Your dive master will pick an island to visit on traveling day depends on the sea conditions between these 3 islands:


Mabul Island

Mabul is a small oval shaped island fringed by sandy beaches and perched on the northwest corner of a larger 200-hectare reef. The reef is on the edge of the continental shelf and the seabed surrounding the reef slopes out to 25–30m deep.

Mabul is also renowned for its amazing array of macrolife, making it an underwater photographer’s dream location to capture some of the rarest ecological species on film. Flamboyant cuttlefish, blue-ringed octopus, spike-fin gobies, frogfish and moray eels are just some of the spectacular critters you will encounter beneath the waters of Mabul.

Kapalai Island

The mere name conjures the image of crystal clear waters and a floating paradise like no other. A 45-minute trip from Semporna by speedboat, Kapalai island is one of the many beautiful diving havens in this part of the world. However, Kapalai is truly unique because it is not quite an ‘island’.

You will have a breathtaking view of the Celebes Sea no matter where you turn! The restaurant is a wooden deck, where diners can eat indoors or al fresco. There’s even a viewing area in the middle of the restaurant which allows you to see the myriad of marine life passing below. The sundeck, a popular favourite, is a great place to enjoy your novel, work on a tan or indulge in an afternoon siesta.

Tun Sakaran Marine Park

Lying 20 kilometers (approximately 2-hour boat ride away) off the Semporna mainland, The Tun Sakaran Marine Park is the largest marine park in Sabah. It also has the largest concentration of coral reefs in Malaysia.For the marine enthusiast, the blue-green mesmerizing beauty of the Tun Sakaran Marine Park beckons with a hundred and one promises of a wonderful experience both above and underwater.
