If you are hard core diver...this is the place on earth where you want to go !
Diving in Sipadan is spectacular. I stayed 7 days/6 nights on the rig and got opportunity to dive in Sipadan for 3 days...15 dives in Sipadan !!! Ratio for Sipadan permits is the best there is !!! Barracuda point is the most famous dive site in there...no wonder why...it´s just great. In 6 days I made 25 dives...because last morning I didn´t dive .I had to dry my own gear...
I took my cavern diving course over there and I got chance to see Turtle tomb...that place is awesome. I had best cavern instructor ever...Thank you Craig ! Craig is very demanding instructor , but when you are in the cave you will understand why...what he teaches to you will save your live if something goes wrong. Btw...Seaventures is the only resort in Sipadan what can offer you Cavern diver-speciality course.
If go to Sipadan only for diving ... the Rig is the place where you want to go. It is great place for solo traveller as well...all people in there are because of diving , so you don´t have problem to find someone with whom you can have a chat.
But if you want to party,swim in the ocean, laying on the beach,expecting 5 star hotel rooms...you better go somewhere else...
Crew is just great in there...every single one of them trying to do whatever they can to make you feel comfortable.
Especially thanks to: Suki ,Craig, Titta, Mio, Miji, Cat, Helmi, Mando and of course Sham !
