Ask any Malaysian and they'll say how much they love the beautiful islands in Sabah. With stunning islands surrounded by crystal clear water, it's also one of the best diving spots in Malaysia! With the travel restrictions that are happening in the country, it'll be awhile before we can resume our domestic travel plans again. But if you're looking for places to inspire your next scuba diving trip in Malaysia, there's a place in Sabah that you should check out next! Situated off Mabul Island in Sabah, make your way to Seaventures Dive Rig that happens to be the first and only dive rig in the world! Even if you've explored many diving spots in Malaysia, you've probably never seen a dive rig quite like this. Thanks to the dive rig's close proximity to the different islands, Seaventures Dive Rig has four dive sites where you can get up close to the hawksbill turtle at Sipadan Island, blue ring octopus at Mabul Island, giant grouper near Kapalai and the sunken wrecks around the Seaventures House Reef. When you're here, you can enjoy unlimited dives under the Dive Rig and they even allowed night diving on buddy system. Seaventures Dive Rigoffers several diver and non-diver packages, but do note that it excludes Sipadan diving permit fee of RM140, equipment rental, and other items that are not included in the package.Diver package includes
  • Schedule return transfers
  • 3 daily boat dives after course days
  • Unlimited optional house-reef dives
  • Accommodation
  • Full-board halal meals
Non-diver package includes
  • Scheduled return transfers
  • 3 daily boat snorkeling
  • Accommodation
  • Full-board halal meals
Since the diver and non-diver packages include accommodation, you'll have the option of staying in a standard room (starting at RM3,600 per diver for twin-sharing) or dormitory (starting at RM1,850 per diver). If you're planning to dive at Sipadan Island, stay in a standard room (for a minimum of 3 nights), so your Sipadan diving permit is guaranteed. For guests staying in the dormitory, your Sipadan diving permit is not guaranteed but you can dive or snorkel around Mabul Island or Kapalai. That's because Sabah Parks limits Sipadan Island to 120 visitors daily and the permits are shared among resorts and dive operators around Mabul Island and Semporna. If you're looking for more things to do in Sabah, make sure to add Seaventures Dive Rig to your bucket list!
