About Sipadan

Pristine reefs & rich biodiversity await you in the Celebes Sea, with imposing Turtles & Sharks greeting you at almost every dive. And as if that wasn’t enough, over 3,000 species of fish call Sipadan home, making it a feast for any diver’s eyes; In waters with visibility between 20m – 50m!

Be mesmerized by whirling schools of Barracuda, Eagle Rays, White Tip Sharks & schools of Hammerheads on our guided boat dives, or appreciate their smaller counterparts like Pipefish, Nudibranches, Chromis & Sweetlips instead. Bumphead Parrotfish are also commonly sighted in the area too; it’s no wonder divers tout Sipadan as the best dive site in the world.

Do take note that Sipadan has a “no gloves” policy to discourage scuba divers from damaging the reefs; Although this somehow doesn’t apply to the resident Hawksbill Turtles who are regularly seen chomping off bits of the reef & turning it into a satisfying meal!

You will be diving in & around the islands of Sipadan, Mabul, Kapalai & Si Amil Island, where many divers return for repeat visits. Currents run through the channels between the islands which makes for some good drift diving opportunities there too. Visibility ranges from 10m – 30m & water temperatures are pleasant, hovering around the 28C mark.

The coral communities at Sipadan are pristine, so shallower coral colonies make for an animated safety stop & provide the perfect backdrop to pose for photos while waiting for a safe ascent. The best time to dive Sipadan is from April to September, with the highlight of most being caught in a schooling tornado of fish, so even though we hope that you can experience fine weather on the trip of your dreams, we also secretly wish you get to see a whirling cyclone of fish on your dive!

Mabul Resort

A stone’s throw from the white sandy beach, you will relish the opportunity to lounge on the decks with ocean views & Borneo mainland in the distance. Comfortable chalet-style living in this quiet resort means you get to unwind after a day of diving with the frenzy of fish at Sipadan. Or perhaps jump into the pool for some respite from the active marine life.

The Mabul Resort offers a juxtaposition of tourists & locals living alongside. Photographers will love wandering around the area for snapshots of villagers, fishermen & local children going about their usual days which make for interesting compositions against the beach & jungle backdrops of Mabul Island.

Look out onto the Celebes Sea from your private veranda, enjoy the teasing aroma of barbecue between the fresh smell of the sea breeze, feel the spray from the ocean on your face… Locals on Mabul Island always have a smile on their faces; Visit Borneo Divers Mabul Resort & you’ll understand why.
