“Scuba Junkie Mabul Irland”

Scuba Junkie Diving
Ranked #3 of 18 things to do in Semporna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We were visiting Scuba Junkie at Mabul irland and it was awesome. The rooms and the dinnig room and food was very good. And the bar at second floor was a great place to spend the evenings. But the best of our stay there was the diving.We got to see so much for the guide showed us so many things we never discovered our selfes. We had a really good guide from Sweden (Fred). He had patient with everyone in the group and made everyone felel relaxed. He was very careful with the saftey and gave an excellent briefing of the dive. Thanks Scuba Junkie and espesially to you Fred for making our stay there AWESOME.

Kind reegards from a satisfied customer.

Thank Hugo v

We absolutely loved every minute of our diving adventure here at Scuba Junkie! The company is really well organised and offered us cheap accommodation on the spot. We stayed in Semporna (not pretty, but budget wise great) and went diving for 3 days in Kapali, Mabul, Sibuan and Mantabuan. The dive spots are AMAZING!!

The crew on the boat was really friendly, helpful and fun, especially our boy Edgar. All the equipment was in good state and there were a lot of spare parts on the boat.

However, our dive trips wouldn't have been this amazing if it wasn't for our DM, Audrey. She helped us out with all our little concerns, gave us confidence and showed us all the creepy and beautiful creatures under water! She's the best DM we've had so far!

So, a big big thanks to the whole crew from Scuba Junkie, we had a blast :)

Incredibly organized and efficient. Prices are good too. I did 6 dives over two days and had a great experience. DMs are very friendly and knowledgeable. Groups and boats are small and intimate. I can't think of even one negative aspect.

I can honestly say I'm still on a high from my trip with Scuba Junkie.

The diving itself is an absolute dream, definitely understand why the area has such a good reputation. I personally love macro stuff, so am still buzzing after seeing things like a blue ringed octopus and peacock mantis shrimp- all the DMs and instructors are eagle-eyed and a pleasure to dive with.

The staff are all highly professional, and very easy company to spend several days with. The organization cant be faulted, whether you stay in Semporna (as I did) and head out each morning from there to Mabul, or if you stay at the SJ Mabul Resort (which is beautiful). The shared dorm in Semporna is clean and comfortable and with almost everyone there diving, it was quiet at night and most guests seemed to get up at the same time each morning, so no annoying bag rustling disturbs you.

Absolutely massive thanks to Tim, Gav, Jon and Ben for your time and dedication to the search for pygmy seahorses. Alas, they remain as fabled as the unicorn in my mind, but I did enjoy the hunt! Also huge thanks to Caitlyn and Jase for making the boat trips and surface intervals so much fun.

*shakes hand in the universal underwater symbol for AWESOME*
