The 4 of us, all failed the OW course (what's the odd right). The instructor Popeye assigned to us was still new and not good in keeping up with the pace of teaching. 2 days are not sufficient for OW course, it's very rush, any slight repeat of skills by any member will drag the entire schedule. There is curfew... More

My two instructors, Chenpei (Popeye) and Chris, are indeed AMAZING. I fell in love with scuba diving because of their teaching. Other people I met here are also fun and friendly. Came as a solo traveller, left with beautiful memories and friendship. I also saw dolphins on the last day of my diving trip at Sipadan Island! No luck with... More

We came here for 4 days diving at the start of September and had an amazing time. We completed our advanced open water here and I cannot imagine there would be anywhere better to do it. Our instructor Cooze was a real geezer. Very fun and made us feel at ease. I am quite a nervous diver but he gave... More

Although the payment term is a little bit.... but when you arrive at Sipadan Scuba, you gonna feel their profession and responsibility. I'd especially like to thank Melissa. She is such a beautiful and responsible instructor, I really enjoy these days with her. I will miss her. Thanks Melissa, Andy and Sipadan Scuba. Everything will be engraved on my heart!

I'm afraid to say our experience of Sipudan Scuba were not good at all from en experience and safety point of view. Diving in the Semporna area is not cheap and reputation counts for everything. When we arrived we found actually they were set up to cater for the masses of Chinese tourists who come on mass. This meant lack... More

Dear Richard We have taken notice of your comment. What you forgot to mention however are several facts that are beyond our control: 1. You booked a day trip to an entirely different island, which happens to be less than half the price of a trip to Sipadan. You did this despite crystal clear instructions and recommendations by e-mail and... More

As a newbie to the diving world who was really eager to dive at Sipadan, Sipadan Scuba turned out to be one of the best choices. I'd taken their four day OWC and AWC and stayed at the Holiday Dive Inn. My instructor, Cooze, is an instructor you'd definitely want to tag along to explore the reefs really well. The... More
