One of the main reasons I love diving is the community. By handing the reigns to "travel consultants" who sound like robots instead of with people passionate about diving (ie. actual divers), what you get are cold, commercialized, money-making interactions that don't win anyone over as there are so many other centers whose team put their heart and soul into what they do. This center is overpriced for the wrong approach to diving.
This is one of best place for diving. Very good staff, excellent dive guides, very fast and good dive boats, rooms very clean, food fantastic!!! We was 8 person there for 5 nights. All of us very happy and enjoyed. You can do 3 dives by boat and after you can do few dives + night dive from the RIG. Starting from sales Depatment till office management at the RIG working very hardly for you. Customer satisfaction very important for them. Me and my friends fell this.
Seaventures was absolutely perfect and blew my expectations out of the water. From the food to the rooms, and hospitality, it was all excellent! Seaventures is a dive resort unlike any other because you are on a renovated oil rig where you live and breathe diving. There are unlimited house dives which allowed me to get 6 dives in a day after going to sipadan each day. They get many permits each day to go to sipadan, and so many instructors to teach specialties. Kelly was an amazing instructor and helped me hone in my buoyancy for the wreck diver specialty. I stayed 4 nights and managed to do 18 dives as well as getting the rid diver specialty course through PADI, which is only available at Seaventures. Everyone who works there is so friendly and very accommodating. When I go back I will only go to Seaventures for the awesome experience I had out of any dive resort!…
Good place to stay and nice staff from the moment we arrive at the tawau airport to the last day we dive at sipadan thank to kelly as our instructor helpfull and informative tq and wonderfull experience
It's a shame,that this place did not meet my expectations and I am very disappointed. The whole platform is rusty and dirty. I understand that this is not a 5 star hotel and it used to be a drilling platform, but for so much money they should do something about it. All service is nice, smiling and like everyone is doing what belongs to them, and yet it does not feel friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Food average and very little choice. Maybe when more people live there is more choice, but there were only three of us. The diving is perfect. House reef and reefs near the islands of Mabul and Kapalai ideal for looking for various small creatures, and on Sipadan there is more action. All reefs are accessible from dive shops in Semporna.
