Tour Description:

Mabul Island is a beautiful holiday destination for divers and non-divers alike. Though famous for its muck diving, non-divers can opt for snorkelling activities around the island or choose to lounge on the beach. Even without going too far from the beach, one can spot turtles, cuttlefish, octopi, eagle and blue spotted stingrays by the house reef. The underwater scenery further away from the beach is even better, so take a boat to go further out to sea where treasures are hidden. Strap on your snorkelling equipment and swim through the clear waters of Celebes sea.

On this adventure, you will get five boat snorkelling trips to Mabul Island, Kapalai and Sipadan. Off the shores of Mabul Island, you can see the gently sloping coral reefs of the Eel garden, Ribbon valley, Stingray city, Lobster wall and Panglima. Corals thrive in abundance here and range in shapes, colours, sizes and textures. The diversity of the marine life at Mabul Island is a sight to behold, and if you’re an underwater photographer, this location is perfect for you to document some of the rarest ecological species.

Kapalai, meanwhile, is no longer an island, but its beauty is not one to be dismissed either. Kapalai is a world-class diving destination but one can also appreciate what it has to offer by snorkelling. Giant potato groupers, bumphead parrotfish, shimmering fusiliers and schooling jackfish can be seen making their way through the calm underwater world as smaller fish like the mandarin fish and friendly batfish flit through corals. There are also wrecks that you can observe just below a shallow sloping reef on a sandy plateau, and many unique organisms like orangutan crabs, spider crabs and hyper-coloured nudibranchs make their home there.

Most famous for being one of the top diving sites in the world our next location is the beautiful Sipadan Island. Surrounded by beautiful corals and abundant marine life, the island is famous for giving divers and snorkellers a memory they will never forget. Green and hawksbill turtles, white tip reef sharks, shoals of barracuda and jackfish will surround your dives. Sometimes you can even catch the unique bump head parrotfish as they make their way across the colourful coral reefs in search of a meal!

For your accommodation, you will get a fan-ventilated twin-sharing room and a shared bathroom. The nights will be cool and breezy and should be adequate in providing your room with a comfortable temperature. Your room will also overlook the majestic Celebes sea, so sit back and relax with the view and some alcohol or carbonated soft drinks at an extra charge. You need not worry about your meals as they are all included, while refreshments and snacks are also free of charge.
