possible to fly from KK to Tawau for 1 day snorkelling trip

Hi we are family who love the sea so we just wonder if we could do a day trip to Tawau then to Mabul, as I know that Mabul have nice clear sea for snorkeling n mebe diving.

Here is our plan see if make sense to the expert around.

day 1: arrive at KK check into our hotel (we book Sutera Harbour Resort) do some shopping ard kk.

day 2: boat to nice island for snorkeling (island hopping and mabe only one nicer one)

day 3: take morning flight to Tawau then Mabul for some snorkeling. then back KK??

day 4: mebe city tour in KK hunt for nice seafood?

day 5: see you KK back to singapore.

We plan to hire a car and explore KK ourself. Question is we will be there for 5D4N if we just stay in KK I am worry we will be bore, as we prefer the sea and beaches. So just wonder should we travel out of KK to some other islands?

Help would be much appreciated/.

thanks

Hi LC3, if you are a family who loves the sea, snorkeling and diving why not only 1 day in KK, for shopping and visit the city and 4 days in Semporna or Mabul?

In my opinion a day trip from KK is too far travel, not worth it.

thanks Matti80, but seem like Semporna is having some kind of trouble with recent Taiwan tourist been kidnapped. I am not sure is it still safe for us, as we have young one with us too. Is the island around KK good for snorkeling?

Yes, Tunku Abdul Rahman park is good for snorkeling, you can do daily trips to different islands.

Obviously the Tun Sakaran park is much better.

Much better snorkelling in KK than Tawau.
