Can anyone shed some light on diving at Kapalai and Sipadan for me. I have a trip booked for December to dive there and I have been reading up on trip advisor and I am a little concerned. My partner and I are not uber experienced divers and as it is our honeymoon and diving is only 5 days out of a month trip, we are going to hire our gear there. I have read that the gear is below par and people are pretty pushy when it comes to diving there.
Are the dive masters/ Instructors 'useless' as I read in one post? We can scuba dive comfortably but it would be reashoring to know that there is going to be someone there that knows what is what and can help out if need be.
I have alo read that the days that the boats are not going to Sipadan, the crew and dive masters dont really give a rats about where you go and what you see, is this true? it would be disapointing if it were due to the cost involved in staying there.
Is this the case or is some people just having bad luck when they were there?
