My husband and I booked the 6D5N Sipadan package with Scuba Junkie on Mabul Island and we had the best time! We were immediately impressed by the Semporna office staff who greeted us warmly upon our arrival and clearly explained what to do the next day for our boat dives and transfer to the island. Once we arrived at Mabul Beach Resort, again we received excellent service and clear instructions as to how the resort operates and where to be at what time for meals and dives. Our Deluxe air-con room was clean and comfortable, with a lovely balcony and hammock! Possibly what impressed us the most were the dive guides and staff in general. There is a real culture at Scuba Junkie of loving diving and loving marine life. It just shows on everyone. The staff have a ball and there is a true sense of community there. The owners are obviously passionate about responsible diving and this is what makes Scuba Junkie such a pleasure to be a part of for a few days! Big cheers to our wonderful guides, especially Red who managed to get us 3 days in a row! Guide to diver ratios are usually kept small and on some dives we were lucky enough to have one guide per diver! Sipadan was certainly amazing (but you already know that from the thousands of other internet sources) but that is not to dismiss the other world-class dive sites at Mabul, Kapalai, Sipadan Barrier Reef and our other favourite island Siamil. In fact, there was such great variety of dive sites that we never dived the same site twice in our 6 days. The dive boats are excellent and the gearing up /packing up process made very easy by the efficient jetty staff. We made lots of new friends over dive trips and mealtimes and are already planning our return to this wonderful place. It was a most welcome relief at the end of our 4 week holiday in Malaysia to be in a place where staff filled us with such confidence that we could relax and do what we were there to do… eat, sleep and dive! Make sure you do book a couple of months in advance though, as they were mostly fully booked while we were there in January.
