Sometimes, the boatman carries several tourists for diving & snorkeling as it is one of the rare & pristine beaches on the island. Over all these years, the marine species have benefitted with less plastic bags & garbage being thrown in the water. The sandy beaches of Sipaden Island enthrall me to relax with sunscreen lotions applied on my face.
The radiant heat literary helps me to gather more energy and enjoy the climate with sea water swarming all around. The diving style and quality is quite world class with wide range of diving spots.
The cost of diving is quite expensive as it charged around RM900 with packaged food & stuffs.
There are various dive shops in Sipadan such as Scuba Junkie, Blue Sea Divers, North Borneo Dive & Sea Sports etc.
Prior diving in sea water, I generally compare prices from some of the dive shops as they provide proper equipment along with experienced professionals. Moreover, one has to get proper permits for diving in various spots of Sipadan.
The cost for each permits RM40 to RM140.
The climate of Sipadan is quite moderate throughout the day. Our dive master often takes us to turtle tomb for exploration. He is an old chap with more than 10 years of experience in diving.
He dives along with me to various spot of Sipadan. I feel incredibly lucky as it won’t have been possible in Norway. But, fortunately, I realized my dream of diving in Malaysia with experience professionals along with beautiful beaches and shoreline. The sea water thrills me every time as I feel quite fortunate to dive in Sipadan Island.
Sipadan is one of the fabulous islands I have ever been in my life. After wandering for last several days in Malaysia, I decided that it was time to spend a beautiful weekend in Sipadan Island. Though, most of the resorts are closed in the island for environment concern. But, the whole island is still open for Scuba Diving, Snorkeling along with range of other activities.
I felt that it would be best for me to visit the island in the morning as I could utilize the whole time for scuba diving. As a child in Bodo, Norway, I was quite fascinated about scuba diving as I saw several deep divers with cameras filming sharks and other marine creatures on television. It really inspired me to learn diving in Malaysia.
I successfully enrolled for a certificate course which helped to advance towards a professional diver. Now, I usually dive with my own gear along with a boatman. My boatman is a local native of Mabul, he charges me half the rate as compared to other boatman since I dive quite frequently. He stays afloat in the water, while I dive deep inside with mask, oxygen cylinders, flipper etc. I meditate everyday and walk on my own to explore the Sipadan Island.
