Several dive operators organize their PADI Open Water diving courses in Sibuan Island, including Scuba Junkie and Sipadan Scuba.Sibuan Island is a macro divers paradise and truly one of our favorite islands. Sandy bottoms mixed with rubble as well as sloping reefs provide a playground for divers to hunt within. Pygmy seahorses are a virtual guarantee, found in 30 meters of water on various sides of the islands. This is one of the best islands in the area for frogfish, as numerous ones make Sibuan their residence. Another highlight is the mandarin fish, which live in the black urchins that line the shallows and are on every macro diver’s wish list. Nudibranchs are found by the dozen, as are crocodile fish, lion fish, and scorpion fish. Another treat is the hammerhead nudibranchs, black and royal blue in color, found in the shallows of Mandarin Bay.There are a few nice dive sites around Sibuan Island, the most popular are; Left Shoulder, Mandarin Point, Mandarin Bay, Froggy's and the Drop-Off. Nearby Sibuan you can find Mantabuan Island; with a couple of fabulous dive sites. If you have the chance, definitely go dive at these sites.With a combination of shallow plateaus and steep slopes, the island is a regular stop over during open water diver courses and experienced diver programs.
