Sipadan Island has vast range of creatures such as monitor lizards with length of more than 1 meter. 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.
