This was my brother's second trip to Seaventures, for me a great experience waiting to happen.
All information we requested for booking this trip was provided, so there was nothing unexpected to pay for. They arranged our bus and boat transfers which ran like clockwork.
The rig accommodation is basic but clean and comfortable. The self service food very good, always choice and more than you could eat, with hot and cold drinks available all day.The crew even put on a BBQ and band night.
The rig crew were very friendly and helpful.The dive deck set up with individual storage boxes, hanging rails for suits, wash tanks for gear, showers and the lift down to the sea.
Our DM guide was fantastic adding his knowledge and passion to the excellent diving. Dives were sites around Sipadan (the rig having prearranged the permits), Mabul and Kapalai. The sea life is prolific, not just the big shark, barracuda, bumpheads, turtle etc but also the tiny fascinating critters,this is nudibranch heaven !
This is a converted jack up work barge, not a 5 star luxury hotel, but it is a great dive facility. Can't wait to go back.
