you can dive as many times as you want. The only catch is there is no divemaster to guide you under the rig. For night dives under the rig, I highly recommend getting a divemaster with you. In my case, Tark is my night dive divemaster. Although you have to pay for it, I think it is worth it as you divemaster will find more unusual creatures, and it would be safer to have an experienced person in night dive anyway. I will definitely come back here soon.…

It was a great experience overall. Sipadan dive site was truly one of the best in SEA. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Special shout out to my group's DM and Instructor, Barye and Tark incredible patience in taking care of all of us. Thank you! Not a day went by that we did not have fun and enjoyed ourselves under and above water. Accommodation was small but came with the basic necessities. You will be spending most of your time out of the rooms anyway. Food was good and plentiful. It's like the chef stalks the buffet line to ensure that all dishes are constantly refilled. You'll never go hungry. One of the best DC's to stay and dive. Will definitely want to come again. Love you guys!
