The best place I've ever seen in my diving-career. So much things to see, well organized and nice atmosphere. I hope I'll come back one day.

Getting to sipadan is well worth getting the limited permits. The place is definitely one of the best dive sites in the world. No doubts about it.

Quality diving, sharks, jacks, barracudas. Both the jacks and barracudas in big groups very accesable. And some very nice corals.

Go and dive at this place. I have been to Raja Ampat, Komodo, the Great Barrier Reef, and this place was my favorite! Make sure you know when to go as that accounts for the type of stay you will have!

I work in one of the resorts in the area and I cannot get tired of it. Best place in Asia to see turtle, even mating on the surface... The school of jacks is the best thing I have seen in my life, those white tips, napoleons, giant trevally and turtles cruising within the jacks... No words. Bumphead parrotfish are... More

Very good diving, might be difficult for beginners. Due to security issues, there are soldiers on the island

Great snorkling experience, dozens of turtles swimming pass you, schools and schools of fish, humpback fish and other kinds of small fish... One of my best snorkling experience so far~ Would be even greater for scuba diving.. Selected uncle Cheung's scuba diving, everything is ok but for 9 people in the ship just 4 litres of water...

Really really nice dive site! Lots of anymals! I recommend cave dive and barrakuda point dive site. Be careful with the currents.
