Tour Description:
Day 1: Tawau Airport / Diving Rig (Lunch/Dinner)
We begin our diving adventure with a pick up from Tawau hotel or airport. Transfer to Semporna town for dive check-in/registration. Boat journey takes approximately 45 minutes, depending on the weather and sea conditions. We will then check in into your room followed by dive briefing by the Dive Centre crew. Before the day ends we will have a Rig orientation dive underneath the Rig.
Day 2 - 5: Diving Rig / Mabul or Kapalai or Sipadan (Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner)
Wake up bright and early and enjoy the scrumptious buffet-style meals specially prepared by the Rig. Look forward to the 3 boat dives between Mabul, Kapalai or Sipadan, where crystal clear waters and amazing underwater sceneries await you.
Mabul is a small island approximately 15 km away from Sipadan, and is surrounded by white sandy beaches and also home to one of the richest exotic marine life anywhere in the world. Diving around Mabul Island you will come across many unique creatures of the depth, such as frogfish, pygmy seahorses, flamboyant cuttlefish, blue-ringed octopus and much more!
Kapalai was once a beautiful island about 200 years ago, but all that remains is only a sandbar due to erosions from the sea. The dive sites around Kapalai are surrounded by a number of artificial reefs, constructed around the Kapalai Resort with sunken boats, huge metal frames and structures specially created to encourage the growth of corals to induce a thriving eco-system of marine life.
Most famous for being one of the top diving sites in the world, beautiful corals and abundant marine life give divers a memory they will never forget. Green and hawksbill turtles, white tip reef sharks, shoals of barracuda and jackfish will surround your dives. Sometimes you can even catch the unique bump head parrotfish as they make their way across the colourful coral reefs in search of a meal!
Unlimited House Reef Diving
If you’re not going out to the various dive sites around Sipadan, how about heading towards rig's very own House Reef, right beneath the rig! Famous for its sunken wrecks, cage swim throughs and artificial bungalows with bridges that make up the reefs, this site is ideal for day or night dives where you will find many uniquely weird marine life hiding about.
Day 6: Departure (Breakfast/Lunch)
On departure day, you may only have a maximum of 2 boat dives for guests without flights on the same day. Finish up your dives or relaxation time and proceed to check out of the Rig at 2:00 pm to head towards Semporna.
