“Like in a dream”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

I've always wanted to visit Sipadan, after all the reviews I heard about it being one of the best places to dive and a must visit destination. And so I decided to plan the trip last month, for my honeymoon.

Though I didn't get to dive at Sipadan, because during that period we weren't certified divers yet & was only taking our diving course while we were staying at Mabul., we did go to Sipadan as part of the snorkeling trip our resort offered. And it was a magically almost dream-like experience.

The beauty of sipadan & its marine life is beyond words, the place is serene & peaceful. The snorkeling we had over there was unforgettable, we saw a white tip shark, a school of green bumped parrotfish, green turtle but the best of all, we were surrounding by a massive school of fish that I'm not sure what they are called. Managed to capture a few videos & photos of that experience with our GoPro Hero3.

Now that we are certified divers, we will for sure dive at Sipadan one day! Looking forward to it! This is a must island to visit at least once in your life!

“One dive/one paradise”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

There are few places on Earth where a diver can see schools of whirling barracuda, a dozen sea turtles of varying species, a handful of sharks, and a teeming reef of angelfish, triggerfish, morays and gobies all on one dive. At Sipadan such sights are common, with lucky divers bringing home stories of whale sharks, manta rays, and schools of hammerheads. Sipadan is well known as a hotspot for biodiversity with over 3,000 species of fish and hundreds of coral species calling the waters off this island home.Sipadan, an underwater paradise populated by strange creatures in Malaysia. Dive before you die:)

Don't go dying just yet Esra! There are lots of other great places to dive. Sipadan is still right up there in terms of underwater encounters - no doubt. Come and see us again for your next dive adventure and we will try and send you somewhere just as good if not better. Plus you can get money off the price with our returning customer discount.
