Dive Sipadan

Dive Destinations

The spectacular diving unrivalled anywhere else in the country, has made Malaysia one of the top diving destinations. Encounters with turtles, resident schools of jacks and barracudas are almost assured around the tiny coral islands. A popular feature of this island is the precipitous reef wall: Just a mere 8 metres from the dive station of the 'Sipadan Dive Lodge' the wall plunges to about 680 metres. Many divers have remarked that staying and diving on the island is similar to doing so from a live-aboard ship. You enjoy the ease of multiple shore an boat dives, with up to 5 dives per day.
