Dive Sipadan

Dive Sipadan - Malaysia

Diving at Sipadan is not rated as the best in the world without good reason. The waters are calm and warm, visibility is generally good, and the quantity and variety of marine life is astounding. On an average day of diving at Sipadan, you would expect to see at least 50 Green Turtles, a dozen sharks, large schools of Barracudas, Jacks, Fusaliers and Batfish. A mere 50 ft. (15M) from the beach, a vertical wall starting at a depth of 10 ft. (3M) and plunges straight down 2000 ft. (600M).


Borneo, the World's third largest island, is located between the Malaysian peninsula, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Most International Flights arrive in Kota Kinabalu from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore or Hong Kong. Visitors to Borneo who are on their way to dive at Sipadan and Mabul usually spend their first night in one of Kota Kinabalu's fine hotels and fly to Tawau early the following morning.

From the Tawau Airport, Borneo Divers transports you by road to the seaside town of Semporna where our ferry boat departs for The Mabul Resort each morning.

The flight from Kota Kinabalu to Tawau takes about 40 minutes. The ride from Tawau to Semporna takes a little under an hour. The boat ride to Mabul from Semporna takes about 45 minutes, depending on weather conditions.
